Is it possible to give a user sFTP access but disable FTP access? I would rather not have usernames and passwords sent in clear text and don't want to rely on users remembering to use only sFTP. I don't mind if I have to disable FTP access to all my accounts if that's what it takes.

I found this forum thread which says it isn't possible, but it's a few years old so I'm hoping that maybe something has changed.

It's not yet possible to give only sFTP access and disable FTP access. This is something we are looking into.

Is there any update on this topic? It would be nice to not have to rely users to select sFTP instead of FTP.
