WordPress Two-Factor Authentication TFA Description

The password is the standard security implementation in the computer world. However, passwords can be guessed, hacked, or intercepted.

To combat these weaknesses you should install two-factor authentication methods, which provide a secret login key with one time passwords (OTP) that are not vulnerable to brute-force attacks

Securing Users Accounts

Unlike passwords, two-factor authentication (2FA) is a two-step process that asks for an additional unique identification.

Examples are: sending OTP to your mobile phone, sending OTP to your email account, or by using an external service such as Google Authenticator

The Secure WordPress Login plugin from CreativeMinds offers a robust solution with multiple two-factor authentication methods.

It lets the WordPress administrator choose from four different options to secure their WordPress site login.

Two-Factor Authentication Methods

The two-factor authentication (2FA) plugin from CreativeMinds can employ the following authentication methods:

  1. Google Authenticator – Require secret from Google’s secure app
  2. Mobile Phone SMS – Send a text message with a one-time key
  3. Email Code – Send a message with a one-time use code
  4. Email Link – Send a message with a one-time use link

The WordPress Two-Factor Authentication plugin also lets the WordPress administrator define which user roles require two-factor login credentials. The admin can of course apply our enhanced security check for all users.

Limit Logins by Number of IPs and Devices

Restrict how many IPs and/or devices can log in to each account and apply yet another security layer!

For example, only allow the admin to log in from a specific computer. If someone tries using another device or IP, the login won't work.
