Two-Factor Authentication for WordPress
CleanTalk has launched Two-Factor Authentication for WordPress admin accounts that will improve your website security and make it safer, if not impossible, for hackers to breach your WordPress account.
Two-Factor Authentication works via e-mail. It makes the Two-Factor Authentication more reliable. The reason is that if an intruder knows your password they also need to know your e-mail address that is being used to get an authorization code and the password to your e-mail.
This method almost eliminates the possibility for strangers to get access to your account.
It requires a bit of your time but Two-Factor Authentication immediately gives a much higher level of protection.
With your first authorization, the CleanTalk Security plugin remembers your browser and you won’t have to input your authorization code every time anymore. However, if you started to use a new device or a new browser then you are required to input your authorization code. The plugin will remember your browser for 30 days.
To activate Two-Factor Authentication go to the settings of the CleanTalk Security plugin and enable the option “General Settings” -> “Miscellaneous” -> “Two-Factor Authentication”. The letter with your authorization code will be sent to your e-mail that you put into the general settings of your WordPress website.
You will be notified by e-mail each time the Two-Factor Authentication was successfully passed.
By spending a few minutes to set up Two-Factor Authentication you save your time and other resources by not having to deal with the consequences of the hacked website.
