Overview

This guide will help you to enable Two Factor Authentication for all users. Two Factor Authentication, also known as 2FA, two step verification or TFA (as an acronym), is an extra layer of security that requires not only a password and username but also something that only, and only, that user has on them, i.e. a piece of information only they should know or have immediately to hand - such as a email, 2FA Apps, etc.


Enabling 2FA

Loginizer Security Supports the following :

  • OTP via Email
  • OTP via Mobile App
  • User Defined Question & Answer


As an Admin you can enable all of them and let the user choose their choice of 2FA.

To enable it, please go to WordPress Admin Panel -> Loginizer Security -> Two Factor Auth.
