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.

Supported Methods

Loginizer Security Supports the following :

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

Enabling 2FA

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.

Individual User Settings

Each user will now be able to see the My Security link in the left menu. They will need to configure their preference and once they do so, they will be asked for the relevant input during their next login.

OTP via EMail as Default

When Two Factor Authentication each user has to set their preference.
However, as the Admin you can make the OTP via EMail as the default.
All users will then get a OTP in their email to login and immediately secure all your WordPress accounts.
