Authy for WordPress

Add Authy two-factor authentication to WordPress. Users opt in for an added level of security that relies on random codes from their mobile devices.

How can a user disable Authy after enabling it?

The user should return to his or her WordPress profile screen and manage connections under the section Authy for WordPress.

What if a user loses the mobile device?

Any administrator (anyone with the create_users capability, actually) can disable Authy on a given user account by navigating to that user's WordPress account profile, and following the instructions under Authy for WordPress.

Can I limit the user roles able to use Authy for WordPress?

The allowed user roles can be set on the plugin settings page.

How do I set the API keys in wp-config.php?

In a variety of situations, setting the API keys via the plugin's settings page can be undesirable. For example, when network-activating Authy for WordPress in a WordPress Multisite (Network) setup. Recognizing this, API keys can be set in wp-config.php.

To take advantage of this option, add the following entries to your site's wp-config.php before the /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */ line:

  • define( 'AUTHY_API_KEY_PRODUCTION', '' );
  • define( 'AUTHY_API_KEY_DEVELOPMENT', '' );

Fill in each empty argument with the corresponding API key and Authy for WordPress will always use these settings.
