Adds an ExtraShield of protection and security to your WordPress by using your mobile phone to generate a one-time password for login.
Since Version 0.7, the plugin will attempt to register itself with the ExtraShield Authentication Servers during initial activation, eliminating the need for manual registration.
NO identifiable information is ever sent during the automated registration process, just an md5 hash of the following md5($_SERVER['SERVER_ADDR'].md5(rand(10000000, 99999999)))
After installing the plugin and the ExtraShield mobile application on your mobile phone, the plugin gives you 3 "WordPress Login Modes" :
Login using your Password AND Mobile Security Code. [Recommended]
In this mode, you need to enter your UserName, Password and the Mobile Security Code generated on your mobile phone to access your WordPress account.
This means, for anyone else to access your account, he/she needs to know your WordPress account UserName, Password and be able to access the ExtraShield Application installed on YOUR mobile phone to get a valid Mobile Security Code .. Pretty hard, right !
Login using your Password OR Mobile Security Code.
In this mode, you need to enter your UserName and either your Password or Mobile Security Code generated on your mobile phone to access your WordPress account.
This mode is useful if you occasionally need to access your WordPress account from insecure/public places. For example, at an internet cafe you may access your account using the Mobile Security Code instead of your password, thus eliminating the risk of your password being hijacked by Trojans or Viruses, and when you are back at home or a secure environment, you may use your normal password again .. It's all about choices !
Login using Mobile Security Code only.
In this mode, you only need to enter your UserName and the Mobile Security Code generated on your mobile phone to access your WordPress account.
If you don't want to remember a password, this mode is for you !
Just choose your preferred "WordPress Login Mode" and Press "Update User" .. That's it!
