Google Authenticator - Encourage User Activation

Allows administrators to either nag users to enable two-factor authentication, or force them to enable it.

The Google Authenticator plugin is a great way to add two-factor authentication to your site, but in order for it to work, users have to activate it for their account themselves. They may not know that it's available, or may not be motivated to enable it.

This plugin helps administrators to encourage users to activate it, and has two different methods for doing that, depending on how strict you want to be:

  • Nag the user: An error message will appear at the top of the Administration Panels, asking them to enable two-factor authentication. The message goes away when they enable it. This is the default behavior.
  • Force the user: The user will be prevented from doing anything in the Administration Panels until they activate it. They're temporarily assigned the role of a Subscriber, and redirected to their profile whenever they try to access another screen. Once they enable two-factor authentication, their original role is restored and they can access other screens again.
