How do I gain access to my website if I get locked out using the Google Authenticator?

You can obtain access to your website by one of the below options:

  1. If you have an additional administrator account whose Two-Factor (2FA) is not enabled yet, you can login with it.
  2. If you had set up KBA questions earlier, you can use them as an alternate method to login to your website instead of 2FA.
  3. Rename the plugin from FTP – this disables the Google Authenticator (2FA) plugin and you will be able to login with your WordPress username and password.

For detailed information, Please check on our website. Locked Out.

I have enabled Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for all users, what happens if an end-user tries to login but has not yet registered?

If a user has not set up Two-Factor yet, the user has to register by inline registration that will be invoked during the login.

I want to enable only one authentication method for my users. What should I do?

You can select the two-factor authentication methods under the Login Settings tab. The selected authentication methods will be shown to the user during inline registration for example if you select Google Authenticator it will be shown on login. [PREMIUM FEATURE]

I have a custom/front-end login page on my site and I want the look and feel to remain the same when I add 2 factor?

If you have a custom login form other than wp-login.php then we will provide you the shortcode. Shortcode will work only for the customized login page created from WordPress plugins. We are not claiming that it will work with all the customized login pages. In such a case, custom work is needed to integrate two-factor with your customized login page. You can submit a query in our Support Section in the plugin or you can contact us at for more details.

If you are facing any issue while logging in with our Google Authenticator plugin or there is a conflict with any other plugin.
