Adds 2-factor authentication to your site. Use Google Authenticator or Authy enforced security.
If you are concerned about security, you should look into 2-factor authentication.
Quick reminder: 2-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security by requesting a one time password in addition to standard username / password credentials.
This plugin uses the Google Authenticator app. I bet you know Google, and you probably know they have some good products out there. Google Authenticator is one of them.
Download the Google Authenticator app on your phone (iPhone, Android or Blackberry). Install this plugin on your site. After activating it and generating a secret key, you will be able to add the site to your app by scanning a QR code. That's it!
The QR code is generated with Google Charts API using HTTPS to avoid security issues while sending your secret for generation.
You're using Authy? Google Authenticator for WordPress is fully compatible with Authy. You can add the 2-steps authentication and use Authy to generate the one time password.
Requires: 3.0 or higher
