Support » Plugin: Keyy Two Factor Authentication (like Clef) » Keyy not logging out automatically

  • I have just checked my website this morning, to find I could get straight in, no log in required. There doesn’t seem to be any form of automatic log out with key, which means I will have to remember to do it myself, which is not easy to remember when multitasking. Is there a way of setting this up?

  • Hi,

    This isn’t currently possible with the current version of Keyy.

    I will add this to our development list and should be out in a future release.

    Best Wishes,


    @robingoodlad What kind of thing do you have in mind? Can you describe more of how it would work?

    N.B. If you don’t tick the ‘remember me’ box on the WordPress login form, then your login session will end after 2 days. There are plugins that can change that; e.g. – is that the sort of thing you’re looking for?

    It would be good if automatic Log-Out worked similar to Clef used to. So that you could set a time limit, 1,2,3 hours etc. after which it would log you out automatically. Great to see an app to replace Clef btw.

    I second this request.

    One of the nicest features of Clef was the automatic logout where you could set the time. Also liked how it would send a notification to your phone 5 minutes before it would log you out, in case you needed to extend your session.

    Was the time set via being asked on the phone, or on the WP dashboard? (And which is the best way?).


    David: The time was set on the phone app. It was a hour/min scroll timer, which you could add time to if needed at any point by opening the app. It would send an alert 5 minutes before you got booted. I’d often set it for 8-10 hours for convenience while working in multiple sites.

    You could also set the logoff time to infinity – meaning it never logged you out automatically.

    Having it in the phone allowed ALL the different sites you were jumping between to stay logged in vs. limiting this functionality to a per site basis. That is, it scales nicer for web developers. Clef would log you out of everything once the timer expired.
