    I am the single user and the administrator of the website.

    I was sucessfully receiving the code by email but now I’m locked out:

    “Your user account has been locked because you have not configured 2FA within the grace period. Please contact the website administrator to unlock your user and you can configure 2FA.”

    So we have to erros here:
    1) I had activated the 2FA for the user
    2) I am the admin

    So what now? How to hard reset this?

    I found a way.

    For future reference:

    In the WP options Mysql table I extendend the ‘wp_2fa_grace_period_expiry’ period (by adding some zeros) and set both ‘wp_2fa_user_grace_period_expired’ and ‘wp_2fa_locked_account_notification’ to 0 (zero). So I could log in again.

    But there are still the issues with the plugin as listed above.

    Hello, @robert681, thanks for answering.

    I would be glad to help but I sincerely don’t know if I would be able to reproduce the problem for further investigation.

    Maybe – just maybe – I had it with auto update activated and it reseted the grace period? I don’t log everyday.
