    PIXEL CAFFEINE WARNING: By November 2nd, it will be mandatory to enable the Two-Factor Authentication in your Facebook account in order to connect to Facebook APIs. Please, be sure to enable the TFA in your account in order to continue to use the Pixel Caffeine features.

    That’s the message shown on the latest update by this plugin. Where’s the Facebook source for this requirement? I haven’t seen anything about this, and want to read more.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    the reference for this warning is here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/changelog/version8.0#catalog-api

    More precisely:

    
    The following Catalog API endpoints now respect two-factor authentication Business settings. Any app calling this endpoint will receive an error if the Business that has claimed the app requires two-factor authentication for the current app user.
    

    It’s referred only to Product Catalog, so it won’t be necessary if you don’t use it. Anyway, my suggestion is to enable it in order to avoid problems for the future also for the other features (custom audience above all), because it seems the Facebook’s intention is to force everyone to increment the security.

    However, it’s just a warning. You can ignore it if you want, but keeping it in mind when there should be any permission errors when using Product Catalog features or Custom Audiences 🙂

    Then, about the warning which doesn’t remove complained by @laniwa and @dynamic22, firstly make sure to give 1 or 2 seconds after you click into the X before to change page or refresh the page. If you won’t be able to remove it yet, try to add this little plugin I made which will delete the warning for you: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vbynxo138ejkz0w/pixel-caffeine-remove-2fa-warning.zip?dl=0

    Download the zip and upload it as a new plugin. Activate it and after activation, you shouldn’t see the warning anymore. After you can immediately deactivate it and delete it if you want because it just makes an operation to the DB to remove the flag which makes the warning active, so it won’t be necessary anymore.

    Let me know if it works.
    Thank you.

    Awesome! Glad to see you were able to remove the warning with the mini temporary plugin. This will be very useful for other users who will have the same issue! 🙂

    Facebook gives me a password for Pixel Caffeine in Two-Step Authentication + App Passwords:

    Your PIXEL CAFFEINE password:
    00000000
    Type the password in the PIXEL CAFFEINE password field. After that, you will no longer have to generate passwords for PIXEL CAFFEINE.

    Where do I enter the password in Pixel Caffeine please?

    Gracias !!!

    Hi,

    I’m not aware of any password field to be filled. Could you please share some screenshot for the page that is asking this and any other screenshot of the flow that lands to the error?

    Thank you.

    Hi.
    I get this message in Woocomerce:
    “PIXEL CAFFEINE WARNING: By November 2nd, it will be mandatory to enable the Two-Factor Authentication in your Facebook account in order to connect to Facebook APIs. Please, be sure to enable the TFA in your account in order to continue to use the Pixel Caffeine features. ”
    I’ve already done two-step authentication on Facebook and requested the password for Pixel Caffeine, giving me the following message:
    “Your PIXEL CAFFEINE password:
    000000000
    Type the password in the PIXEL CAFFEINE password field. After that, you no longer have to generate passwords for PIXEL CAFFEINE. ”
    Where do I put the password in Pixel Caffeine? Or how I have to proceed so that Pixel Caffeine continues to work. Thank you
