Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » No notifications in Wordfence (firewall, email) when logging in via 2FA-plugins

  • Resolved sergeyf1



    When using 2FA plug-ins (Two-Factor and Two Factor Authentication) in Wordfence (in the “Firewall” – “Login Attempts”) information on the completed logins is NOT displayed. Also, Wordfence does not send an email notification of the logged in if it was executed via 2FA plugins.

    If authorization on the site occurs WITHOUT 2FA-plugins, then Wordfence correctly displays the information in the “Firewall” and sends an email notification.

    I tested Wordfence with these two 2FA plugins:
    – from WordPress core developers ( I like this plugin for 2FA the most.
    – and from the developers of the popular plugin for backup site (

    I have been using Wordfence on all my client sites for a long time. Now there is a need on several sites to use 2FA authentication. Only the indicated problem stops me.

    I will be grateful for your answer and help.

    Hey @sergeyf1,

    Thanks for sharing this. I’ll file a compatibility report and share this with the developers. I’ll be sure to add a link to this post in the report so we can update you when/if there’s any progress.

    In the meantime, you might try experimenting with other two-factor plugins. It’s definitely one of the best security measures you can take.
