    I need to hand over a website to a client. I thereby have to change the main email address to the clients email. For this change to happen, the client needs to login to the WordPress. To do so, I need to reset the 2 way authentication so the client can have it in his Google Authenticator app.

    How would I go about this? Is there no “reset Two-Factor”?

  • Hi @alframe,

    I think you can solve that situation by temporarily disabling 2FA, let the client login (just username/password required), enable 2FA and then have the client configure 2FA from his/her user profile.

    To temporarily disable 2FA add the line below to the wp-config.php file:

    define('ITSEC_DISABLE_TWO_FACTOR', true);

    Remove the added line (or prefix it with // to make it a comment) to reenable 2FA.

    Thanks for the tips. I disabled it in the UI and I sent the client instructions to set it up again.

    Let’s hope that works for him.
