Support » Plugin: WP 2FA - Two-factor authentication for WordPress » The best 2FA plugin for WordPress

  • After evaluating four 2FA plugins for WordPress (including premium plugins), I must say this is the best one. It makes 2FA easy to enable for regular users and it follows the same setup and login flow as the “big players” such as Facebook and Twitter. The developer has even hinted on upcoming support for WebAuthn, e.g., Yubikeys (see support topic “support-for-yubikey”), which would take authentication security to the next level.

    There are some missing features that I would like to see in the future. The lack of these features doesn’t keep me from giving this excellent plugin five stars, since the plugin does exactly what it claims to do. Here are however the improvements I’d like to see.

    1. Embed a script for generating QR codes so that no external requests are needed (the plugin currently relies on chart[.]googleapis[.]com).
    2. Put the dialog boxes’ content in templates so that they can be overridden without modifying core files (or run the content through a filter).
    3. Add a checkbox to the login page so that users can enable “remember this browser” or “do not ask again for 90 days”.
    4. Consider adding a premium version so that we who rely on the plugin can fund the development and maintenance.

    Thank you very much for posting this review and for sharing your thoughts @karlemilnikka . Below please find our responses to the improvements you’re suggesting:

    1) Embed a script for generating QR codes: we have addressed this and will be available in the next update.

    2) Dialog box content: We have already added some more whitelabelling options that will be available in the next update.

    3) Remember device: This will also be available in the next update of the plugin

    4) Premium edition: Indeed, from the next update there will be a free and premium edition.

    We are still working out the details of which features will go in the premium edition and which will go in the free edition. However, what is there now in the free edition will remain in the free edition. We won’t take away any features and or functionality that we have already released with the free edition.

    We should be able to release the next update within the next few weeks. In the meantime, we are looking for beta testers. If you are interested in helping us test the next update of the plugin, please send us an email at info at wpwhitesecurity dot com.
