Google Authenticator for your WordPress blog.
I am using this plugin on my blog youngplanner.com and it working perfect, way better security plugin than any other.
Plugins works fine with WP 3.9 and it is a great addition to my other login protection plugins "Captcha" and "Limit Login Attempts" + htaccess for the wp-admin section :)
Would be great if the plugin could have a verification funtion with the first generated code to see if it works (just like other websites) and add a "Backup Code" just in case you do not have the secret key at hands or access to FTP to disable it temporarily.
Very straight forward installation and account set up if you have done it before on another site (i.e. google itself, facebook, etc).
The trick I had was that I was using Gentoo linux and php installation requires "hash" use flag. Otherwise, it won't work.
It's a "must have" plugin. The only counterpart is that lacks of a feature to be toggled after the users makes login.
You can achieve this with another plugin: https://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-reviews/google-authenticator-per-user-prompt
PS: Wish the two authors fork the plugin into one.
We are using the plugin in both complex and simple projects and It works well. It's a no-brain setup if you are currently using Google Authenticator.
Thank you for the developer! :)
WP Market Reviews
Was a little quirky at first then realised had to log in and out to get settings per user.
Wondered if someone has thought about using this only for login ?
This is really useful security plugin.
I stumbled upon this plugin looking for ways to beef up my security on my sites. I found that it works great and is easy to customize certain things (wording). When asked about a possible future feature, Henrik worked on it and added it. Now available for all! I use this plugin on all my sites & am especially happy Henrik keeps it up-to-date! Keep up the good work & Thanks!!!
Works exactly as advertised.
