Works well
By , for WP 3.5.1

Works as advertised, no issues.

The only drawback is that - despite the tooltip - users are confused about the new field on the log-in screen. It doesn't even help to inform them in their sign-up emails (because after some weeks they forgot, or they use one login for a company, or they don't read the small print ...)

A great enhancement would therefore be to have the field by default hidden (reveal with checkbox) or to make it (like Google, Dropbox etc.) in two steps: only users who have GA enabled see the field for the code in the next step.

With all the hacking thats been going on. This is a must for any administrator!

Also false code helps to log in
By , for WP 3.5.1

The plugin is rather useless, if you can login with also a false Google code!!!!

I have tested it on a WP network installation, plugin network wide enabled and tried to log in to my network with my username/pass and - on purpose - a false Google code!
And: the login was successul!

Please fix this! Thanks.

Slightly confusing but excellent
By , for WP 3.5.1

Simply its great to have the extra level of authentication and its nice to see that the Plugin creator has been creating other similar authentication plugins.

I couldn't figure out how it worked initially. There's no settings associated with it, or anything to indicate what you should do. Eventually it becomes obvious that you have to enable it on a per-user basis. Each user has to log-in and activate it for themselves. It also doesn't give a very useful default title for the description - meaning everyone has to update that.

Great for security
By , for WP 3.5.1

Just giving 4 stars, because of:
* undocumented feature "use app password" - what does it do??
* I'd prefer a 2nd login page for the time based password, so unauthenticaed users dont see you're using this plugin.

Otherwise it is an excellent plugin which greatly enhances your security. Very much recommended!
