This is an excellent two-factor authentication solution for WordPress, and nothing could ever beat free. I use it on my own sites. Thank you Clef!

However, you'll have to know of 2 caveats (free comes at the price):

  1. There's no session control. You can log into all of your Clef-controlled sites (including Facebook, through Chrome extension), but only from one browser. In their own words, "Clef's SSO works on one browser session at a time. Syncing sessions across multiple computers and possibly even multiple browsers is on the development roadmap but likely still a ways off until production."
  2. WordPress version, when installed as a total login replacement, doesn't really replace login form. Oh, it does, but only for us humans. Malicious scripts will continue kicking on your real login form trying to guess your username (admin, of course) and password (watzit, sex? god? 123?))… So by all means, use Clef – but also install a good security system.

PS: Their login window are quite ugly when laid over WP 4.1.*'s default login form, so you'll need some additional styling ;)

Clef makes security easy!
By , for WP 4.1

I use Clef with the iOS app. It is a seamless combination.

First of all this plugin is very simple to install. I really like the feature of providing an hidden override URL (in case my phone is not working). Plus the other plugin options are explained well and easy to select.

I also used their recommended security check-list on their blog to further secure my WP install when first setting up my site.

I have emailed their support and found them to be extremely helpful.

This will be a standard plugin on all WordPress installs.

Job well done!

Great Plugin

Nice Concept with a great execution. Simply Superb :)

great way to safely log in
By , for WP 4.1

I recently gave clef a shot on a new WP build and have to say I love it. It relies on having your smartphone available and offers time control for log ins.

My one issue is having clef installed on an additional sites. I am unable to log in to a different site with clef when logged in on another. It could be me, but I have to log out of one to log into the other using the app. It does offer a safe url pass if you want to type pw manually. I would prefer ability to manage multiple logins through app.

But overall happy with app and customer service. The clef team is great.

FINALLY!!! Awesome security for websites
By , for WP 4.1

I have been in the IT industry for over 20 years and until now, there has not been any credible security plugins for what I consider every day users. When I discovered this app I was ECSTATIC!! This plugin offers the same levels of security that large corporations utilize in keeping their intranets safe from the outside world. Since discovering this I have implemented it on all my websites as well as daily logins to places like amazon, ebay, paypal etc. For a free plugin with better than corporate level security is a WIN WIN for us wordpress users!! THANK YOU for finally making my outside endeavours as secure as my corporate ones.

Clef is sweet

This plugin makes security a breeze

I installed it on a dozen WordPress sites and it works great. Amazing security solution. Highly recommend.

I am a pro subscriber now - $19/mo for unlimited sites is a steal for the great product / value that CLEF is.

Great support and app
By , for WP 4.1

I actually never write a review of a plugin or theme, cause most times I am too lazy for this..

But now I just had to.. After I installed the CLEF plugin on my WordPress website I got a email from one of the support employees. They asked if i was happy, if it worked like i expected etc..

I replied, is this a auto bot message, cause I didn't believe it. Well, it was not haha :)

Oke about the plugin, it works just great and it's blazing fast. I use the Iphone app to connect and disabled the password login, safe like .... :-)

Keep up the good work and the support, made me happy! ^^

Love it - by itself.

So far, this is working great for managing login on multiple sites. I also am trying the browser plugin for Chrome, and I'm a little less excited about the way that interacts with some things.

Lots of premium plugins require a login, at least once, in the WordPress backend, to make them work, and Clef/Waltz isn't real sure, so far, how to handle that. I've generally had to disable it and do that login manually.

In all, though, great stuff.
