Enable 2FA for your website account

  1. Log in to Your Website
  2. Access Login Security:
    On the left side, find and click on “Login Security” in the admin menu.
  3. Choose and Configure 2FA:
    Install your preferred 2FA app, e.g. Google Authenticator, FreeOTP, and Authy, etc, on your mobile phone. Follow the on-screen instructions to set it up. When using an authenticator app, scan the QR code or enter the secret key.
  4. Backup Codes:
    Backup codes are for situations where you can’t use your primary 2FA method. Store them in a safe place.
  5. Verify and Save:
    Complete the setup by verifying your chosen 2FA method. This involves entering a code sent to your selected mobile app. Save your settings.
  6. Test 2FA:
    Log out of your WordPress account and log back in. Enter the 2FA code when prompted, along with your password.
  7. Done!
    Congratulations! Your account now has an essential added layer of security with 2-Factor Authentication.

Remember to keep your 2FA method secure and, if applicable, store any backup codes in a safe place. Your account is now better protected against unauthorised access.
