What is WP 2FA?
2FA, short for two-factor authentication, adds a secondary authentication layer to improve WordPress access security. Big-name companies such as Google and Microsoft are making 2FA mandatory for all their users, and you can too, thanks to WP 2FA.
When using 2FA for WordPress, users logging in to your site have to authenticate using two factors instead of just the usual username and password. WP 2FA offers a number of different options, ensuring all users can secure their accounts with 2FA.
When installing WP 2FA and enabling two-factor authentication for your and your users’ accounts, you mitigate risks associated with password theft and unauthorized access while complying with industry standards and regulations.
