Multi factor authentication ( 2FA / MFA )

You can configure multiple WordPress 2FA methods like google authenticator, OTP over Email, OTP over SMS, etc, and choose any one method from a list of configured methods to use as 2FA for your WordPress website. Multi-factor authentication is helpful for cases such as when you do not have your phone and cannot access your TOTP app for login. You can then use other MFA methods like OTP over Email to login.

Check all the features other than MFA ( 2FA ) here: miniOrange Website.

Why do you need to register for Multi-Factor authentication?

Multi-Factor authentication uses miniOrange APIs to communicate between your WP website and miniOrange. To keep this communication secure, we ask you to register and assign API keys specific to your account. This way your account and users’ calls can only be accessed by API keys assigned to you.
Adding to this, you can also use the same account on multiple applications and your users do not have to maintain multiple accounts on WordPress 2FA like Google Authenticator. Single code generated in Google Authenticator will be enough to login to all sites. With this, you can also achieve sync of two factor authentication across multiple sites. This helps to provide a secure WP 2FA cloud solution.

How do I gain access to my website if I get locked out using multi-factor authentication?

You can obtain access to your website by one of the below options:

  1. If you have an additional administrator account whose Two Factor (2FA) is not enabled yet, you can login with it.
  2. If you had set up KBA questions earlier, you can use them as an alternate method to login to your website instead of 2FA.
  3. Rename the plugin from FTP — this disables the Two-Factor (2FA/TFA) plugin and you will be able to login with your WordPress username and password.

I understand that every developer needs to earn money and I an not against paying for quality plugins. The problem with this company (Min Orange) are several as follows: — disingenuous: instead of being helpful, they want to charge for everything — free plugins in WP are all muddled up — many of them doing similar things — very confused. — Obfuscated code in the premium plugins. — Refusal to provide a refund (because I don’t want to hire them to do custom work) In other words — they just want your money. The main problem is when I purchased their premium plugin (approx. $100) the code was obfuscated and as a developer — how on earth are we supposed to be able to modify it or customise it (as we would like to do)? Their reply was «you have to hire us». Well, sorry no! Obfuscated code is 1) Dangerous as you can’t see what’s in there. 2) Outrageous when buying into a GPL based code base I asked for a refund and they refused. Now I am going through my bank to have them return the visa payment Avoid this company

My team wanted to use and I did the payment for the tool, in the end it was more expensive then the amount on the website. After 1 day, my team decided that this plugin was not required anymore. Talking back with MiniOrange/xecurify they told me that was not possible to cancel and refund, so they keep the money for 1 year and in 1 day was decided that we will not use. Terrible company, they don’t care about customers. Be aware. I will never use any other product from this company in the future.

It comes with many customizable features besides the plugin. The developer team intervenes quickly and effectively to solve your problem. Support services work great. I would like to especially thank Ganesh and Mayur for helping me solve the problems. A.Recai

I’ve been using this plugin for over a year to integrate with an external identity service. It works well out of the box and in the basic form, but it is also highly customizable in the paid version which allows for numerous other features. Support is also very helpful and they are open to feedback when things don’t work as needed or expected. I highly recommend it for others looking to centralize & strengthen their Wordpress authentication.

this guys are doing very well. i am using the wordpress 4.5.3. the pluggin guided me through the two functionalities i activated: a)brute force protection and b)google recaptcha. i have to say that i was completely new on this, and didn’t know what this «recaptcha» was. for my surprise, it was very easy to setup. i believe it is working fine (i didn’t try to hack my own website yet). if you want to check how it works you can try to login on my website: howtoplayspanishguitar.com/wp-login let me know your thoughts! what makes this plugging really amazing are the people that developed this plugging. i installed it yesterday and today i received the following and amazing email: thanks for downloading our limit login attempts plugin. did you find everything you were looking for? i can help you setup the plugin, free of cost and i will be happy to configure it for you for maximum protection. we are the best in the industry when it comes to login protection, brute force protection, 2 factor authentication etc. i would be happy to setup a goto meeting and take you over the configuration? would you like that? my reply below: (..) i found the setup simple. however, if you can have a look at my configuration settings to confirm that i am using the plugin at it fullest potential, that would be much appreciated! there are four things i would like to mention which is a bit confusing: 1) it seems that you, as a company, offer very similar pluggings all based on protection and security: i am not sure if i should install more of your pluggings or if with this one is enough for me to be well protected. 2) is this plugging compatible with «wps hide login»? [answer: yes, it is] 3)are all these ones also compatible with your google authenticator two factor authentication? [answer: yes, it is] 4) do you offer an all-in-one plugging that gathers all these functionalities in one plugin only? [answer: yes, it is «brute force login security, spam protection & limit login attempts»] i am glad of be part of the first group of people installing it. a very big well done. best!!!! just to let you all know, by the time i am writing this comment, i received the answers to the questions i sent them. i added all the [answers] above. i would recommend this plugging to everyone. best!
