How to enable two-factor authentication in WordPress

Last updated December 6th, 2023 06:31

If you want to secure your access to the administration interface with multiple elements, one way to contribute to greater security is also through two-factor authentication. With this feature, after entering your login and password, you will not be taken directly to the administration interface, but instead prompted to enter a second code, usually generated by an external application. For this purpose, you can use, for example, the Google Authenticator app. But how to enable two-factor authentication in WordPress?

Furthermore, to enable this feature, a plugin is required to perform the two-factor authentication itself. Personally, I use the Wordfence plugin for these purposes.

To enable two-factor authentication, follow these steps in the Wordfence plugin:

  1. In the WordPress administration, click on the Plugins section, find the Wordfence plugin, and install it.
  2. After activating the plugin, a separate item for Wordfence will appear. Click on it.
  3. From the Wordfence menu in the left menu, select Login security.
  4. On your mobile phone, turn on the Google Authenticator app and scan the QR code.
  5. The Google Authenticator app will generate a six-digit code, which you then enter in the field with the text “Enter the code from your authenticator app below to verify and activate two-factor authentication for this account.
  6. To complete the process, activate everything with the “Activate” button.”
