Tip: Two-Factor Protect Your WordPress Site

Anyone the least bit concerned about online security, and we all should be, uses two-factor authentication for our online accounts. Yet often WordPress users forget about their most valuable asset — their WordPress site.

It is actually very easy to protect your WordPress site with two-factor authentication. All you need is the official Google Authenticator plugin.

Now you know I hate talking about plugins. But this is one that we all should have. It works with the Google Authenticator app you may already have on your phone for Gmail and such. It is easy to install and set up.

One thing that made me hesitate before was that it hadn’t been updated in a long time. But Google just updated it. And they even added the feature where it can be set up on a per-user basis. So you don’t have to bother logged-in reader-only accounts with it.
