What is WordPress Two-Factor Authentication?

WordPress two-factor authentication (or WordPress 2-step verification) adds an important extra layer of protection to your WordPress site’s login and admin area by requiring 1) a password and 2) a secondary time-sensitive code to login.

More about WordPress 2FA »

The time-sensitive code is generated via a two-factor authentication app, usually installed on your smartphone. We use Authy, but you can use any 2FA app.

(NB: If you are a client of Accurate Expressions, 2FA is most likely already enabled on your site so you can skip that bit at Step 2 of these instructions!)
