THE MOST UNIQUE TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION METHOD
This plugin gives you the ability to turn any file on your computer into a unique key which you will use to access the admin area.
The plugin only works using HTTPS!
- File is not downloaded or stored physically on the site.
- The plugin does not create additional security risks.
- Plugin code does not create additional load on the site.
- Intuitive interface.
- Provides the maximum level of protection against brute force attacks. Even if a hacker has access to your computer, it will be extremely difficult for him to guess which file is the key.
- Any file can be used as a key, for example: photo, video, text document, song, operating system system file, whatever…
- File size up to 1 GB.
- Limit Login Attempts.
- Disable XML-RPC.
Keep in mind that if you change the contents of the file selected as a key, you will not be able to access the admin area.
Where are the settings?
Settings are located in the edit section of your profile
What should I do if I have lost my key file?
If you are not an administrator.
Ask your site administrator to turn off two-factor authentication for your profile. After that, you will be able to log in using only your login and password, and then select a new file.
If you are administrator.
* Go to your website database.
* Find usermeta table.
* Find the row where ‘user_id’ = your user ID, and ‘meta_key’ = ‘senpai_software_2fa_status’.
* Change the value of the ‘meta_value’ field to ‘disable’.
* Now you can use only login and password, and then choose a new key file.
