Security 8 May , 2015
WordPress is becoming a part of our daily life these days, so using it from mobile phone is common.WordPress has not included 2-factor authentication in the core yet but there are WordPress plugins that will easily add this layer of security to your website.
Getting started is easy. You install the Clef plugin on your website (it is available in the official WordPress plugin repository) and download the Clef app on your mobile phone. The app is available for both iPhone and Android phones.
Clef will replace the default login screen of your WordPress website with an animation that resembles a moving wave. You scan this “wave” with the Clef app on your phone and voila! You are logged in instantly. You don’t have to remember passwords and this will even work if your phone is not connected to the Internet.
One more thing. You can use Clef to log into your WordPress website from the mobile browser as well. In this case, you don’t have to scan the “wave” but you’ll be automatically redirected to the Clef app on the phone and it will log you in. It can’t get any simpler than this.
And if you ever lose your mobile phone, you can also always deactivate your device by paying a visit to getclef.com/lost. Do not fret because you can still get into your Clef enabled WordPress website with the old school method – your username and password. Here are some Clef features
Unlike password-based solutions like Google Authenticator, Clef is two-factor that users love. With just a wave of their phone, they’re logged in to your site — it feels like magic.
Adding Clef to your site increases registration conversion by an average of 30% and eliminates forgotten passwords, making your users 45% more likely to return.
Every time a user logs in, they will be uniquely identified with their fingerprint using Apple’s Touch ID technology. With secure biometrics, you can trust that your users are who they say they are.
If a user’s device doesn’t support Touch ID, Clef securely falls back to a PIN on the device — there’s always a second-factor.
Clef runs on an RSA public-key architecture, technology that developers have been using to secure their logins for years. We let the phone handle the hard cryptography and give your users an experience they’ll love.
Two-factor has been on your timeline for months, but you can never spare the developer time. With Clef, you can be up and running with the best two-factor in the world in less than a day.
So clef is a good option these days to try because of its two-factor authentication from the future.
