The two-factor authentication extension is an easy way to get more confidence about security and double protection of your Magento admin panel.

See how Two-Factor Authentification works

Magento 2 two factor authentication: secure login

Double your Admin panel security

Two-step authentication is a simple yet efficient way to enhance your protection. This presupposes that to access your account, you have to prove yourself in two different ways. Besides from usual login and password, your mobile device becomes a necessary component of your authentication.

Protect your business account against fraud

As more services require to log in, users become less attentive. One-factor verification may become an easy target for the key loggers and data sniffing. The 2-factor authentication extension offers you a trustworthy 2-level solution of the present-day verification method, used by key figures of the industry (e.g. Facebook, Google, etc).

Use Google Authenticator to generate additional security code

Google Authenticator app is a simple way to make your personal device a crucial element for accessing the Magento account. The app generates security codes every 30 seconds, so even if your login and password were hacked somehow, there is one more additional security OTP for login.

Include reliable IP addresses in the white list

To free some IP addresses (e.g. your company) from a double checkup, simply add these IP addresses to the white list in the backend settings.

Enable security code for particular admin roles individually

The Magento 2 Two-factor Authentication extension offers a possibility to configure each admin role individually. Enable additional code for each particular company person.

2FA Extension: mobile verification

NOTE! The extension is compatible with iPhone (iOS 3.1+), iPad, iPod touch, Android (1.5+) and BlackBerry (OS 4.5-6.0) smartphone.

Check if your device is able to run the Google Authenticator application before using the extension. This Google application generates additional security codes.

Magento 2 factor authentication

2-step verification is an extra layer of protection based on Google Authenticator or mobile device binding. The single-use 30-second code is apt to protect Magento 2 backend against cybercriminals. Powered by TOTP / HOTP algos, our 2FA plugin doubles your business data resistance against attacks.

Why Do You Need 2FA?

2FA is a new outline of your security measures that phasing out used-to-be protection measures largely due to the obvious pros:

  • an extra layer of user credentials/account protection;
  • decreased risks of unauthorized access/system breaches;
  • a wide variety of 2FA methods that suit the most discerning users: secret questions, pin codes sent to mobiles, pictures confirmations, more;
  • secure access to confidential business information.

As a result, by avoiding security issues you increase user satisfaction and loyalty to your brand.

To date, more than 90% of Gmail accounts don't use 2FA. This is largely due to Google democratic approach, you can’t simply force users unconditionally accept the two-step authentication. However, in 2018 we see people suffer from banal email hacking and e-commerce fraud.

What makes you think then that the problem won’t affect your business? Let’s take a guess, you may think you are only beginning to be an e-business, you may personally know all the employees, besides you have a small staff, who are easy to control. All these arguments don’t hold much water once your Admin account is hacked.

What is a Magento 2 authentication factor?

The factor is a credential that is used to verify an access legitimacy. They distinguish the next 2FA types:

  • knowledge (it’s based on a user's knowledge of something): This one is the most common method of authentication. They can be secret questions/characters/words/sentences/numeric combinations/etc.;
  • possession (it’s based on a user's possession of something): The method implies a secret key that is possessed by only one user. One of the most in-use examples is a security token (disconnected/connected/software/etc.);
  • inherence (it’s based on a user's biometric characteristics): They are user's fingerprints, face, voice, iris recognition, typing dynamic and others. The factor is justly considered as one of the safest.

Our Magento 2 factor authentication uses 30-second Google Authenticator code sent to your mobile device.

Magento 2 Step Authentication: Pros and Cons

  • increase of your Admin Panel security;
  • additional 30-second-life security password;

No issues, good extension
Double authentication is a popular security measure today. I can't say I ever faced a real attack. We implemented this extension only to ensure that our customers' data is safe. The installation was fast and easy so we didn't contact support, still based on experience with some other their extensions I can say that support is very strong here.

An easy module to improve security
Elaine Morrison
We used m1 Security Suite when had magento 1 store. After we migrated, we decided to purchase some Amasty security extensions including this 2fa. Overall, a simple module that is very fast to configure but does it job perfectly.
