Keyy Two Factor Authentication: The Full Review

Keyy Two Factor Authentication

I still remember the excitement that I felt when I found out about Clef, the no-longer-available two factor authentication app that helped me get rid of the password that I use to login to News47ell’s admin dashboard. It was magical, but sadly, the excitement didn’t last for too long. Clef shut down and the team moved to join Twilio to work on Authy.

I was left with the same old, boring login method for my site.

Today, I get to be excited again thanks to the great people over at UpdraftPlus because they released their promised app they claim is going to be the heir of Clef.

Keyy two factor authentication, a brand new WordPress plugin, iOS & Android app by the developers of the popular WordPress backup plugin UpdraftPlus, is going to bring back the good old days of not having to enter that hard to remember password 1 every time I want to login to my admin dashboard.

Let’s dive right into my Keyy two factor authentication Review

Authy Two Factor Authentication for WordPress Plugin Review

Keeping your site secure is a very important thing to do because you don’t want anyone to just get an access to your site and mess things up for you that you’ve built over the years.

There’s many ways to do that, you can change the permalink to your login page, choose a strong password, delete the default “Admin” user, Password Protect wp-login.php and one of my favorite is to add Two Factor Authentication.

1Password 5.2 for iOS adds support for OTP and more

1Password is one of those apps that when you use you can’t let go of it, it just sticks with you and make you happy all the time, never disappoint.
The guys at AgileBits released 1Password 5.2 Codenamed The Awesomesauce Edition for iOS which add support for One-time password aka OTP for Pro users only.

In addition to OTP, 1Password now have an easier way to add new logins:

 we added our first-ever Login Creator, a really slick new tool that makes it easy, dare I even say fun, to add your existing Logins to 1Password and get a feel for how much time it can save you.

Until now my OTP app of choice is Authy, and the fact that 1Password Sync the OTP across devices is really great, but at the moment I’m still using an iPhone 4 with an iOS 7 so I don’t see my self switching all my OTPs to 1Password.

Authy review, a Google Authenticator App alternative!

Note from the Editor-in-Chief:

Authy brought a whole new experience for Two-Factor Authentication with a new Chrome Extension/App, make sure to read my full review about the new Authy Extension.

I’m sure a lot of people who really care about their privacy and securing their accounts in every possible way have Two-Factor Authentication enabled. A lot of online services these days are implementing this feature, and lately it was Buffer after a hack made users post spam on their twitter and Facebook feed, which made a lot of people angry, but Buffer was quick to fix this problem and add another layer of security by implementing Two-Factor Authentication to all users.
