UpdraftPlus Working on a Clef Alternative Called Keyy

Clef Alternative

The people over at UpdraftPlus have been hard at work making a Clef alternative. For those of you who don’t know what Clef is, it was one of the best, coolest and most innovative two-factor authentication apps that I have ever seen in my life.

With its blue signature bar-code, Clef managed to become the favorite two-factor authentication app amongst many people in the WordPress community because of the following reasons:

  1. Easy to pair your WordPress site with your Clef account using your phone’s camera.
  2. Easy to log in using your camera by scanning their uniquely designed barcode.
  3. Ability to hide login form, disable passwords and make Clef the only way to log in.
  4. Set up timed sessions.
  5. Sign out of your WordPress site from the app.

Now that it’s gone, people are looking for an alternative. There’s one company out there that dared to make a Clef alternative and that company is called UpdraftPlus.

So let’s take a look, who are they? What do they do? And how are they going to make a Clef alternative that is worth using?

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.
