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:
- Easy to pair your WordPress site with your Clef account using your phone’s camera.
- Easy to log in using your camera by scanning their uniquely designed barcode.
- Ability to hide login form, disable passwords and make Clef the only way to log in.
- Set up timed sessions.
- 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?
