This extension helps to protect your Magento store admin panel from an unauthorized access by enabling one more step of authentication: a security code sent to your phone. A new code is generated every 30 seconds which makes any data sniffing attempts unsuccessful.

Usage of two-factor authentication is an established practice which is even recommended by Google.

The module is compatible with iPhone (iOS 3.1+), iPad, iPod touch, Android (1.5+) and BlackBerry (OS 4.5-6.0) smartphone. Before buying this Two-Factor authentication extension, please make sure Google Authenticator application works on your device.


How two-factor authentication works

Each time you want to log into your Magento store, you need to enter the password and a special temporary security code which is sent to your phone. Thus, chances of data sniffing, key logging or any other unauthorized login attempts decrease significantly.

High security level is achieved due to the following factors:

  • your security code changes every 30 seconds;
  • each security code is unique;
  • any security code can be used only once.


Advanced settings

This Two-Factor Authentication module for Magento has advanced features that will give you some flexibility.

  • Whitelist IP-addresses

There is an IP White List field where you can specify those IP addresses that won’t need any code for login. For example, you can set your office IP as trusted, so anyone working in the office will not have to enter the code.

  • Specify authentication requirements for admin users

There is an option to give some admin users a possibility to login only with the password, while others will need both: their password and a special security code. So that the latter can use even unsecured connections, while the former can use only secured ones.
