Authentiq for WordPress-WSL The safe and easy passwordless alternative to two-step verification.

UPDATE: There is a standalone WordPress plugin by Authentiq now, check it out here.

We just released an integration for WordPress, enabling smooth and safe authentication for more than 25% of the web. Learn here how to set it up in minutes.

Who should use this?

There are many reasons to use Authentiq with WordPress, some important ones being:

  • You are looking for a safe 2FA solution that just works out of the box for everyone.
  • You like the convenience, but not the privacy aspects, of a social login button.
  • You were using the Clef solution, which was discontinued recently.

Built on the shoulders of the popular WordPress Social Login plugin, Authentiq on WordPress is super easy to try and works seamlessly next to other login providers.
