Log in to Your WordPress Website Without Typing the Password Using Clef
Keeping the site safe with 2-factor authentication, you can now login to your WordPress website automatically without entering a username or password.
As is common knowledge, two-factor authentication is necessary to increase the security of WordPress websites. Once enabled, you will need a one-time password generated on your phone in order to log in to the website, in addition to your existing WordPress username and password. WordPress does not yet include 2-factor authentication in the core but there are WordPress plugins that will easily add this layer of protection to your website.
The only downside to adding 2-factor authentication is that you need to type some extra points on the login screen before you allow it. And if you have a bit of wordpress websites to manage, then it may be a little time consuming.
This week I searched Clef and it will completely change the way you log into your WordPress websites. With the establishment of the Clef, you can simply login to your website by hitting the mobile phone on the computer screen. Clef also secures your site with 2-factor authentication, but you do not have to type a username or password, nor will you have to wait for a token once.
It almost seems like magic. To understand how the clef works, see this small demo.
Automatically Log in to WordPress
It’s easy to start. You install the Cliff Plugin on your website (this is available in the official WordPress plugin repository) and download the Clef App on your mobile phone. The app is available for both phones and Android phones.
Clef will replace the default login screen of your WordPress website with an animation that resembles a moving wave. You scan this “Wave” with the Clay app on your phone and voice! You are logged in immediately. You do not have to remember the password and it will work even if your phone is not connected to the internet.
One more thing You can also use Clay to log in to your WordPress website from a mobile browser. In this case, you do not need to scan “wave” but you will be automatically redirected to the Cliff app on the phone and it will log you in. This can not be any easier than this.
And if you ever lose your mobile phone, you can always disable your device by paying a visit to getclef.com/lost. Do not worry because you can still go with your user name and password in the old school method in your Clef enabled WordPress website.
