Configure Joomla Two-factor Authentication ( LastPass-Authenticator )[edit]

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) also called two-step verification, is a security process in which a user has to pass two different authentication methods to gain access to an account or a computer system. First factor is the basic thing you know: username and password, and the second factor is what you might have as unique as a (Smartphone, security token, biometric) to approve authentication requests.

The Joomla 2-factor Authentication (2FA/MFA) plugin will add a second layer of authentication to your Joomla account to increase the security of your site from unwanted hacks and unauthorized login attempts.

Passwordless Authentication[edit]

Avoid the hassle of remembering passwords and risk of losing credentials by using Passwordless authentication. Passwordless connections allow users to log in without the need to remember a password. Users can just enter the username and pass the Two-factor authentication - 2FA by entering OTP or via push notifications to login to the application. This gives an individual an easy and convenient way to sign in and access data from anywhere. Also, Passwords are a major vulnerability as users reuse passwords and are able to share them with others.
