How to enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) – Magento 2 Tutorial
IMPORTANT: Ensure you check the article for the steps, as I missed on in the video
One of the critical security issues that have followed Magento Open Source 2.2 all the way back from Magento Community 1 is the potential for brute force attacks on the Admin login page. There are a few tricks you can use to avoid this attack (as I mentioned in my 25 Ultimate Security Checks video I released last year). However, Two-Factor Authentication was never possible unless you went to a 3rd party developer.
But as of last week, Magento officially announced the support of Two-Factor Authentication in collaboration with one of their partners. At this time, Two-Factor Authentication can be installed only from the command line. However, in this video I’ll show you how to do just that.
