Top 5 Plugins For Enabling 2 Step Authentication In WordPress

In general people use same same passwords across all social networks and other web accounts because remembering many usernames and passwords is not always easy for people who don’t spend much time on Internet. But this is risky because if in case one of your account’s password gets hacked or cracked, it can put your other accounts in danger. Other than strengthening your passwords you can increase your website’s security by enabling a two-step authentication so that if  any brute force or hacker cracks your username & password then still they will not be able to use it without a code or token, which in most cases connected to your smartphone device. Here are some good authentication plugins you can use in your WordPress site.
