Best 2FA Plugins for WordPress

I’ve been setting up two factor authentication for most of my logins lately, and even wrote about when and how to use 2FA on my blog.

One of the steps I took was to secure WP logins with 2FA, and the Two-Factor plugin by George Stephanis is the best plugin I found for that purpose.

It’s very easy to setup, all you need to do is to go to each user’s profile and select the 2FA settings you want to activate. I recommend using the Google Authenticator settings as you can also use 1Password for this purpose and it makes the process of logging in really easy while giving you a security boost at the same time.

    I have been using Two Factor pugin but my question is how can we use SMS verification with this or any other plugin? I found another resource here https://www.cloudways.com/blog/two-factor-authentication-plugins-wordpress/ which uses various two factor authentication WordPress plugins but still not clear. Cheers!
