How often do you forget your password? If you’re like the rest of us, it seems like it happens every other minute.
Passwords are one of the worst parts of the web. They are a constant blockade between where we are and where we need to be, they waste billions of dollars worth of time every year, and creating a new one feels worse than cleaning a toilet. On top of all that, we have to remember more than 25 of them!
The problem is, human brains aren’t built to store random combinations of letters and numbers, so more often than not our passwords don’t even protect us. The WordPress security team lists passwords as the weakest link the security of anything you do online and literally hundreds of thousands of sites are hacked every year, many by attackers breaking weak passwords.
With Clef, you hold up your phone once and you’re instantly—and securely—logged in to all of your sites on any computer. It feels a little bit like magic.
After your first sync, you can log in to every Clef-connected site with just one click. Then, when you click the logout button on your phone, you’re instantly logged out everywhere. Passwords stop blocking your way and you can get on with your day.
The plugin uses two-factor authentication and builds on secure asymmetric cryptography, that would take computers billions of years to crack. Plus, it uses a distributed architecture, which means that even if a hacker did access their database, there would be no passwords to steal—they’d be no closer to hacking your site!
Clef’s plugin for WordPress takes less than a minute to install and setup — go protect your site today!
