To get started with Multi-Factor Auth on Shifter log in to your account and navigate to your [Account] page.

In [Account] page, you’ll see a new panel for [Two-Factor Auth].

Toggle, that panel, and scroll up to the phone number area above. If you have not already added your contact number add it here and save when you’re done.

After you save, you’ll get a verification code via SMS. Once you get that code, type it into the new field to verify and complete the setup.

That’s it! The next time you log into Shifter you’ll get a text verification code which you can enter into the login form.
 

Note

If you're thinking to handle Shifter with API, never enable this feature; currently, it is irreconcilable with this MFA.

Login to Shifter dashboard

To get started with Multi-Factor Auth on Shifter log in to your account and navigate to your Account Settings.

Check that 2FA is Disabled

Before you make any changes to your account check that this feature is off. You wouldn't want to get locked out of you own account.

Check or Update your Contact Number

This step is crucial! Don't skip it. You need to be sure that your contact number is correct and you can access it. It will be your primary way to receive your auth code.

Verify your Auth Code

After you save, you’ll get a verification code via SMS. Once you get that code, type it into the new field to verify and complete the setup.

Enable Multi-Factor Auth

Now that your number is validated you can enable MFA.

Logout and log back in

Let's check MFA works on your account. Login with email/username and password as you normally would. After that you'll get a prompt for a unique auth code.

Welcome back!

You've now added an additional layer of security to your static WordPress sites on Shifter.
