Plesk 2 factor authentication

Plesk comes with a number of features that allow you to log into the control panel without using a password.

The two-factor authentication scheme is facilitated by the Google Authenticator extension.

To make use of it you need to install the Google Authenticator application on your Android or iOS smartphone.

Today, let us see the steps followed by our Support techs to enable it:

  1. Firstly, to enable this authentication, log into Plesk
  2. Then, in “Websites & Domains“, click on “Google Authenticator“
  3. Next, check the box “Activer l’authentification multifacteur“
  4. To configure the extension, first scan the QR code with your smartphone:
  5. Then, you will receive a verification code, put it in the “verification Code” field
    – The “remember device in days” function allows your browser to keep your “Google Authenticator” authentication information for a certain number of days (Example: 30 days).
    – Click on “OK” to confirm the activation.
  6. Finally, when you try to log into your Plesk account, you will prompt to enter a verification code.
Refer to the “Google Authenticator” application that you have installed on your phone to obtain the code.
