WP Cerber Security 8.3

In responding to new cybersecurity threats and risks, we continue to improve the intelligence of WP Cerber Security algorithms. Here is what you get with this version.

Two-Factor Authentication for WordPress

You can protect user accounts with two-factor authentication (2FA) in a couple of clicks. This feature provides an additional layer of security requiring a second factor of identification beyond just a username and password. When 2FA is enabled on a website, it requires a user to provide an additional verification code when signing into the website. Read more: How to enable two-factor authentication for WordPress.

Block registrations with unwanted email addresses

A couple of new settings for limiting email addresses that permitted to be used when a user registers on a WordPress powered website. You can specify email addresses, wildcards or REGEX patterns. To specify a domain, use the wildcard like *, to specify a domain zone: *.net. The new settings are located on the Global tab which is on the User Policies admin page.
