Transitioning away from Clef for two-factor authentication

This is a guide to help users transition from Clef to other forms of two-factor authentication. To best help you make the transition, please select how you use Clef:

I log in with Clef using the Clef plugin on a WordPress site

If you're using WordPress and Clef, transitioning to another form of two-factor authentication is easy! This guide will walk you through uninstalling the Clef plugin and installing the Authy plugin or Google Authenticator through Jetpack or Wordfence.

1
Log in to your WordPress site
2
Navigate to the Plugins section of your WordPress dashboard
3
Deactivate the the Clef plugin.
4
Delete the the Clef plugin.
5
Follow one of these guides for setting up two-factor authentication with another plugin:
1.  Two-Factor
2.  Authy
3.  Google Authenticator

If you do not have access to the Plugins section of your WordPress site, please send this guide to your WordPress administrator.

I log in with Clef on a non-WordPress site

If your site is not a WordPress site, to switch away from Clef you simply need to disable Clef on your account and activate a second form of two-factor authentication.

Because every site is different, we can't give detailed instructions on how to change these settings, but we recommend looking for the Security section of your Account Settings.

I am a developer who has integrated Clef using the Clef API

To transition away from Clef as a developer, you need to three primary things:

  1. Integrate an alternate form of two-factor authentication on your website or app
  2. Advise your users that Clef support will be ending on your website
  3. Disable your Clef integration
