Authy

Red Pixel Studios uses Authy to authenticate logins to the WordPress admin. After you login with your username and password, Authy verifies you through your smartphone (or an app on your computer).

Lost Password

If you forget your password, do not guess. You will be locked out after five failed attempts.

To reset your password, click Lost your password? below the login module.

Configure Authy

The first time that you log in with your password you will be asked to enter your cellphone number to set up Authy.

Enter your phone number and click Enable.

You will receive a text message to your cellphone:

Two-Step Authentication was just configured for your Red Pixel Studios account. Install Authy at https://www.authy.com/install to get your security codes

Get the Authy App 

Click the link in the text message to get the Authy app from the App Store (iPhone) or Google Play (Android), OR visit https://www.authy.com/install on your phone.

Register Your App

Follow the steps on the App to register. Be sure to allow the app to send push notifications.

Meanwhile, your computer will display the screen below.

If you have already installed the app from the text message, enter the 7-digit code (Token) shown in your app into the field, and click Verify Token.

Subsequent Logins

Once you have the Authy app configured on your smartphone, you will receive a push notification after you login. 

You can use the Requests feature on the app to approve a login with a few taps. You do not have to type a code each time to authenticate.

Authy on your computer

Authy provides apps that run on your computer, giving you another way to authenticate a login besides your smartphone.

If you use the Chrome browser, you can get the Authy app from the Chrome Web Store.

Authy also offers stand-alone desktop apps for Windows and Mac.
