King of Ecommerce “Magento” is on the way to secure his CMS with two new add-ons of Google reCAPTCHA and Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) functionality. Previously this functionality is already available for both Magento 1 & Magento 2 Extensions via Third party extension developers like us.

“No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA” was introduced by Google back in 2014, to fight and protect the websites from Internet spam and abuse. Moreover, reCAPTCHA uses advanced algorithms to identify the difference between humans including Invisible reCAPTCHA. Also, “Two-Factor Authentication” comes from Google, to ensure secure access by entering the second password to verify authorized access.

Magento has added reCAPTCHA support Magento admin login and some of the store frontend CMS pages like a sign-up, sign-in, forgot password and contact form. Apart from that, Magento has also added support for software authentication apps and hardware authentication devices including Google Authenticator, Authy, U2F devices, and Duo Security to generate & verify access for 2FA.
