Unable to log in with the Android app when using the Two Factor plugin for 2FA

  1. I have installed and set up the 'Two Factor' plugin on my self-hosted instance of Wordpress (5.4.1). I have also installed the 'Application Passwords' plugin and generated an application password to use in the Wordpress Android app.

    However, in this setup, I am unable to log in to my site either with my actual password or the application password. The application complains that the credentials are incorrect. However, if I disable 2FA on my site, the app is able to log in without any issues.

    What could be the issue here and how can I resolve it?

  2. Hi there!

    It sounds like the plugin being used isn't compatible with the login through the app.

    Have you considered connecting your site to a WordPress.com account through the Jetpack plugin? You can then set up Two-Factor authentication on your WordPress.com account which will work when you try to log into the app.

    Let me know if you have any questions about this.
