Disadvantages of having Google Authenticator Enabled on WordPress blogs
It has been quite a long time I am using the two-way authentication WordPress plugin from Google. It is good for protecting the WordPress as a security addon but it has its own disadvantages.
Major Disadvantage: If you like to blog using WordPress apps for iOS or Android then beware. You won’t be able to log in to your account if two-way authentication is active/enabled. Strange bug. Even if XML-RPC is enabled.
I tried to write a post using WordPress for iPad today but couldn’t even log in using my credentials. Yes I have two-way authentication enabled and I wrote my app specific password.
Now I have two options until Google releases the bug free plugin. Either I write the posts on my laptops or disable the two way verification.
Dear Google, I don’t want to disable the awesome and secure two-way verification plugin but I also want to use WordPress on my iPad and other devices.
