How to temporarily disable 2FA on WordPress
There are cases in which you might need to temporarily disable two-factor authentication (2FA) without deactivating the WP 2FA plugin.
To do so, all you need to do is add the below directive to the wp-config.php file of your WordPress website.
define( ‘DISABLE_2FA_LOGIN‘, true ); )
You can add this directive anywhere in the wp-config.php file as long as it is above the /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy publishing. */ comment.
Enabling 2FA again
To enable back 2FA on your website change true to false in the above directive, or simply delete the directive.
