You can enhance the security of our Plesk account by enabling two-factor authentication (2FA). You can set up Plesk 2FA by downloading the Google Authenticator application on a mobile device and by following these instructions.
How do you enable 2FA?
Log in to the Plesk control panel.
Navigate to "Websites & Domains" or "Verkkosivustot ja toimialueet" and click on the "Google Authenticator" link in the right-side panel. If you don't see the panel, click on the button in the upper right corner to expand the view.
Check the box for "Enable Multi-factor Authentication" or "Ota käyttöön moniosainen todennus" to see the full menu (below).
Open the Google Authenticator app on your mobile device and scan the QR code displayed in Plesk. If you're unable to use a QR code scanning app, you can configure 2FA manually by entering the information provided under the "Could not scan the barcode?" or "Eikö viivakoodin skannaus onnistunut?" section into the Google Authenticator app.
Enter the verification code provided by the Google Authenticator app into the "Verification Code" or "Tarkastuskoodi" field in Plesk. The code must be entered within 30 seconds as the app generates a new code after that time.
It is recommended to check the boxes for "Enable 'Remember Device' functionality" and "Pre-select 'Remember Device'".
Finally, click "OK" to enable two-factor authentication.
Reconfiguring Two-Factor Authentication
If you need to reconfigure two-factor authentication for any reason, you can follow the same steps as when you initially set it up. Reconfiguring 2FA will invalidate the previous configuration.
