    Hello,

    Is it possible to set two step authentication for WHM/cPanel login ie after providing the password, it will send a verification code by means of SMS or an email to the contact email address set for the root or cpanel user and the login will get validated after providing that code.

    Is there any such plugin available or future development planning because it will help from unauthorized server or cpanel access.

    :confused:

    To add on to this I would like the SMS or Email but with the Delay of some SMS and Emails I've had where need to login to something immediately and takes like 30 minutes to get the email or text message so I prefer to have a app on my iPhone... So for my Google accounts and Microsoft accounts I use Google Authenticator so would be nice if cPanel could also use the Google Authenticator &/or came out with their very own cPanel Authenticator app :)
