Review: Akeeba LoginGuard

We have taken a sneak peek at Akeeba LoginGuard for you, and made it into a video.

Akeeba LoginGuard is a Joomla add-on that will give your website new two-factor authentication tools. The tools lift the security of your website to the next level. Akeeba LoginGuard offers quite a few benefits over the already existing options in Joomla

More authentication options

Where Joomla offers ‘only’ OTP (one-time passwords) and Yubikey out of the box, LoginGuard takes things further. Which is a positive thing. While the options in Joomla are a good start, and Yubikeys are a great little things to use, it’s always good to have other options, especially in corporate settings.

LoginGuard offers the following options:

  • OTP (via an authenticator app)
  • Yubikey
  • Codes via e-mail
  • Codes via SMS (using SMSAPI.com)
  • Push notification (using PushBullet)
  • Fixed code(s)

Configure 2FA for users

Akeeba LoginGuard also allows you to setup 2FA options for your users. We discuss the upside of this feature and other features in our video review.
