Add two-step authentication to WordPress

WordPress is a very popular platform, and I have had many WordPress installations over the years (even this site is based on it).
Being that popular has made this platform a target for many hackers. And even though it keeps updating and upgrading, over the years I found myself a victim of hostile takeovers.

In this article, I’ll discuss and demonstrate how to add two-step authentication as an extra level of security to your site or blog.


Monitor your online devices (Make sure they’re working as expected)

Motivation for this project

Every time I add a new device (IOT, server or other) to my home network, I want to make sure that I can rely on it to do its job and keep being connected.
When a device has a critical part to play in my home or office, I want to be alerted when it fails or if it disconnects from the network/internet.
