John

To start off I have a couple plugins that I have yet to use but thought you might want to know they exist. Keep in mind the ratings are based off the descriptions on their site and using their demo if available.

UNLOQ Two Factor Authentication

https://wordpress.org/plugins/unloq/

Version:2.1.23
Requires:3.5 or higher
Compatible up to:4.9.10
Released:10 August 2015

What they say about it:
The UNLOQ Two Factor Authentication Plugin secures WordPress user accounts from credential related risks such as phishing, password reuse or keylogger attacks. Setting everything up has never been easier, as it all takes under one minute. Even though sometimes two factor authentication sounds like a burden for average users, UNLOQ makes everything simpler and more secure, with the help of its authentication through push notifications, straight on the user’s device. To make authentication easier, if you manage more websites, you can also enable single sign-on.

Login can be made using Password-only authentication, just UNLOQ, or Password and UNLOQ as a second factor. If you choose to login using just ONLOQ or Password and UNLOQ as a second factor, authentication can be done through Push notifications, Time-based one time password, or Email. All these secure authentication options offer you a great flexibility in deciding how to authenticate your users, as well as more control over who is able to authenticate and how, making other login plugins unnecessary.

Enhancing full login page customization, the UNLOQ plugin replaces traditional customization plugins, and combines it with best in class security. User management can be done exclusively from the WP dashboard, in the UNLOQ menu. You are able to add, invite or remove users.

Features list:
– 60 seconds setup: installing the plugin takes no more than 1 minute
– Multiple login options: can be used to login with UNLOQ only, UNLOQ as a second factor, or Password only
– Fully customizable: allows login page customization
– Replaces the WP login and registration: handles both registration and login
– Custom login URL: allows setting the authentication URL
– Shortcodes feature: with the help of shortcodes, it allows more elements to be added to the authentication page

Push Monkey Pro – Web Push Notifications and WooCommerce Abandoned Cart

https://wordpress.org/plugins/push-monkey-desktop-push-notifications/

Version:2.2.3
Requires:4.8 or higher
Compatible up to:5.2.2
Released:05 November 2014

What they say about it:
Send push notifications directly to your readers’ mobiles and desktops when new content is fresh from the oven.

Why Push Monkey?

Increased Engagement
Readers can be informed about your content at all times: when reading other websites or while working in other apps, with the browser closed. Even when the computer is not active – it displays all missed notifications the moment it wakes up. For Chrome, notifications can also include an image.

Native
Your readers don’t have to install any additional apps or plugins. They just accept receiving notifications from your website and presto!

Granular Filtering
Easily decide and control for what type of content to send out notifications. Filter by custom post type and by category for standard posts. No content clutter around here!

Segmentation & Geolocation
Define segments of interest for your subscribers. This will allow you to know what your subscribers are interested in and where they are from so you can provide relevant notifications.

Automatic
By default, push notifications are sent automatically when you publish a new post. This workflow doesn’t sound cool? No worries, we have a more granular filtering and custom push notifications.

Statistics
The plugin provides essential usage and engagement data available directly in your WordPress dashboard so you can create the best experience for your subscribers.

Super fast setup. Zero coding required
Fast and easy to set up and no coding or API configuration required. The monkeys do all the pushing so you can focus on your content and readers.

WooCommerce Integration
Remind your visitors about abandoned carts with our WooCommerce integration.

No Monkey Business
Sending notifications on a big and reliable scale is not trivial, but our solid high-availability cloud back-end has already delivered millions of notifications…and it’s not stopping here.
