We are excited to announce that we have finally launched our Two-Factor-Authentication plugin! You can use 2FA on any of your LimeSurvey instances hosted with us. Please let us know what are your thoughts about it.

Please note that the plugin is not yet part of LimeSurvey Community Edition. Therefore, please create a free account on limesurvey.org to try it. The 2FA plugin will be part of the Community Edition in one of the upcoming releases! So, stay tuned!

To activate this plugin, please check the following article: www.limesurvey.org/about-us/blog/2163-en...uthentication-plugin

I have a university user who is interested in having this plugin available to their locally hosted instance.

Is this plugin available for self-hosted LS instances?

Not yet released.

As stated in the announcement it is planned to be part of the Community edition too.

The 2FA plugin will be part of the Community Edition in one of the upcoming releases!

Hello blocka. If you have premium, you can find it here: www.limesurvey.org/limestore (the same one we use on our LS instances)

I am indeed a Premium member -- thanks so much, I hadn't even thought to look in the store!

Is the statement still valid? Part of the Community edition is not the case at the moment.
E.g. the LimeStore premium plugin has to be downloaded and installed. ComfortUpdate is not updating the plugin.

Hey @jelo. Yes, the statement is still valid. We will need to discuss in the near future when it will become part of CE.


And thanks for providing extra clarifications about the usage of the plugin.

The implementation of this plugin is fantastic! I've tested with Google Authenticator only at this point, but if the other methods work as well, it will be super to have this released to CE !

I have a suggestion:

I have noted is that if I set Force 2FA to Yes in the plugin settings, then on the login page, I still see "AuthKey (optional)"...

It might make sense to remove the text "(optional)" since if a user has enabled 2FA for their account, this is no longer true and AuthKey is mandatory for them.

Else maybe:

1) have login page show username + password, and then when user clicks on click "Login", check to see if they have 2FA enabled, and if so, display the AuthKey request their code.


2) Or (slicker) after completing and exiting username field, do AJAX call to see if 2FA enabled for that user account, and then reveal password and AuthKey field if required.

Hey thank you for your review.
I'm the original author of the 2FA plugin.

Of course the (optional) should be removed in case that the 2fa is forced. I will see to make that happen as quickly as possible.

It is quite hard to get the 2-parted authentication smoothly looking via the limesurvey internal login system. We went for a stable and secure integration rather than for something that is visually pleasing in the first draft.
For a second refactoring I will try to add the "second stage" login as you've described here.

Thanks for considering the suggestion Markus!

Another thought is it would be more logical (I think) if instead of having the 2-Factor-Settings in the 1st level of the top right menu, it was instead located in the same sub-menu as the My Account and Logout
