Model:Adapter
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

Hello,

 

Does TP-Link offer the 2/multi-factor authentication for Kasa Plugs and Switch(es)? I own both types of these Kasa products and not sure how to turn the feature on.

 

Can someone please share information on how to turn it on using the app or on the web?

 

I'd be really surprised if they don't offer it, however, if this is not offered this day and age, here my feature request:

 

Request for the TP-Link Eng/Product team: Please implement Multifactor Authentication for Kasa products as soon as possible! It's a MUST. I own your competitors' (e.g. Wemo) switches, and most have already implemented it!

 

Thank you for your help and for listening to customers.

Announcing Two-Factor Authentication for Kasa Users

We have started to roll out two-factor authentication for our Kasa accounts. This means that, when enabled, a new device signing in with TP-Link ID will be asked to present a time sensitive verification code to protect your account from unauthorized access.

 

I have already created and published a new KB Article detailing how to Set up 2-Factor Authentication in the Kasa App. If you want to jump ahead and get registered, the instructions for sign up, if eligible, can be found here:

As a reminder, we are slowly rolling this feature out to our users by enabling the feature on your account in waves. The menu for Two Factory Authentication can already be found in the app, and will tell you if the feature has been enabled on your account yet.

Thank you for the feature request.

 

We currently do not have that feature available, but your request will be forwarded.
