WP Cerber Security 9.5.7

New feature: remembering users’ devices when using 2FA

When two-factor authentication is enabled, users can now optionally click a checkbox on the 2FA form to remember their devices for a predefined period of days. It’s displayed on the form as “Remember this device for N days?” This feature is configured on a per-role basis in the professional version of WP Cerber. You can specify a duration (in days) for which users’ devices can be remembered.

This feature is disabled by default. To enable it, specify a number of days greater than 0. An empty value or a zero will disable and hide the checkbox on the form. When it is enabled, it takes precedence over other 2FA settings.

Minor changes

  • Enhanced details about generated 2FA PIN codes on the user profile page.
  • The tabs labeled “Role-based” and “Global” are now renamed to “Role Policies” and “Global Policies” respectively.

Squashed bugs

  • The 2FA email address set on the user profile page is ignored when sending 2FA codes.
  • A fatal error occurs when using Cerber.Hub and switching to a managed website where automatic updates for WP Cerber were enabled. The error is logged as: “Call to undefined function wp_is_auto_update_enabled_for_type().”
