OTP Email MFA is a Multi-factor authentication plugin that sends a one-time password to a user's email providing an additional layer of security.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a security best practice that adds an extra layer of protection on top of a username and password combination. By requiring an additional authentication code from a trusted device, MFA safeguards access to a user’s account even if the password is compromised.
