LAS VEGAS, Sept. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Nearly 25 percent of the Internet runs on WordPress, and now these sites can be more secure thanks to a free WordPress plugin available from LaunchKey, the leading mobile authentication platform. The plugin enables administrators to enhance their WordPress security and improve the login experience by leveraging their smartphone or tablet to log in and out of WordPress without the hassle or insecurity of their standard account password.
LaunchKey's plugin integrates seamlessly within the native WordPress login experience, and it's compatible with LaunchKey's new White Label SDK which enables administrators to leverage their own mobile app as the authenticator in place of LaunchKey's mobile app. The free plugin, which can be setup in less than five minutes, can be downloaded from the WordPress plugin directory at https://wordpress.org/plugins/launchkey/.
"LaunchKey not only can immunize a WordPress install against a password breach, it also makes it easier to log in and out by allowing users to utilize a variety of active and passive authentication factors on their mobile device like a fingerprint scan or geo-fence," said Geoff Sanders, CEO of LaunchKey. "The ability to permanently delete a user's WordPress password from the WordPress database is key. With no password in the WordPress database, attack vectors to steal user passwords such as through database injection, brute-forcing, key-logging and phishing are no longer valid."
LaunchKey makes it easy for users and application administrators to employ true multi-factor authentication (MFA) through a variety of authentication methods on their smartphone or mobile device.

Formed in July of 2012, LaunchKey is a next-generation authentication and authorization platform that removes the liability and insecurity of passwords by decentralizing authentication through mobile smartphones and tablets that people already own. Through a REST API and suite of developer tools, LaunchKey can secure virtually any online or offline application such as websites, mobile apps, kiosks, vehicles, industrial control systems, physical access control systems, smart locks, and more. In 2013, Inc. Magazine included the founders in its prestigious "30 Under 30" list. For more information, visit www.launchkey.com.
