Django Two-Factor Authentication


Build Status

Test Coverage


Complete Two-Factor Authentication for Django. Built on top of the one-time password framework django-otp and Django\'s built-in authentication framework django.contrib.auth for providing the easiest integration into most Django projects. Inspired by the user experience of Google\'s Two-Step Authentication, allowing users to authenticate through call, text messages (SMS), by using a token generator app like Google Authenticator or a YubiKey hardware token generator (optional).

If you run into problems, please file an issue on GitHub, or contribute to the project by forking the repository and sending some pull requests. The package is translated into English, Dutch and other languages. Please contribute your own language using Transifex.

Test drive this app through the example app. It demos most features except the Twilio integration. The example also includes django-user-sessions for providing Django sessions with a foreign key to the user. Although the package is optional, it improves account security control over django.contrib.sessions.

Compatible with supported Django and Python versions. At the moment of writing that includes 3.2, 4.0, 4.1, and 4.2 on Python 3.8, 3.9, 3.10 and 3.11. Documentation is available at readthedocs.io.


Refer to the installation instructions in the documentation.
