[Defender] Defender Plugin Problem.

After Install Defender, My WordPress admin panel stuck in wp-admin/profile.php#show2AuthActivator page. Can not go anywhere.

(In addition , Barcode in Google Authentication is not working)

However, After I removed wp-defender from ftp. It's being normal.

Please help. It would be appreciate that. Thank you.

    Hi Varisa,

    Sorry to hear about the issue. However, this is something which I’m not able to replicate in my side. Could I know further about the steps to replicate the issue?

    Does it occur once you click the “Enable” button for 2 Factor Authentication in user profile page, or it occurs after it’s configured?

    Could you please share your sites login credentials, so that we could give a closer look, and see what’s causing the issue?

    Hello Varisa

    Thanks for sending login details. I have just tested and 2FA was verified for me without any issue. Here is a screenshot:

    Would you please try to scan again? Make sure you take the phone very close to the monitor and focus correctly. The code seems a bit smaller and need proper focusing.

    Let us know how it goes. Have a nice day!
