I've just in stalled magento 2.4.0 and trying to log into the admin area.

it returns a message telling me I have to set up two factor authentication and that I've been set an email.

You need to configure Two-Factor Authorization in order to proceed to your store's admin area

An E-mail was sent to you with further instructions

I've checked every email I have and there is no email.

this is on a live server

Please disable Magento_TwoFactorAuth module

php bin/magento module:disable Magento_TwoFactorAuth

php bin/magento s:up

php bin/magento c:c


Into Magento_root/app/etc/config.php find Magento_TwoFactorAuth and put 1 to 0 like this then save the file and run php bin/magento s:up command.

'Magento_TwoFactorAuth' => 0,

I Hope This Helps You.

  • is there no way of doing it without using command line? I just want to log into the backend for the first time
