Is it possible to do two-factor authentication with the FF User Registration plugin?

Specifically as related to registering? Or do you mean after registering and then logging on thereafter?

You can create a type of 2FA on the registration form that prior to registering they have to pull a code from their email or text if you have twilio enabled and configured. I have done this before to cut down on spam registrations.

However this will not extend to the login process using only FF.

As Bobby indicated there are several WP 2FA plugins that work well.

Thats good to know but not my intent. I want 2FA for user login.

No. After registration you will need to use a third-party plugin to pass MFA.

<p>ok. I'll look into that. Can the 2FA plugin be combined with the FF User Registration where I can continue to use the FF User Registration? If so, any recommendations on 2FA plugins?</p>

2FA should be the login experience, not the registration experience, IMO. You should be able to use registration as you always have.

The free version of WMPU defender has 2FA with an authenticator app. https://wpmudev.com/blog/defender-two-factor-authentication/
