Remove Google Authenticator from Plesk web server via SSH


CentOS Web Server Plesk Admin Panel is protected by 2 factor authentication using Google Authenticator. After replacing/losing the phone you can no longer generate the requested verification code.


To resolve the issue you can remove Google Authenticator extension via SSH. Login to the server and run following command:

/usr/local/psa/bin/extension -u google-authenticator

Refresh the web page and Google Authenticator prompt should be gone.
