Hi, I enabled Backend Protection and am using the secret key and I can login just fine. But I noticed that the secret key doesn't stay in the URL as I browse around the admin pages. Is this normal?

Yes, that's the expected behaviour. :)

Thanks Jose. I am using 2-factor in the backend so is this Backend Protection necessary in that circumstance?

You're welcome!

I recommended it to avoid brute force or dictionary attacks against the backend. Despite you are protected using the 2FA attackers can reach the backend if there is no restriction and flood your server with tons of queries.
