Authy brings the future of two-factor authentication to the convenience of your iPhone or iPad.
The Authy app generates secure 2 step verification tokens on your device. It help’s you protect your account from hackers and hijackers by adding an additional layer of security.
Why Authy is the best multi factor authentication app:
- Secure Cloud Backups:
Did you lose your device and got locked out of all of your accounts? Authy provides secure cloud encrypted backups so you will never lose access to your tokens again. We use the same algorithm banks and the NSA use to protect their information.
- Multi Device Synchronization:
Are your re-scanning all your QR codes just to add them to your tablet and smartphone? With authy you can simply add devices to your account and all of your 2fa tokens will automatically synchronize.
Still waiting for an SMS to arrive? do you travel constantly and lose access to your accounts? Authy generates secure tokens offline from the safety of your device, this way you can authenticate securely even when in airplane mode.
- All of your accounts:
We support most major multi-factor authentication accounts including Facebook, Dropbox, Amazon, Gmail, and thousands of other providers. We also support 8 digit tokens.
- Protect your bitcoins:
Authy is the preferred two factor authentication solution to protect your bitcoin wallet. We are the default 2fa provider for trusted companies like Coinbase, CEX.IO, BitGo and many others.

Ratings and Reviews
Custom Logos not fully baked
For starters, I love this application and recommend it to everyone for 2FA. Additionally, I love that on iOS some basic form of custom logo support has been introduced however I didn’t realise that the custom logos wouldn’t propagate to the rest of my devices and started taking out the service names from generic logos that were replaced. Please fix.
Finally, I would love for a few “options” for the custom logo. For example “Arch” and “Arch Linux” both return pretty poor results for the UI, so does “PayPal” and “Paypal logo” is even worse. However, I would much prefer device propagation to a UI enhancement for choosing custom logos.
The app overall is pretty good. It meets the users need to a satisfactory level. The app design itself is also really nice yet simple. I find it quite easy to navigate through.
However, I do think that the customer support team could be better. I’ve contacted the team via email regarding account issues yet haven’t gotten a response (it’s been nearly a month). Please make the team more efficient.
Other than that, no complaints!
Better than G Auth but plagued with issues
The app is pleasantly designed and the cloud backups are a nice idea.
Unfortunately with nearly 100 2FA accounts, the app is a nightmare to actually use. It takes at least 20 seconds to load (and usually falls on the first attempt).
The manual sorting is nothing short of an exercise in frustration. My accounts are split roughly between four logical groups (work, home, etc), but there’s no way to categorise accounts. All I have is a giant Windows 8-esque grid of tiles. Why not add auto-sort (e.g. A-Z, Z-A, last added, last updated, last used, etc).
At least search is quick and accurate.
Logo discovery is bizarre, often finding clearly incorrect logos for major services and the right ones for tiny services.
When Authy is setup in multiple devices, every account gets a ”new” banner until you click on each one.
It’s a bit of a love/hate relationship unfortunately.
