FreeOTP adds a second layer of security for your online accounts. This works by generating one-time passwords on your mobile devices which can be used in conjunction with your normal password to make your login nearly impossible to hack. These passwords can be generated even when your phone is in airplane mode.

FreeOTP works with many of the great online services you already use, including Google, Facebook, Evernote, GitHub and many more! FreeOTP also may work for your private corporate security if they implement the standardized TOTP or HOTP protocols. This includes great enterprise solutions like FreeIPA.

FreeOTP is open source and free software! Licensed under the Apache 2.0 license, you can obtain the source code for FreeOTP at for review or modification. Contributions are welcome!

add option to migrate accounts

I just noticed that currently you do bot have the option to export your account to a new device using freeotp. This is a major flaw of this app.
Using Google Authenticator I can export the data between different devices using Google Authenticator.
This would be very helpful to have the same option on freeotp.
Also a goos upgrade would be to add password protected for mfa for items previously created. I can add a password to new mfas I add but can’t add to existing ones.
Or add a general option to set a password to open the app itself.

Wonderful interface, great security, lacking one or two important features.

This is my go-to Authenticator app: the interface is clean, interaction is simple, and it’s easy to tell which key belongs to what service. However, I’ve noticed that there is no option to input a string of text to generate a key, which is all that some services offer. Because of this I’m forced to use another Authenticator for some services, one owned by an unnamed company with bad privacy practices.
I’d appreciate if the aforementioned functionality was added, as that would allow me to rely less on the also aforementioned nosy corporation. Overall great app, would recommend to everyone, it’s just that one feature that’s missing.

It works

Although I have never used any other authentication app, I don’t see why I would need any features this one doesn’t have. I use this on an iphone 6s with ios 12 and it has never caused any problem for me. I have not tried to add any custom icons, so if that really isn’t working as some other reviews say, I wouldn’t know and I have no need for the feature.

Unless I am not remembering correctly, this app is open source which makes it more secure than the overwhelming majority of other authentication apps.
