This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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.

What's New in Version 21.1
We now support iPhone X screen.
Broken Apple Watch experience
Update: Found if I uninstall the Apple Watch app and reinstalled it that the proper icons come back, however so do some accounts that were previously deleted. To fix that second issue I had to move one of my providers around on the home screen and the watch syncd up then. One more star since it is somewhat working now. Will rate higher when this is addressed in update.
Reported a broken Apple Watch experience with company where the logo’s for the 2fa providers do not sync up to what is on the phone. They said it is supposed to be this way. That is not correct. They worked before and even the app page shows logos. Rating low until fixed.
Locked out of major account 24 hours now
I have an account online which I use to do business which utilizes this Service. I have been locked out now for 24 hours and unable to conduct my business. I received one email asking a question for me to answer over 12 hours ago and with numerous emails have not been able to speak with a support person. I use the same phone number and email on a new phone and none of my tokens appear anymore for those accounts which were set up with this service. I highly do NOT recommend this app and service! You want a company which provides immediate help and assistance - not a Company and Service that is unresponsive now going on the second day. If you have business critical work do not use this app and service.
Bug can prevent you from logging into other accounts/apps!
Today Authy I dusted on asking me for a phone number. Half the reason I use Authy was so I don’t have to have a phone number.
I entered my phone number since there was no other way to move forward. Then it asked me to pick SMS or phone call and no matter what I picked it would tell me that I had to enable multi-device on my other devices. I think it wants me to find my old iPhone and do something there. An iPhone I no longer own since I upgraded. So now I’m locked out of all my other apps until I can straighten Authy out.
