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
I have been using Authy for awhile now and have never had any problems.
Also their customer support is 10/10.
Non-account tokens don’t work in iOS App
Grrr. Twitch and Twilio do not work from a notification and therefore on my phone. It just loads into the app and displays my existing accounts. Chrome app works fine but that’s a bother because my laptop isn’t always in reach.
Note: this behaviour is after removing account PIN as per the instructions.
iPhone X bit buggy
iPhone X is quite buggy, with Face ID not scanning and being unresponsive as well as the pin and the buttons being all the way at the top of my left and right screen next to the notch where my time and control centre are.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
