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.

pretty good, could be better
The biggest benefit I get from Authy is having my MFAs in an easy to access location.
Having said that, the iOS app is awkward to use, especially when a lot of accounts get added in. The poster child is the situation of having multiple AWS accounts. A way to group accounts would be very handy.
The watch app is handy, except for when it seemingly randomly decides that an account is "encrypted", without a clear way to unlock it. Opening the same account on the phone works, but it's more annoying to try the watch, come up zeros, and then fish out the phone. And the same sorting problem exists on the watch when a large number of accounts are set up.
Those are my biggest complaints, but overall Authy has helped turn managing many MFA accounts to just annoying instead of nightmarish.
Very slow UI
The devs have compromised on information density for a pretty UI. While I am o.k. with that decision, I find the UI egregiously slow; especially switching between accounts. This is a basic task while using the app (since you can only see one account at a time) and the UI lag makes the experience extremely unpleasant. Initially I thought this would be temporary; but the problem has persisted for months now.
Love this app, but very difficult to get to work on Apple Watch
I love using this app and it's great at what it does for the most part. However, I recently got a new Apple Watch and for the life of me, I can't get it to work. It just says "You need to add an account on your iPhone first" which I know can't be true because I have 12 accounts on my iPhone.
