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 https://fedorahosted.org/freeotp for review or modification. Contributions are welcome!
Minor release with fixes for iOS 12 ( Camera and gallery permissions ).
Ratings and Reviews
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.
Lost custom icon support on iOS 11
Love the app, however I’m no longer able to edit or set custom images ever since upgrading to iOS 11. Now when it goes to display my gallery I only see the images for a brief moment before the page switches to a blank white page, though I do at least still have the navigation buttons to exit back to the main page. Custom images worked fine prior to the update and the images I had previously set still remain.
Can't add custom icons
As mentioned by other reviews here this app purports to allow the user to add a custom icon for each site password but when attempted the iOS phone gallery appears for a second before disappearing again rendering it impossible for the user to select an image.
Aside from the aforementioned, this app performs as expected.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
