Migrated to Authy

Just completed setting Authy up on my iPhone and Macbook. In case you didn’t know, here are some of the advantages Authy has over Google Authenticator:

  • encrypted cloud backup – means you can easily restore your 2FA codes onto a new iPhone
  • multi-device setup – in case you want to have more than one device generating 2FA codes
  • laptop app – for those times when you’re coding at your laptop but just too lazy to walk over to another room just to get 2FA login on iPhone
  • customisable icons for each 2FA token – quite a few are picked up automatically, the rest you can select from a list or just pick a generic icon of a specific colour Overall, Authy seems to be a great app, awesome design too!
