Auth0

Auth0 is mainly a solution for authentication and authorization. And it does what it promises in that aspect, but I also find it very helpful when it comes to customer support because I can see a lot of crucial information about user activity. So we have allowed our customer services team members to access auth0 backend log files for troubleshooting user login issues, etc. And the backend administration site is fairly easy to understand. Metadata along with Rules and Hooks allow for flexibility for token generation . Multiple ways to authenticate.

If you've ever gone to use a multi-factor authenticated app, and not had your authentication device nearby, but had another device on-hand, Authy is for you. Authy makes it easy to turn any of your devices into your second factor for authentication, ensuring that your codes are always at hand. Even if you don't want to use multiple devices, users will appreciate the ability to back up their authentication codes, so that if their authentication device is ever lost, they can easily recover the codes to a new device, without having to re-register the new device with their applications.

Pros

Auth0

  • The Auth0 documentation provides plenty of examples and tutorials for users to get up and running quickly
  • Auth0 is very flexible, it has a lot of pre-build authentication methods but also allows you to customize your method of authentication if you need to build off an internal provider
  • The Auth0 user interface is generally intuitive and it has detailed logs to assist with auditing
  • Auth0 comes at a very competitive price-point if your platform doesn't require a huge number of users (the free tier alone could be sufficient for many)

Twilio

  • Easy implementation. Just a few lines of code.
  • Custom numbers for area codes (we have one in each different city).
  • Cost effective. Very cheap not only for a number (about $1 or so per number per month) but also for sending out automated SMS.
  • Good overview dashboards to see activity, send rates, and deliverability.
  • Number verification (so the text that makes you input a code) something we haven't used but will be adding in in the near future.

Cons

Auth0

  • Price point for ALL features can get a bit pricey. But they have a startup plan which helps big time. Developer plans start at $23/mo and do not include all features.
  • Actions, rules, hooks, and email customization are great features, but the UI is a bit tough sometimes, not very responsive to screen size and code editors are cut off in a difficult place to maneuver.

Twilio

  • There is some latency when calling international phone numbers.
  • You are charged for both incoming and outgoing calls so your costs can go up quite quickly depending on usage.
  • VoIP laws come into the picture depending on where you are located. You may need to get your IP whitelisted by your provider to allow VoIP calls within your location if this is the case for you. Would be great if Twilio could assist with this aspect.

It really cannot get much easier. Simply sign in, verify the device and off you go. I have found Authy to be very easy and almost identical across all the devices I use. I am disappointed about the slow update process. Authy could use some updating, but I have not seen it yet.

There isn't a clear method to get a hold of support when trouble arises if you're on their standard plan. You can file a support ticket and they generally are responsive. I've often been able to find similar questions to the questions I've had when it comes to support in their ticket history, however, some have been closed without a satisfactory conclusion for the original poster.

I've never had to contact Authy's support. Of course, that's because Authy is so simple and easy to use that there hasn't been any need to. Authy correctly implements the time-based one-time password (TOTP) protocol, and becomes it conforms to the standard, it easily replaces Google Authenticator for your needs.

Alternatives Considered

Auth0

Okta is very similar to Auth0, but we got some references that used Auth0 so we decided for that, most because it was recommended.With Amazon Cognito was the same, there were not experience with any of these before so we went with Auth0 as first experience and stayed with it.

Google Authenticator — There's no contest here, Authy feels like a much better choice. It's much easier to recover from a lost phone, and it's one less Google app on my phone.1Password — This is actually the next product we plan to evaluate; it's more promising for sharing accounts across multiple users.

Return on Investment

Auth0

  • With Auth0, we saved a lot of time and money implementing identity management that would work across all of our services instead of doing it ourselves.
  • There's no going back from Auth0. We've become really dependent on them.
  • It reduces a lot of burden on our side to be GDPR compliant.

Twilio

  • Our ROI was improved compared to our previous providers. Twilio Voice fees are very reasonable comparing with similar alternatives.
  • We can add easily new phone numbers for as little as US$1 for newcomers and offices, just with the click of a button inside Twilio admin console.
