  • Time-based one-time password (TOTP) backup - If you lose your phone or another authentication device, Authy keeps an encrypted cloud backup of your TOTPs.
  • Multi-Device Support - Your TOTPs are no longer tied to a single device - Authy supports multiple devices (including Apple Watch!).
  • Excellent User Interface - Authy makes it easy to make sure you're entering the right TOTP for your application.
  • Authy does not support the "push button" multi-factor authentication from your application's native apps. This means if you want to use Authy, you still need to use TOTP based codes.
  • Not really a shortcoming of Authy, but it does nothing to help with multi-factor authentication using text messages - those are still sent to your platform's messaging app.
  • Authy doesn't always display how much time is left before your current token expires, making it difficult to know how much time you have left to enter the current code.

  • Easy addition of new 2FA accounts, either manually or using QR codes.
  • Quick recognition of sites the accounts map to, and import of favicons for quick recognition.
  • Automatic syncing of 2FA information between devices.
  • Locating specific accounts once you've added more than a dozen or so can be a pain — a way to categorize or group them would be VERY welcome.
  • Couldn't find a simple way to kill a device from my list of Authy devices — i.e. my phone was grabbed and I want to revoke its ability to generate 2FA keys. It may be possible, but it wasn't easy to find in the relatively streamlined mobile interface.
  • Ongoing prompts for my backup password are understandable but strange, since canceling the prompt still allows me to use Authy.
