Authy vs Google Authenticator: Two-Factor Authenticator Comparison
2024-04-03 13:00

Authy and Google Authenticator are two popular two-factor authentication tools that do just that.

Another popular authenticator app is Google Authenticator.

Like Authy, Google Authenticator does not have a web or desktop version and is only available through iOS and Android.

As long as you enable the multi-device feature in the Authy authenticator app, there is no fear about getting back your Authy tokens, even when you lose your device.

Google Authenticator also recently added the ability to back up one-time codes to users' Google accounts.

While Authy and Google Authenticator are both quality authenticator apps, certain factors should be considered before adopting one over the other.
