Authy protects your phone from hackers and hijackers, by adding 2-step verification tokens on your device. It supports all the major players, including Facebook, Dropbox, Amazon, Gmail and bitcoin wallets, like Coinbase and BitGo.
The interface is sleek and minimalist, with a setting button and a slide menu that takes you to all of your connected accounts. Your most accessed accounts are also conveniently displayed at the bottom.
Adding an account is simple. Just swipe the menu, tap on add Authenticator account, and input either the QR code manually or via the scanner.
The winning features are cloud-based backup and syncing between devices. If your phone is lost, stolen, or wiped, it’s as simple as installing Authy and signing back in to restore all of your tokens. Oh, and the app itself has a pin code too (obvious but essential).
A highly recommended alternative to the mediocre Google Authenticator app.
