Hi All, I am looking a way to move out of sms and individual Authenticators Apps. I see google has one, Microsoft has one etc etc… Is there a way to have 1 for all services? or I am asking too much
You should be able to use any of them for all OTP or if you have 1Password you can use that.
Authy is really good, I used that until I moved over to 1Password.
Used to use Google Authenticator but switched to 1Password when they added support. I did have 1 OTP set up in Authy for a while because the account had a nonstandard setup method and that was the only app I could get to work. Since then, they got with the times and I was able to move that one to 1P.
I do still, however, have authenticator apps for Microsoft and Xfinity since they seem to have less friction for those accounts and have decent Apple Watch integration.
If I wasn’t using 1Password, I’d probably use Authy.
I use Duo Mobile which is endorsed by my university (which has to send me a ‘push’, which is annoying). Also use 1Password for some sites.
I installed Authy… let see how it goes. thank you.
If you’re a Mac Safari user and have the need of entering Authenticator codes in web browser, you can try out the Safari (version 15.0+) built-in Authenticator.
