What is Authy?
Authy is a two-factor authentication (2FA) app designed to enhance online security by providing an additional layer of identity verification. Users link Authy to their accounts, and the app generates time-based one-time passwords (TOTPs) or utilises push notifications to create a second authentication factor beyond traditional passwords. This extra layer of security helps protect against unauthorised access, as it requires users to provide both something they know (password) and something they have (mobile device with Authy). Authy has a cloud backup to sync data between devices, it works on any other mobile device, tablets or desktops a user owns. Authy's use of temporary codes and various authentication methods adds an extra safeguard to online accounts, making it a popular choice for those seeking to bolster their digital security.
