Authenticator Plus works for Battle.net and Google. It does a few others as well like Microsoft.
I like Authenticator Plus the best, sure it cost a little but it looks great, have dark mode, sync to dropbox, and show at least 7 codes at once.
Authenticator plus [link] can backup and sync using your Google Drive or Dropbox if you want.
If you don't want to use Authy or Lastpass OTP implementation.
I use Authenticator Plus
I think it's worth the money, I can see 7 accounts on one screen, backup through drive/dropbox, app protected with a PIN/fingerprint.
Which is why I use Authenticator Plus, I control the cloud backup location. Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. Not to mention the UI is miles ahead of Google Authenticator, and last time I checked, Google Auth didn't work with Android Wear.
Edit: Also having it synced to my watch, helps getting through the setup of Google, Dropbox and everything else on my phone until I get Auth Plus set backup. My watch is the last thing I reset because of that. I haven't had to use recovery codes in a long time.
I recommend Authenticator Plus. It works with multiple services and the wear functionality is rock solid. Google Play Link
> If it had blizzard auth support it'd be an amazing all-in-one tool. :P
Might I suggest AuthenticatorPlus? I don't think it does 7-digit authy tokens, but it does do Battle.net.
Authenticator Plus is much better anyway, lets you sync it (cryptically) with Dropbox or Drive, Android wear support, lock the app with a pin or fingerprint, and (with a separate app from the developer) import your accounts from Goggle Authenticator.
Me too. Authenticator Plus is a better alternative. There's a small cost but it's worth it. [link] As recommended to me on this sub.
Move your codes to this app. It has built in support for backing up to Google Drive or Dropbox. It encrypts the database so you shouldn't worry about someone stealing it.
Don't use Google Authenticator! Use "Authenticator Plus" with encrypted sync to dropbox. If your phone breaks just install that app again, enable Dropbox link and restore all 2FA accounts without hassle.
Authenticator Plus is a much better alternative to Google's official app, it handles multi-device syncing by storing storing an encrypted blob on dropbox/drive that requires a master password to decrypt on your device.
Definitely try out Authenticator Plus. It's compatible with google's authenticator implementation, and backs up to google drive. Just enter your recovery pin and it restores everything on your new phone.
I use Authenticator Plus:
I prefer that for several reasons over Google Authenticator.
Also, I use Wear Mini Launcher, so that I have a quick launch shortcut on my watch face for the Authenticator Plus app.
Edit: Added link
> I suggest you move apps if yours doesn't have backups and you want that. I like Authenticator plus personally. Can up back to google drive, dropbox and to the phone itself.
If you're on Android try Authenticator plus instead. It allows you to encrypt and backup your 2fa sites to Dropbox or another place. Also if you're a LastPass user their authenticator app will backup sites to your account.
Today I learned (TIL) no apps on my phone start with the letter A.
Only thing I can recommend is Authenticator Plus. While it is not free I have found I like this application more than Google and Authy.
If you have root there are ways to backup it up, i have used titanium backup in the past to do it, but if you don't then there no way to back it up (that i know of)
You are going to need to reset them up.
If you like google auth then probably best to write down what you use 2fa for and then disable 2fa at all those services ( so you don't get locked out) and then once the phone is reset to redo them all.
or move to a different auth app before resetting, that has backups. I personally prefer authenticator plus but there are others as well.
I recently started using Authenticator+, a fork of the Google source, with auto backup to many cloud services. It's pretty awesome, and rated 4.7+.
Authenticator Plus - [link]
The data is encrypted with a password you set up at the beginning. Also, if you're rooted you'll have to use a four digit pin evertime you open the app.
Here is the one that I use. It's free and can import from Google Authenticator. There are others for both Android and Apple. The key is to get one that can backup the settings.
Can confirm: I use Authenticator Plus. Haven't found another app that supports Wear OS for auth codes besides Enpass, but Authenticator Plus is prettier.
Hey, I had the problem too, of course I just used backup codes, but what you should look into is Authenticator Plus for future reference. you can backup and restore your profile so you don't loose anything when you reset your phone or what not.
True. You might already know, but there are 3rd party apps that have external backup options like this that you can restore via dropbox or etc (but might make it less secure?)
Eu folosesc asta ca authenticator, are avantajul că poate face sync la seed-uri în cloud așadar când îți schimbi sau ți se fură telefonul nu e mare lucru să le recuperezi.
authorization plus works with blizzards battle.net not fully OTP spec compliant version. ~~So if he can figure out how to generate steam codes as well i wouldn't be surprised to see it add either but currently i don't think any support steam.~~
edit: after saying this i was looking around the auth+ google plus page and it looks like they no longer support priority implementations. Battle.net is just currently supported for backwards compability or something but no new ones will be. Which is a shame. =/
I switched from Authy to [link]
In Authenticator plus I can see all codes from the main screen, but you have to pay for the app...
With more than 20 accounts on it, worth it for me...
Give Authenticator Plus a shot, it supports most 2FA services and you can safely back everything up so you can restore to a new ROM
You can export the db of auth keys that are used to generate the mfa codes. Thus, you can move the db from phone to phone and have a backup somewhere.
I've been using this for many years.
No, sorry, absolutely my mistake. I was talking about https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mufri.authenticatorplus
Just thought you mixed up plus with pro.
Authenticator+ works with my watch just fine and has cloud backup support for all your accounts. Yes, it's paid but it's well worth it IMO.
Yes, Google broke it in the last update. The Authenticator team probably forgot about Wear OS. It happens. Most Googlers don't know about this secret project called Wear OS.
Anyway, your best bet is to install a 3rd party solution, e.g. Authenticator Plus. Give them some 5-star rating love.
2FA codes on the watch. But, it's backed also backed up to google drive for those times when you switch phones (or use more than 1 phone)
I've used Anthenticator Plus for many years now, and was very thankful for its encrypted backups when some low-life stole my phone
I've got multiple android devices, so I always opt in for 2fa apps that has sync or cloud backup feature.
I was using Authenticator Plus for quite a long time, until the dev stopped pushing any updates/features for more than a year. For some reason, it stopped working for me if I use Google drive as backup location. The app still works if you use dropbox as your preferred cloud provider.
I currently use TOTP Authenticator, which lets you sync through google drive.
If you not looking for sync option, go for Aegis or andOTP
I use authenticator plus.
Syncs to your other devices via google drive or dropbox. Can select custom icons, names, categorize and stuff
I use Authenticator Plus. Their WearOS app is simple and quick.
I use Authenticator Plus, which is paid, but includes syncing to other devices via Dropbox, encrypting backups to a file with a master password, importing from Google Authenticator (may need root and the companion app, I don't know) and more.
An authenticator app that doesn't support switching devices or backup is incredibly dumb.
You can use other apps for proper totp tokens (instead of the google app) where you can backup the tokens (encrypted) into a cloud so you don't need to set them up everytime you get a new phone. e.g. authenticator plus
You can also use a generic totp app for microsoft and google instead of phone or specific app.
The only services I'm aware off which don't allow proper totp apps is steam, blizzard and most banks. Haven't encountered any other services which don't allow them.
Lets you sync/export to an encrypted file.
Sync problems with different phones/backup problems are among these reasons why you should dump Google Authenticator and switch to Authenticator Plus.
Auth. Plus is running circles around Google's product. It's like comparing a Porsche to a VW Beetle. When you have driven a P. you won't look back.
Authentcator Plus has an 4.7 out of 5 star rating (more than 2000 ratings) and costs about 4 USD. But is worth every penny.
Thank me later, when you have lost your phone and all auth codes are backed up & ready to go with your backup/new phone. PS: Auth Plus can import all Google Auth codes.
Too bad it's missing cloud backup to Dropbox/Drive and support for WinAuth. Those two missing features are the reason why I haven't switched to it from Authenticator Plus by Mufri.
Try authenticator plus [link]
It lets you back up encrypted copy of your all your 2FA to the storage of your choice - google drive, drob box, ect. if even create local backups. Automatically syncs.
I know this is considered a possible security issue (backing up your 2FA), but if it's all behind a very secure account, which is also protected by 2FA, then IMO it's fine (at least for me).
It's too late at this point. You need to go to the exchanges. This is a, for next time, solution. Here it is on the Play Store.
I'm not sure whether Titanium would work as never tried it. What I did was use Authenticator Plus. The app has a root only option to backup current Google Authenticator entries. You can also backup to cloud or local file. I did this when flashing my phone and reimported successfully via the local file.
Edit: I can't recall if the option to backup Google Authenticator entries was a pro feature or not. If so there may be other apps that do it for free.
I set up 2FA and let the wallet sit for 6 months. I eventually had a friend send money into it but I forgot that I had since upgraded my Android version (which deleted Google Authenticator). So anyone can send money into the wallet but no money can leave the wallet. There is no way to recover because I did not connect an email address to the wallet. I have since started using Authenticator Plus which survives an OS upgrade.
True and another point we must make sure all newbies are aware. I'm using Authenticator Plus on Android for it has online backup which Google's version lacks.
You mean re setting up an authenticator app? I recommend Authenticator to make that was easier. Lets you back up keys for 2 factor authentication in drive or dropbox
I meant Authenticator Plus a very highly rated authentication app that is more versatile than Google Authenticator. It is from a top developer on the Google Play store, recognized by Google themselves.
I would suggest Authenticator+. You can backup to Google Drive, also has Android Wear support and pin entry/fingerprint to unlock it.
Authenticator Plus is my app of choice. The developer made a separate method so that battle.net authentication can be added.
Not sure what sort of phone you use, but after running into this issue myself a few times with various services using 2FA, I found this app: AuthenticatorPlus.
Might be worth it to check out, you can sync two factor accounts between devices. Atm, I have it set to sync with my phone and tablet, just in case I lose my phone. I know this doesn't help you now, but it could in the future.
You mean something like Authenticator Plus?
I currently use it for Google, Facebook and Battle.net. It's nice having all of them in the same app.
Authenticator Plus supports finger print readers if you happen to have one. Keeps a backup also.
linkme: Authenticator Plus
EDIT: I goofed the name, it's Authenticator Plus.
Which apps? It shouldn't do a factory reset unless you tell it to.
As long as you have a number you can get backup codes sent to (or use Authenticatior Plus with it's gDrive backup!)
I use Authenticator Plus.
It syncs to Google Drive, among others. I have it sync to a different (non-2factor) account's drive so I can (kind of) bootstrap myself on a new device when I normally wouldn't be able to access my codes.
I'd be very nervous about running an authenticator on a Windows PC. That's just begging for trouble.
But various mobile authenticators do offer a cloud sync option, which is safe as long as you remember your master password. I personally use Authenticator Plus, because it has the nice advantage of also working as a Blizzard authenticator.
[Link] for anyone curious like I was. I use 2 factor authentication for a few accounts and the $2.99 price tag definitely seems worth it because of the android wear support.

One more thing. Anybody got am app like myanimelist, but for western shows or really anything? I'd like to keep tabs on Steven Universe or even The Flash.
If you read my comment above, it's called Authenticator Plus
There's also Authenticator Plus which has had wear support for a while now. I use it and it's awesome.
Authenticator Plus does the job
Wear support? Does Authy have it?
The best however is Authenticator Plus
I prefer authenticator plus as it gives personal cloud backup (Dropbox, drive, etc) vs using authy servers
What are your thoughts on authenticator +?
I like Authenticator Plus the best. It syncs across various cloud services, allows backups and support fingerprint sensors.
I've found [link] to be very good, syncs to android wear too.
Authenticator Plus. I bought it because my previous OTP app, FreeOTP, didn't have the ability to export seeds. Shortly after, I discovered andOTP which is open source (free) and has that ability.
Personally I like Authenticator Plus.
or use an app like authenticator plus which allows backing up the keysets.
Just use Authenticator Plus. It has wear support, cloud backup and encryption with a master password.
Seconded, here's the link
Try this: [link]
Worth every dollar imo.
I changed to Authenticator Plus a while ago.
Works like a charm for me. Worth the $3
That is what I use. Google's suuuuucks.
Authenticator plus [link]
I've used this for years. Has a backup to local or cloud.
Authenticator Plus is also good - you can store your backup encrypted with a master key in Google Drive or Dropbox.
This one is actually good: [link]
It's offline but you can save (backup) your codes on Drive or Dropbox.
And that's why I moved to Authenticator Plus with it's automatic backup to my cloud accounts.
Authenticator Plus. [link]
I've been using this this app in place of Google Authenticator. It works very well, and has Wear OS support.
Authenticator Plus. It is a paid app but I bought years ago and I have stuck with it since.
I use this:
Backup, multiple devices, ability to rename entries, categories/labels etc.
2-factor authentication was essentially a foreign concept a decade ago. Now we can use it on almost any major service.
Similar to 2-factor, the idea of every site having its own password and having it still be convenient enogh to use felt like a pipe dream.
I discovered Reddit over 6 years ago. I probably went through a dozen or more apps before settling in Boost. It just takes work to setup, but it has every option I've ever wanted (and more)
If you're looking for a very simple, free diary/journal app, this was the best I found.
While this is technically a service, I remember when Hangouts was the best you could do. Sure, it's not perfect, but it's a lot better than Hangouts for Skype for gaming.
A must-have if you're a network admin, even just for your own home. This has proven useful in so many ways, I couldn't even begin to list them.
I'd say this decade was the true dawn of smart homes. When we were kids, we dreamed of being able to ask a computer to turn off the lights. It still feels futuristic every time I do it.
For customization nerds - if you really want fully generated custom icons, this app just made your day.
Similar to Home, I love being able to take two things that are completely unrelated and make them communicate. Creativity is important with this one.
If you use SSH on Android, this might solve every frustration you've ever had with other apps. Encrypted sync to the cloud for a one-time purchase, too.
More for the customization nerds. Make your own widgets, including with code. Doesn't get much better than this.
I would try and explain how useful this app is, but it wouldn't be enough. Give the trial a shot. This was one of my earliest purchases.
If you're like me and want to meet your neighbors, this is a great way to get to know them.
I love the concept of having a physical shortcut that you just have to tap to receive. This also feels like it's from the future.
Having a VPN to your own home network has its benefits. Only for the network geeks.
I specifically chose Rebble because I can't think of another project I use where enthusiast devs created their own Pebble servers to keep the device alive.
Virtual payments were a lot different 10 years ago. We now have tools like this to make it a whole lot safer and cooler.
True, free, encrypted email. And it doesn't suck.
To my awareness, Proton is the only free VPN where you aren't the product. VPNs used to be alien tech to most people, but now all it takes is an app, and a single click. Now you're (at least partially) hidden from the world.
When everything with Snowden happened, security was a lot more strong in people's minds. Encrypted SMS means you can keep your conversations properly between you and your contacts.
This is the only game on my list, but it was the first game that I saw run on my phone that I couldn't believe was running on a handheld device. It was also the first mobile game I played that couldn't be played on a desktop.
Hands down the best file management app I've ever used. In an alternate timeline, ES File Explorer might be here (still hurts, that one).
Another thing that feels like magic. Pick up a $20 OBD reader on Amazon and, bam! You now have a full diagnostic view of what your engine is doing.
I added these not because I'm being a corporate shill, but because both of these revolutionized how we view public transport and eating out.
If you have a living room PC, this is a must. Being able to control your computer with your phone has infinite use cases.
If you know how to use VNC, you probably already have this, but that doesn't stop it from being an incredible app.
This was the decade of the smart watch. And this app along with a few others such as Facer meant you could make whatever you could picture or program.
^(List made using List My Apps)
have you tried this
Authenticator Plus. I use this app everyday to login to services online.
I use Authenticator Plus and sync it to my Google Drive.
Just to confirm, you're talking about this right?
Authenticator Plus(not sure if FOSS) or andOTP
I am using this application. It encrypts your code and uploads it to Drive or Dropbox.
Not particularly-- they both accept generic QR codes or secrets generated by a fair share of websites (Github, Google, Facebook, Dropbox, Gitlab, Microsoft, Amazon...). It's an open standard people can implement. There are also plenty of other apps that do the same thing, such as Authenticator +, Yubico Authenticator, Oracle Mobile Authenticator, Sophos Authenticator, and more.
Authenticator Plus would be approved by our lord.
Install on your current and old phone, has option to sync.
Keep old phone in drawer/safe as backup. Occasionally re-sync.
Also seamless if changing/upgrading devices.
Well worth $2.99
Use an app like Authenticator Plus that supports encrypted backup of your 2FA profile. No need to have multiple devices since you can just restore all your 2FA accounts in one go.
