I’ve been using Authy for years, don’t really have a problem with it. But I’ve heard many people not liking Authy solely because of two things:

  1. They anonymously track when someone logs in using an OTP. I can’t find any official statement about this, but it’s anonymous so I don’t get why people are paranoid (you don’t need to give your identity when using the Authy app). Maybe I just haven’t come across an official statement that they do track, if someone finds it please let me know.

  2. They don’t give people their 2FA secret keys for people to migrate out. Honestly, this doesn’t bother me. I can just write down the secret keys in a secure file during the time of adding it to Authy

I feel like these two are really small reasons for someone to hate on Authy (if one of them is even true). But I’m curious, what is an alternative to Authy that is free to use and syncs apps on all platforms? Would love to try the recommendations
