Authy for Desktop End of Life (EOL)

The Authy Desktop apps for Windows and MacOS that are available or were previously downloaded from as well as those for Linux will reach their End-of-Life in August 2024.

We made this difficult decision to sunset the Twilio Authy desktop apps in order to streamline our focus and provide more value on existing product solutions for which we see increasing demand.

Authy recommendations

For Authy Customers

In case you are using the Authy APIs to secure your application, we would like to recommend you the following:

  • Prepare communication around this notice and related timelines to your internal teams and your customers to minimize surprise or panic on the part of your customers.
  • Advise your customers to switch to our mobile apps, and share info on how to backup and sync their tokens across devices.

For Authy End Users 

We strongly recommend that you immediately switch to using our mobile apps instead. 

These top-rated apps offer similar or better features for securely storing your authenticator account tokens, and are fully supported and regularly updated. Simply download one or more of these apps from the relevant app stores:

If you have the Backups feature enabled - your tokens will automatically sync up between the devices.

Note: The iOS app will still be available to download on M1/M2 powered Apple Mac devices.

Authy Desktop Alternatives

If you are unable to use the Authy mobile apps, we recommend you look in to alternative desktop products such as the following suggestions:

Please be aware that Twilio Authy does not have any affiliation with the companies creating these apps, so be mindful of potential risks and exercise your own judgment when selecting the app.

Note: The Authy app lacks an export feature, therefore you have to re-enable the 2FA method and re-add the token in your new application with the steps here. If you prefer to delete your authentication tokens, please make sure to disable 2FA in your account(s) first, then follow these instructions.
