Authy apps support two different kinds of online 2FA account tokens:
- Authenticator tokens: These tokens are added manually by scanning a QR code, or entering a token code using the Google Authenticator open source standard.
- Authy-powered tokens generated automatically keyed to your phone number after you offer that information to an Authy partner such as Twitch, CloudFlare, one of our BitCoin Wallet partners, and many more.
How to Configure an Account for 2FA Security with Authy
Each online account has a different setup process. For step by step instructions on adding a specific account to Authy, please see our 2FA configuration guides for popular services here: https://authy.com/guides/.
If you don't see your account listed, it may still be supported. Check to see if it supports software tokens at twofactorauth.org. There you'll also find a link to set up information for each site under docs.
Add an Account Token to Authy
Once your account is configured for 2FA security, you can add it to your Authy app. For instructions, please see our article Add a New Two Factor Authentication (2FA) Account Token in the Authy App
