Authy support

To use Authy tokens outside of the Authy app, you need to extract the secret key and convert it to base-32. The resulting token can then be used with this tool.

  2. Enter chrome://extensions in the address bar.
  3. Check Developer mode.
  4. Click the main.html link in the Inspect views section of the Authy app.
  5. Navigate to the Console.
  6. Paste the code below in the console and hit Enter.

Authy settings

Use the following settings for native Authy tokens.

Digits: 7 Period: 10

The period shown in the Authy Chrome App is 20 seconds, but it actually uses 10 second intervals and skips every other token.

If your authenticator application only allows 6 or 8 digits (like FreeOTP), choose 8 digits and use the last 7 digits for your code.

Import using QR codes

To make it easier to import Authy entries into another authenticator app, generate QR codes using my QR code generator.
