I have been using Google Authenticator for the past 2 years without any problem. Never used Authy so I can't say anything about it.

I am trying to find which 2FA app is better. I have read reviews on app sites but 8d prefer feedback from everyday users and not just bloggers.

Google authenticator is the best way to using it has great demand. most of the people using it for security purpose. it can save our data files and some other information more carefully. so in my point of vies it is very good to use. goggle increasing day buy day its features for the people so really it is good.for using Google authentication never has no any problems for that reason i have to use this Google authentication.

Authy has backup functionality. Google authenticator doesn't have it.

I've used both, but I prefer Google Authenticator. Just don't make the same mistake I did. I thought that like other Google products, it would be backed up if I did a factory reset on my phone - that is not the case. If you don't have the backup code for a website or exchange written down somewhere, you're more or less screwed unless you can get the support team to remove it from your account. This usually results in your account being locked for some arbitrary time frame.

Moral of the story - write down those codes and keep them safe!

This is why I switched to authy. Lost my phone & laptop, couldn't restore new phone as backup was on the laptop. Was an idiot & didn't print out the recovery keys. Took me about 3 weeks to get access back to everything & then set up in Authy.

Welp.. looks like I'll switching back to google auth after reading those. Thank you.

I've known authy isn't as secure but I guess if someone can get a hold of my number i'm in a worse situation than I was when I lost my phone.

He talked to my friend. I was not convinced, but I have been using it for years and I think it is most useful and I have never been disappointed. Why not take advantage of such a cool thing as Authy.

You receive a backup code when you first setup Google Authenticator. Just keep it in the safe place! The idea is that it can be used in the event you lose your phone.

Google Authenticator has been very good to me so far in my experience. I have not used Authy so I can't compare. If you do use Google, make sure you back it up! I had to reset my phone and I forgot to back my Authenticator up and it was alot of work to reaccess most of my accounts. Besides that, it's a great app.

There is also another two factor authentication app called Duo this is apparently better privacy wise then the ones you listed. You can also just use Samourai Wallet where they have a self destruct feature as well as a feature to transfer those funds to another wallet in case of the loss or theft of a phone.
