The best way to manage all your 2FA accounts is to use the Authy app. It enables you to have a single mobile app for all your 2FA accounts and you can sync them across multiple devices, even accessing them on the desktop. Install Authy on your device by searching for it in your device’s app store.

  1. LastPass Authenticator With this app, you are provided with a user friendly, and secure verification with one-tap login to top sites like Google, Facebook, Amazon, and many more. A device can be marked as trusted so that you won’t be prompted for codes in the future. Some features of the app are.
  2. If you search for “authenticator” in the app store, you are likely to see Google, Microsoft, LastPass, and Authy authenticator apps at the top of the search results. When I did a search for the word “authenticator”, these four were among the top six apps. The end result is the same with these apps.
  3. LastPass also has a password generator and the app automatically tests the strength of your passwords. The secure vault is available online and offline. For more information on downloading LastPass to your phone, check out our guide: how to install APK files. Features: Save and store passwords and usernames.

Important: If any sites prompt you to use Google Authenticator for two-factor authentication, note that you can always substitute the Authy 2FA app instead. Although they work in similar ways, Authy is more feature-rich and allows for multi-device syncing, cloud-backups, and easier account recovery should you change or lose your phone or device.

Locate 2FA

When logged into your Lastpassaccount, click on the “Down” arrow to the right of your account icon (or the generic image if you haven’t added an image yet.). Then click “Account Settings.”

In the next window, Click “Multifactor Options” in the top Navigation. This will present you with multiple 2FA tools to choose from. If you are an Authy user, click the ‘edit’ or ‘pencil’ image to the right of Google Authenticator.

Similar to Google and Microsoft’s authentication apps, you can install the app on your new phone or tablet, verify it with the service, and manually switch your accounts before removing the old app. LastPass offers a cloud backup service for its Authenticator to make migration to a new device easier—but it requires using the LastPass Password Manager app as well. For many, this feature will let them ditch Enpass, LastPass, and other paid password managers. Microsoft Authenticator is a free and essential app used for two-factor authentication (2FA) with code.

This is a good example of how other sites will prompt you to use Google Authenticator for two-factor authentication, but remember that you can always substitute the Authy 2FA app instead.
