I recently discovered Aegis Authenticator. An open source alternative to Google Authenticator or similar 2FA apps.

It has some neat security features like:

  • Lock with password and biometric

  • Easily rename entries in detail. You could rename it completely so that to someone else the company or account is unknown.

  • Tap reveal codes instead of showing all codes immediately

  • Encrypted backups to storage or as part of regular Android backup

  • Ability for encrypted backups to have different password than lock off the app

  • Convenient import/export options
