Do you think we are missing an alternative of 2FAuth or a related project?
A web app to manage your Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) accounts and generate their security codes
Credentials (login - password) : [email protected] - demo
2FAuth is a web based self-hosted alternative to One Time Passcode (OTP) generators like Google Authenticator, designed for both mobile and desktop.
It aims to ease you perform your 2FA authentication steps whatever the device you handle, with a clean and suitable interface.
I created it because :
- Most of the UIs for this kind of apps show tokens for all accounts in the same time with stressful countdowns (in my opinion)
- I wanted my 2FA accounts to be stored in a standalone database I can easily backup and restore (did you already encountered a smartphone loss with all your 2FA accounts in Google Auth? I did...)
- I hate taking out my smartphone to get an OTP when I use a desktop computer
- I love coding and I love self-hosted solutions
- Manage your 2FA accounts and organize them using Groups
- Scan and decode any QR code to add account in no time
- Add custom account without QR code thanks to an advanced form
- Edit accounts, even the imported ones
- Generate TOTP and HOTP security codes
2FAuth is currently fully localized in English and French. See Contributing if you want to help on adding more languages.
2FAuth provide with several security mechanisms to protect your 2FA data as best as possible.
Single user app
You have to create a user account and authenticate yourself to use the app. It is not possible to create more than one user account, the app is thought for personal use.
Sensitive data stored in the database can be encrypted to protect them against db compromise. Encryption is provided as an option which is disabled by default. It is strongly recommanded to backup the APP_KEY value of your .env file (or the whole file) when encryption is On.
2FAuth automatically log you out after an inactivity period to prevent long life session. The auto logout can be deactivated or triggered when a security code is copied.
2FAuth generates OTP according to RFC 4226 (HOTP Algorithm) and RFC 6238 (TOTP Algorithm) thanks to Spomky-Labs/OTPHP php library.

.sqlite file in the
database/ folder of your 2FAuth installation.
Set your variables
In your installation directory make a copy of the
.env.example file and rename the copy
.env file and adapt the settings to your running environment (see instructions in the file)
Prepare some stuff
php artisan migrate:refresh php artisan passport:install php artisan storage:link php artisan config:cache
You are ready to go.
For development only
Checkout the 'dev' branch then install and build js dependencies
npm install npm run dev
First, backup your database.
Then, using command line :
git pull php composer.phar install php artisan migrate php artisan config:clear
You can contribute to 2FAuth in many ways:
- By reporting bugs, or even better, by submitting a fix with a pull request on the dev branch.
- By suggesting enhancement or new feature. Please have a look to the 2FAuth development project, maybe your idea is already there.
- By correcting or completing translations in a language you speak, using the Crowdin platform. Ask for your language if this one is lacking.
