@darnell Yes, Google Authenticator sucks, but 2FA is a standard so you don't have to use it even for a Google account.
I've been using andOTP for several years and I'm very happy both with the UI and the secure backup/restore features:

@codewiz Thanks! If I ever buy an Android phone that will be blessing. Many sites now present me with the option of sending an SMS, using email or (the smart ones) realize I am using multiple mobile devices & will have me confirm via push notification on one of those (iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch).
However, there are a few that were a nightmare to navigate around, & I had to have tech support disable the Authenticator login after swapped phones.
Right now I am relying on a mixture of 2FA over SMS/Push Notifications & Face ID for security.
I still think it’s crazy & hilarious that I can use Yubikeys for my iPhone 📱 & (theoretically) Apple Watch ⌚️ but not for my iPad Pro.
Just a personal instance of Mastodon that is intended for one person. :-)
