Generate Two-Factor Authentication Codes on Linux with ‘Authenticator’ for over 290 websites and apps

‘Authenticator‘ is an aptly-named, native, and easy to use two-factor authentication app for the Linux desktop. It’s designed for GNOME-based environments like GNOME Shell, Budgie and MATE, but should work pretty much anywhere else you might need too.

You don’t need a desktop app to use two-factor authentication with your favourite services. It’s just that having one makes using a 2-factor set-up a heck of lot easier. Think of it as a convenience rather than a necessity. So rather than reach for your smartphone each time you need to enter a two-factor authentication code you can open this app on your Linux desktop and copy/paste your code across.

Authenticator supports over 290 websites and apps, including a huge number of well known services, including:
- Amazon
- Evernote
- Dropbox
- ProtonMail
- Facebook
- Google
- Twitter
- Apple
- LastPass
- OneDrive
- Reddit
- Gmail
- YouTube
- Twitch
