Two-factor authentication app

I know MFA is not the holy grail, but I see more and more compromises because of the lack of MFA. A colleague did not like the current two-factor authentication password clients, so he created his own.

 

I am posting this in the "Tech Talk" if there is anything you would like to see, technically, in the app. If so, please let me know.

 

The Raivo OTP app:

 

Features


• Backup/sync your OTPs to iCloud automagically;
• Export OTPs to an AES encrypted archive;
• Add custom issuer icons for your OTPs;
• Scan a QR code or add an OTP manually;
• Show the current and previous tokens;
• Search using powerful search capabilities;
• Optional FaceID or TouchID unlock.

Raymond,

I am confused. Is this a multi-factor authentication (MFA )client, or a tool for storing pads of One Time Passwords (OTP). OTP pads require tight distribution and protection, and they may or may not be used in an MFA situation. If this app is calling the second channel OTP as the part of a MFA 2-channel sequence, there is no reason to store and protect the OTP. By definition they are not re-used.

 

I looked at the App Store page you linked, and could not discern what it does, either.
