Aegis Authenticator is a free, secure and open source app to manage your 2-step verification tokens for your online services.

- Encryption
All of your one-time passwords are stored in a vault. If you choose to set a password, which is highly recommended, the vault will be encrypted using AES-256. If someone with malicious intent gets a hold of the vault file, it’s impossible for them to retrieve the contents without knowing the password.

- Biometric unlock
Entering your password each time you need access to a one-time password can be cumbersome. Fortunately, you can also enable biometric unlock if your device has a biometrics sensor (i.e. fingerprint or face unlock).

- Compatibility
Aegis supports the HOTP and TOTP algorithms. These two algorithms are industry-standard and widely supported, making Aegis compatible with thousands of services. Some examples are: Google, GitHub, Dropbox, Facebook and Instagram.

It is also compatible with Google Authenticator. Any website that shows a QR code for Google Authenticator also works with Aegis.

- Groups
Have a lot of one-time passwords? Add them to custom groups for easier access. Personal, Work and Social can each get their own group.

- Backups
To make sure you will never lose access to your online accounts Aegis Authenticator supports exporting your vault which you can import onto a new device. Aegis Authenticator also allows you to import from many other two factor authentication apps (including AndOTP, FreeOTP and Authy) databases so switching to Aegis is made easier for you.

this one is open source. migration is too hard. it does support migration from authy but it requires root. i have two minor issues with authy... no dark mode. the bigger issue is that it does not show codes in a single screen. you have to open each app individually.
