1Password as a 2nd authenticator app?

Is it possible to use two authenticator apps?

I'm currently using Authy but want to test out 1Password's one-time password feature. Will my tokens in Authy get messed up if I add my accounts to 1Password too?

    It is possible to use two authenticator apps. I personally use 1Password and Yubikey. The trick is you’ll need your existing TOTP secrets in order to set up the 2nd app. You can get these out of 1Password. I’m not sure if you can get them out of Authy. If you cannot you’d need to disable TOTP on each service and re-set it up, adding the TOTP secret to both apps at that time.


  • Got it. Thank you.

    I typically save a screenshot of the QR codes on the items I save in 1Password so that I can easily switch 2nd apps later since its far easier to "scan" the screenshot than it is to type out the URL or secret that's actually used to generate the 2FA codes.
