Has anyone been able to enable 2FA for Uber on Android?


I was trying to enable 2FA for Uber, but the Uber app doesn't show a QR code nor does it show you the TOTP secret as text. You can only enable 2FA in the app, not in a web browser.

Instead what the app does is open whatever TOTP app is available. For example, it sends the TOTP secret to Google Authenticator automatically. If you have multiple TOTP apps, then you get a menu that lets you pick which app to use. It would be nice if I could select 1Password as my TOTP app.

Is there another way to do this?

1Password Version: Android 7.3.4
Extension Version: Firefox 1.17.0
OS Version: Android 10
Sync Type: Not Provided

    @que6ae From what I can tell, it looks like Uber opens your authentication apps. 1Password has a built-in authenticator, but isn't an authentication app, itself, which is why you're not seeing it on the list. I'd recommend reaching out to their support team to ask them to allow you to use other options. :)

  • Okay, thanks.

    On behalf of peri, you are welcome! If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out anytime.

    Have a wonderful day :)

  • If you choose the “My Authenticator is on another device” option it gives you both the QR and the key so you can set it up with 1Password that way.
