Reinventing how humanity uses strong authentication.

Authy is the first strong authentication platform built for large-scale applications and built with the end-user in mind.
With Authy you get all the benefits of strong authentication with the simplicity that you've always wanted for your customers.

Authy was founded on a simple, powerful idea: everyone should be able to use strong authentication. With most of the world's data stored in the cloud, passwords are no longer enough. Unfortunately the alternatives are too complex and hard to use for most people, so only very few end up benefiting from stronger authentication methods. At Authy we want to change that. We believe that the solution lays between the intersection of security and humanities. By building on top of existing and secure technologies like HOTP and RSA, but making them accessible to anyone, Authy has helped over 800 businesses provide strong two-factor authentication to thousands of people.
