Sites that require google authenticator for 2fa really rub me the wrong way. Like, which angel on my shoulder do I listen to? The one telling me to use 2fa? The one telling me not to give Google products this much importance in my personal security?

OMG MY BRAIN IS GOING TO EXPLODE

@NOCARRIER Just to note: Google Authenticator is just a TOTP standard app. There are a dozen Free ones. Everything I list is available in F-Droid. All %100 compatible.

andOTP, FreeOTP(Made by Red Hat for FreeIPA), FreeOTP+(community fork with moar features), Aegis. OTP Authenitcator.

Recommend checking out Aegis and andOTP with a lot of additional features and great UI/UX improvements.

@NOCARRIER @GI_Jack If you use the Unix pass tool, you can also look at pass-otp.

@jeffalyanak @NOCARRIER Also note that KeePassXC has a compatible TOTP tool as well.

However it somewhat defeats the point if you keep your TOTP data on the same machine you are using to store/type passwords.
