Twilio will abandon Authy desktop, a good opportunity to switch to an open-source app. That is if you manage to export the tokens from Authy. Without a convenient export, many users will be stuck.

The guides you can find online require an old versions of the desktop app. Is there a known way today? Do we know how/where Authy stores the secrets on-device?

    I think NeoBackup can export the secrets, but that requires a rooted device. Worst case would be that you have to re-enable TOTP on every service you have

    A GIST with good instructions/how to. Follow the steps until #8, but don’t paste in the following code block; instead scroll down a bit until you see Alternatively, this code can be used to save your tokens as a JSON file, and then paste in THAT code block. That should get you a json file with TOTP credentials ready to import to another FOSS authenticator. I like Aegis and it can import that json file from step 1.

      This requires an old version of Authy Desktop. I’m on Linux and i cannot find this old version anywhere. They use snap.
