Authy remains one of the most popular TOTP application used for 2FA due to its user-friendly features, such as centralized backup. As this feature is based on phone numbers (Authy uses your mobile phone number to identify or reset your account), which may be vulnerable to sim-swap attacks, some users may want to migrate from Authy to hardware tokens. Or, alternatively, users may need to clone/backup their existing TOTP profiles to hardware tokens.

In this guide, we will show you can transfer the accounts from Authy to a hardware token. You can use this both for backing up your TOTP profiles and transferring them completely to a hardware token.
