  • Requires correct date/time to work

    Make sure you’ve chosen “set automatically” for your date & time (in iOS settings), because this App relies on it being correct in order to function. Works well and is easy to setup new logins. As the number of 2FA accounts I have grows, I would like to see a better way of organising or searching for them.
  • Actually makes your accounts less secure....

    If your phone breaks you are stuffed. Even an encrypted backup doesn’t transfer this data which meant it wasn’t transferred to my travel phone and my main phone died whilst I was away and had to be totally replaced. Not all accounts which use 2FA can turn it off behinds the scenes of your phone is out of action. Or may take weeks to Do it. So this is a security flaw. It’s not that inconceivable that you could lose your phone and printed codes in a house fire. I highly advise you to not rely on this for 2FA.
  • Great app!

    It's a great app. Maybe some alternative layout options would be handy, like as a grid, alphabetical or as website icons/favicons? The ability to rename items would be awesome! It might be handy if there were also a macOS companion app which it could sync with as an alternative!?
