Setting up Authy

Authy Application

Authy is an application that installs on your selected device and produces a 6-digit code for you to use in Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). 

While highly versatile, Authy is the most complex option available for setting up and configuring 2FA. For first time users, Google Authenticator (from mobile phones) and Authenticator (for web browsers) are recommended simpler options.
Setting up Two-Factor-Authentication does not not require that you change any existing Binghamton University passwords. If you do not wish to change your password(s), you may fully ignore any options or prompts implying that you should do so.
