Authy Applications

For new development, we encourage you to use the Verify API instead of the Authy API. The Verify API is an evolution of the Authy API with continued support for SMS, voice, and email one-time passcodes, an improved developer experience and new features including:

  • Twilio helper libraries in JavaScript, Java, C#, Python, Ruby, and PHP
  • Access via the Twilio CLI
  • Improved Visibility and Insights
  • Push authentication SDK embeddable in your own application

You are currently viewing the Authy API. The Authy API will continue to be maintained, but any new features and development will be on the Verify API. Check out the FAQ for more information and Verify API Reference to get started.

Twilio Authy API applications are created through the Authy section of the console. You may have many applications in one Twilio account, but each Application you create will be isolated with a separate list of users and separate API key.

Create New Application

To create a new Authy application, click the red plus ('+') button from the console:

Create New Two-Factor Application

NOTE: The application name is limited to 30 characters.

See how to get your Authy Application ID here.
