FAQ

Is the Authy API going away?

No. We plan to continue supporting the Authy API, but new development and features will be on the Verify API.

Will TOTP be supported in Verify?

Our vision is to add TOTP and other verification channels to Verify over time. Please reach out if you have specific channel requests.
