Verify vs. Authy


(warning)

Warning

As of November 2022, Twilio no longer provides support for Authy SMS/Voice-only customers. Customers who were also using Authy TOTP or Push prior to March 1, 2023 are still supported. The Authy API is now closed to new customers and will be fully deprecated in the future.

For new development, we encourage you to use the Verify v2 API.

Existing customers will not be impacted at this time until Authy API has reached End of Life. For more information about migration, see Migrating from Authy to Verify for SMS(link takes you to an external page).

The Verify API is a consolidated version of earlier versions of our phone verification and 2FA APIs.

We strongly encourage you to use the Verify API for all new development.

We are committed to maintaining the Twilio Authy mobile apps(link takes you to an external page) for existing Authy API customers and as a consumer 2FA application. That said, the Twilio Authy mobile apps will not be supported by Verify Push.
