      “Twilio, the company that owns the Authy two-factor authentication ecosystem, has announced its Authy Desktop apps for macOS, Windows, and Linux will reach end-of-life on 19 March 2024. It’s unclear whether Authy Desktop will stop working or just cease receiving updates. Twilio will continue maintaining its mobile apps, and the company recommends switching to them. Given how basic the Authy Desktop app was, it’s unimpressive that Twilio didn’t feel up to keeping it alive. Authy Desktop was worthwhile because it’s easier to copy an authentication code from a Mac app than to retype it from an iPhone app.”
