A project named Aegis Authenticator v3.0 was released. It’s a free and secure open source Android app for setting up, connecting, and working with two-factor authentication (2FA) across various services.

The developers of the project explained that the goal of their product is to provide a safe and simple authenticator for various online services, as well as to include some options that are missing in other authentication programs (reliable AES-256-GCM encryption and backup). Aegis supports HOTP and TOTP, making it compatible with thousands of services.

Aegis is compatible with Google Authenticator and supports importing from other authenticator programs, including 2FAS Authenticator, Authenticator Plus, Authy, andOTP, FreeOTP, FreeOTP+, Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Plain text, Steam, TOTP Authenticator, and Win root access).

The Aegis installer and updater is published in the Google Play Store on F-Droid.

In Aegis v3.0, the developers fixed previously identified errors and bugs that caused crashes in some situations, made various improvements to the code for the stability of the program, updated the interface of some menus, improved the mechanism for sorting and selecting records, and also added support for importing backup copies from 2FAS v4.
