OneAuth's OTP authenticator

Secure your social and business accounts such as Google, Facebook, or Microsoft using OneAuth's inbuilt one-time passcode (OTP) authenticator. The OTP authenticator will generate verification codes every 30 seconds.
To set up the OTP authenticator for your online accounts:
  1. Open OneAuth.
  2. Tap  at bottom of the home page, then tap Add now.
  3. Select either Scan a QR secret or Enter secret manually.
  4. If you select the Scan a QR option, you need to scan the QR code displayed on the web page by holding your device over the screen.
  5. If you select Enter secret manually, you need to manually enter details such as Account Name, Email Address, and Secret.
  6. Tap Done

Back up and sync your secrets to the cloud

If you delete or uninstall your authenticator app without disabling two-factor authentication, you will be locked out of your account. However, with OneAuth, you can back up and sync your secrets to Zoho cloud and even if you accidentally delete or uninstall the app, the secrets will be automatically restored once you restore the OneAuth app.
Privacy note:
Zoho cannot view the secrets you store in the Zoho cloud since your secrets will be encrypted using your passphrase.
