Google Authentication or similar
#1
Hello,
I need to use a Google Authentication app to generate secure code, is there anything similar for PinePhone?
I mean I would like to buy this phone but I need this feature, otherwise I will use an Android Sad
Operating Systems could be anything.

libpam-google-authenticator or authy is probably what you're looking for. To ensure you should be able to use these, I'd suggest looking up each package option and determining if they are available as aarch64.

FreeOTP or something similar? It can generate OTP from a QR code with it. May need to port it though based on your choice of OS.

There is a gnome authenticator app which I use for 2fa on my laptop which works brilliantly. I believe it should work on the linux OSes like pmOS or KDE neon but especially pmOS with phosh as it's a GTK app. Check it out below on gitlab below.

I installed this on my arch linux laptop from the AUR, and use it as a backup for the mobile app FreeOTP. But hopefully now I can just use authenticator both on the pinephone and the laptop.

I was facing the same problem. What i decided to do was get a Yubikey. They have an application for linux Yubico Autehnticator. Can't confirm yet that it works on PinePhone but i'm sure it can be made to.

This way i'm also not tied to a device. The totp codes are kept on the key not the app/device.

EDIT: Just also found out that it can be done using CLI so even if the gui does not get built for ARM i'm hopeful for the CLI tools.
