    BitWarden can be used for TOTP, but it's not included in the free version. So comment from @josephcw and @gholem is not true. See: https://bitwarden.com/pricing/

    Bitwarden DOES have TOTP as a paid option ($10/yr for personal use). The only caution is if you put all your credentials and TOTP in one place, the purpose of MFA has been defeated.

    Bitwarden is great, but it's not a replacement for Authy. It does not provide 2FA services.

    Bitwarden's 2FA is paid. If you want free, open source and cross-platform app, you can use keepassXC (for pc) and keepassDX(android version of keepass)

    Bitwarden is a password manager, not a two factor authentication app.

    Bitwarden is excellent software, but it's not for two-factor authentication. The two have completely different uses.

    Authy is a one-time password generator for 2FA whereas Bitwarden is a password manager.

    Aegis Authenticator vs Authy opinions
    Almost everyone thinks Aegis Authenticator is a great alternative to Authy.
    RemovedUser

    Aegis is hands down the best 2FA app for Android. It is Easy-to-use, Clean, Open Source and provides very useful Backups. It also allows you to see the 'Seeds' of the Services which most other services like Authy or Google Authenticator don't provide.

    Best authenticator app available on Android. Sleek interface. Fingerprint unlock. Encrypted backups. Your codes aren't being stored on some remote server. What else could you want?
