Setup Verification through the Authy App

Authy is a free application that can be used as a verification method for Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for services that require it.

Unlike the Microsoft Authenticator App, Authy can be installed on either a mobile device or a desktop or laptop computer and is therefore accessible for people who do not have access to a smartphone. Our recommendation is that people use the Microsoft Authenticator App if they can, but Authy can be used instead if not.

Authy does not require a phone number for verification but a phone number is required for initial setup of both the mobile and desktop Authy apps.
