I'm leaning toward using 1Password as the authenticator and I stumbled upon an article this morning that had a good argument for 1P as an authenticator. Although since I had to search for this I'm wondering if this is like looking around for a doctor that will tell you what you want to hear
Here are the 2 sides of the argument-
from the 1P support page:
from the article:
I assume that most people are storing backup codes within 1P, does this limit the advantage of a 3rd party authenticator? Any other dis/advantages that I should contemplate?
A minor bit - from the 1P page on using 1P as an authenticator. Step #4 Saving the QR code within the Mac App;
"Drag the QR code from the website to the scanner window. If you can’t drag the QR code, most sites will give you a string of characters you can copy and paste instead." https://support.1password.com/one-time-passwords/
On my Mac the 1P scanner window was moveable and placed over the QR code.
Also, when choosing getting a QR code on a website I am given the choice of indicating whether I use an Android or iOS phone. Does this make a difference to 1P as to which I choose, is the QR code different?
