Remove Raivo OTP (iOS MFA)

Ravio OTP isn’t platform agnostic? And why require open source for your 2FA apps, when your system and all its app are not open source?

I’m currently using 2FAS.


As the title says, it’s sold to a strange company. It’s not open source, but source available, so it cannot be forked.

Indeed, my operating system is not open source, but it does not mean that I need to trust and use many more proprietary software. I only have to trust Apple.

That’s a shame. I’ve been using Raivo for a couple of years (discovered it through Privacy Guides) and have been very happy with it.

I read Marocco here so did a search. There is indeed a Marrocian company with Mobime as name. Not sure if it is the same company however.

Update: belongs to that company in Marocco. Seems to be a marketing from the title.
Multiple similar companies are registered on this address.


One more update I got hold of the orginal author’ email earlier today and informed him of the questions asked in case he missed the github notifications. Hope to get anwers soon.


I guess give it a few days. If no replies follow it gives us a good argument to remove the recommendation.

The real problem may be to suggest a new app on iOS. There are Tofu and FreeOTP, but afaik, they don’t have interoperability with macOS like Raivo.

Hopefully this becomes another Startpage/System1 situation where there really is little to no effect on the product itself. The lack of communication so far concerns me though.

I have personally moved right away to 2FAs. On the surface at least, nothing seems scary from that app and hopefully the other thread will share some more details about it. At least, everything I could see/read about that company which acquired Raivo did not give me any sort of confidence and I did prefer to get away safely while I can before a weird update comes.

I don’t think so. Raivo itself does not provide any revenue. For startpage, it was already a company has revenue model.


In the absence of any real details, this GitHub comment makes it sound like the original dev is surrendering control entirely. Not a good sign.


I threw a post up on my blog about migrating from Raivo(to 2FAS, Tofu, or Aegis if switching to Android), I’m curious to see what will replace it if not 2FAS.

I started moving out yesterday as well. Don’t want to run the risk of losing an account. Any suggested 2FAs apps are welcomed.

In favour of removal, original author has been online on linkedin but seeminly does not want to give a statement. Perhaps things will be cleared up later but for now it’s safe to remove it from the site.

Where does this leave iOS users in need of a TOTP app?

Not sure, most people seem to be following this discussion:

Another option we haven’t looked at too much yet is Ente Auth:

I’m not super thrilled with solutions that require cloud sync though.

Was going to suggest Tofu which I always have been but does not seem to be update anymore (nov 2022) but still works quite well.
