  • Aegis

    A free, secure and open source app for Android to manage your 2-step verification tokens.

    Icon packs are coming soon. [1] Steam accounts can be imported if you have root access, or you can try [2].

    IIRC Steam codes are almost standard except they use a different encoding because... Valve likes to roll their own stuff (?). I agree that trading makes only having codes a bit less useful. They could've used the same codes to confirm trades instead of an entirely separate interface.

    > Icon library for common websites using OTP

    Someone from the community is maintaining an icon pack for Aegis: https://github.com/aegis-icons/aegis-icons. We're currently working on making icon packs easier to use in Aegis, see: https://github.com/beemdevelopment/Aegis/issues/509.

    > Maybe Steam OTP support

    Steam is supported, actually! But like you said, you'd still need the Steam app if you're doing trading.

  • pass-otp

    A pass extension for managing one-time-password (OTP) tokens

    I use Aegis, but also import the TOTP URI to pass, and use it with pass-otp[1].

    It kind of defeats the purpose of 2FA, but I keep my pass repo relatively secure, and the convenience is worth it.

  • Tofu

    An easy-to-use two-factor authentication app for iOS [Moved to: https://github.com/calleluks/Tofu] (by calleerlandsson)

    Check out Tofu if you're on iOS! Open-source, way nicer UI than Google Auth, and you can back it up to iCloud.
