Subject description: two-factor authentication for the linux desktop / Flatpak
 

How to install and launch Authenticator in your terminal :

Installing Authenticator :
flatpak install flathub com.github.bilelmoussaoui.Authenticator

Launching Authenticator :
flatpak run com.github.bilelmoussaoui.Authenticator

As of now, 290 websites and apps are on Authenticator's list for two-factor authentication.

Dog and Puppy users can have Authenticator installed with flatpak.

Inspired by your post at http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1029706&search_id=1974012788#1029706, I decided to give Authenticator a whirl. Thanks for the heads-up x 2, labbe5!

Note for anyone who's never installed Flatpak before: it can swallow your savefile in a single gulp! To avoid going into the red zone, I created a directory called flatpak on my hard drive and symlinked it to /var/lib before running
Code:
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo

Takes a while for everything to download, but the app itself is fast and light. I also created a script in /root/my-applications for convenience, containing
Code:
#!/bin/sh
flatpak run com.github.bilelmoussaoui.Authenticator

I can't remove my mobile numbers from all my 2FA accounts just yet, as I sometimes need to access them while out and about and my crappy phone doesn't always run my authenticator app (andOTP, one of the lighter ones with the added advantage of a PIN), but one step at a time...
