Authy Deleted Token by Mistake

If you have deleted an Authy 2FA token by mistake, you may be able to recover it if you have previously enabled backups and sync on your Authy app, and are within 48 hours from the initial deletion. If you meet these requirements, you can recovery your token using the following processes.

Warning: Tokens marked for deletion are permanently removed from all devices and our servers after 48 hours have passed. This can not be undone or reversed.

Encrypted tokens will display a warning when deleting. Once approved, an encrypted token is permanently deleted. If you accidentally deleted an encrypted token, you will need to contact the provider you created the token with to regain access to your account.
