Authy App for Linux System Requirements

The Authy Linux app can be downloaded and installed on computers that support the Snapcraft store. We have tested and verified compatibility with the following Linux distributions:

  • Ubuntu
  • Linux Mint
  • Debian
  • Manjaro (known text display issues after logging out of Authy)

Other Linux distributions may also run the Authy app without issues, but we have not tested these, and won’t be able to respond to any issues you may encounter. To see installation instructions, and a list of the most common distros, see the Authy app page on Snapcraft.

Notice: The Authy Desktop app is scheduled to go End-of-Life in March 19, 2024. For full details, see Authy for Desktop End of Life (EOL).

Why Snapcraft?

We used Snapcraft to build our Authy Desktop app for Linux so that we could reach as many Linux distributions as possible. Linux app distribution is a pretty dense topic on its own, but we chose to use Snapcraft to give users an experience that includes:

  • Easy installation
  • Security
  • Automatic updates
