New 2FA / TOTP (two-factor authentication) app for OS8/9/X


If you use two-factor authentication on any websites you visit and need to generate one of those 6 digit codes when you login, I have written a simple app for that that runs on classic Mac OS and others. This program uses the Nuklear GUI library to be able to target as many platforms as possible, and uses the Carbon API for Mac OS support.

All versions of Mac OS 9 and OS X (PowerPC and Intel) are supported, including all versions of 32-bit Windows (9x/NT/etc. and up). Mac OS 8.1 and later (PowerPC) should also theoretically work but I am unable to test it (appreciate any feedback there).

If you are running anything earlier than OS 9.1, you may need to install or update CarbonLib.

Note regarding the required CarbonLib version (at least 1.0.2) versus what's available for OS 8/9:

OS 8.1 through 8.5 - Can use CarbonLib 1.0.2 through 1.1
OS 8.6 - Can use CarbonLib 1.1 through 1.6
OS 9.0 - Bundled with CarbonLib 1.0 and needs an update. (other applications / software updates may have upgraded it already, check the version of CarbonLib in System -> Extensions using "Get Info")
OS 9.1 (or later) - Bundled with at least CarbonLib 1.1 and no update is necessary.

If you are unable to find the right version of CarbonLib, please contact me.

All 32-bit-supporting versions of OS X (up to 10.14 Mojave) come with CarbonLib and no update is necessary there. If you want a 64-bit or non-Carbon version (10.15 Catalina and newer), see the link on the website for the Qt-based version instead as it supports Cocoa.

If you are interested in a port of the program to another system, or are interested in custom development of a new application, I'm always looking for interesting projects to work on. I can also assist with translations to/from Japanese.


This is great, Thank you!!

Hopefully this will be useful once Google makes OAuth 2.0 a mandatory function of accessing one’s Gmail email from outside the (heavy) confines of the Gmail web page, effective 30 May 2022.
