Authenticator API.com is an unofficial API for Google Authenticator. Google Authenticator is the defacto-standard in app-based two factor authentication (2FA). If developers would like to add two factor authentication to your application, without using costly SMS messages, use this API to integrate with the Google Authenticator App, without writing the complex crypto code required to do so from scratch.
To use the google authenticator, pair an app with a user's google authenticator app via a QR code, that developers can generate via the "Pair" API call. Once this is done, ask for the user's pin, and validate it against the "Validate" API call.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
