Obsidian for Mac6.3

12 April 2021

Elegant 2 Factor Authenticator.

What is Obsidian for Mac

Obsidian is an elegant 2 Factor Authenticator (2FA) app for both iOS and MacOS.

You can use it to store your OTP (TOTP/HOTP) secrets, it will take care to keep them secure and provide you the correct token when necessary.

What Is OTP?

OTP stands for One Time Password, it usually represent a tokens that refreshes every 30 seconds and is requested by systems upon a login to a new device.

This means that even if an attacker steals your password for your Instagram account he/she will not be able to login unless the correct OTP is used.

Obsidian will keep you safe in case you get hacked.

Why Is It Secure?

Obsidian stores all your tokens in your iCloud Keychain, the most secure place in your Apple device. The data never leaves the Keychain and only Obsidian can read it, no other app can access your tokens, nor do we.

Why Should I Use Obsidian When I Have Already a Password Manager?

If you have a password manager like 1Password, LastPass or Dashlane you are off to a great start, but it’s always best to separate your 2FA tokens from your passwords, for the same reason you don’t keep your Credit Card and Pin in the same wallet.

What Features Does It Offer?

Here is a list of the features included in Obsidian:

  • iCloud Keychain storage
  • iCloud Keychain sharing / sync (across all your devices)
  • TOTP & HOTP support
  • Base32 secrets support
  • Dark Mode
  • Backups, so you can always restore an older version of your tokens
  • TouchID & FaceID
  • Super-easy copy on Clipboard
  • Automatic setup via QR Code

Version: 6.2
Again - it's not free - it is a subscription based app. Reviews are filled with angry users who got locked out of their accounts when developer moved to subscription based model. Great idea - lousy implementation - yet again.
