Custom icons in Duo app?


#1

I’m using the Duo app not just for the multiple duo-protected applications and sites I sign into, but also for storing all of TOTP-based 2FA logins—I’ve got 27 different logins in the app as of this morning.

The duo-protected items pick up their icon from the Duo service, and there are pre-made icons for several of the other TOTP items I use (like AWS), but for the majority of logins I have to either pick an incorrect icon from the app’s list of icons, or just go without.

Having icons to visually differentiate the logins when scanning through the list is a huge help, so I end up going with distinct (but often incorrect) icons so that each service has a visual identifier. However, it would be even better if the app supported user-specified icons—either by picking an image from my device’s filesystem, or by feeding the app the URL of an image I want to use.

Duo has said for at least a couple of years that this functionality is coming, but it has yet to materialize. Any ETA?

Hi lee, I’ll check with our development team on that. In the meantime, did you know that you can change the name of accounts listed in the Duo Mobile app? That might help differentiate your accounts as well.

Howdy Lee,

I’m the Product Manager for Duo Mobile. I’m thrilled to hear you are using Duo Mobile as an authenticator for 3rd party accounts.

We occasionally add new services as customers request them. What services are you using that you want added? We can add those to our queue for future support.

We are considering allowing custom logos in the future, but at this time I don’t have a timeline to share.

Thanks for getting back to me, guys.

@Taylor_McCaslin, here’s a nearly complete list of sites I’m using 2FA with that don’t include icons:

…and also a Discourse icon would be useful for Discourse forums like this one, since CodingHorror & team added TOTP 2FA to Discourse a few versions ago.

Thanks for the opportunity for feedback.
