TOTP/HOTP: optionally display secret in addition to the QR code
Open, NormalPublic


When adding a HOTP/TOTP token we display a QR code than can be used for FreeOTP and other tools.
I create TOTPs by using a keepass plugin and need to enter the secret manually. Other 2FA applications
have the option to display the secret while displaying the QR code.

Right now I log the secret or take a snapshot and use an external application to decode the QR code.

Would it be possible to display the secret or something like "Can't snap the QR code? Click here to
show the secret to enter it manually"?
