Well I finally broke down and created an account at my 401K provider.
Problem is they use 2 Factor Authentication and I don't give out my phone number to anyone.
So I read that there is a PC Application I could use called 'Authy' but I did not see it in ports tree.
Is there anything else I could use?

oathtool is what you want

I have been using it for years and it works like a charm

+ oathtool install

Bash:
# pkg install oath-toolkit
+ usage

Bash:
oathtool -b --totp 2FA-CODE-GOES-HERE

Thanks for the easy instructions.
I had to add quotes because of white space
oathtool -b --totp 'XXXX VGZN NZD6 XXXX'

Note that you don't have to in order to use 2fa, all it takes is an app on your phone which can generate the numbers for you. You scan a QR code to get the 'base' URL, confirm your identity and you're done.

The reason I say this is because you're close to creating a less than optimal setup. 2fa works because you split the authentication process up into 2 devices. Put everything on your PC and well... weakest link and such.
