Import 2FA accounts from Google Authenticator into Bitwarden

Feature name

Import 2FA accounts from Google Authenticator directly into Bitwarden.

Feature function

Currently, it is not possible to import TOTP accounts/seeds from Google Authenticator (GA) into Bitwarden. And GA is probably the most popular 2FA app out there - (maybe not the best). In order to import from GA into Bitwarden one needs to use a second 2FA app as a “middleware” - like Aegis. Another way is to just create new TOTP seeds manually on each site and import those. Both processes are slow and tedious if one has many TOTP accounts.

GA allows exporting TOPT-codes using QR codes but Bitwarden can’t read those - only GA (on another device) can. This feature would make it far easier to migrate 2FA into Bitwarden as not extra apps or steps would be needed.

See here how you can do this yourself:

IMO your video nicely proves that there is a need for that feature and as I wrote: “Both processes are slow and tedious if one has many TOTP accounts.”. I also would not advice using a 3rd party web service or application to process your 2FA seeds. You need to be able to trust those 100%, thus this feature should be built in Bitwarden.
