QRCode For Google2FA

This is package is Goole2FA integrated with a QRCode generator, providing an easy way to plot QRCode for your two factor authentication. For documentation related to Google2FA, please check the documentation of the main package.


  • PHP 5.4+


Use Composer to install it:

composer require pragmarx/google2fa-qrcode

Using It

Instantiate it directly

use PragmaRX\Google2FAQRCode\Google2FA;
$google2fa = new Google2FA();
return $google2fa->generateSecretKey();

Generating QRCodes

The securer way of creating QRCode is to do it yourself or using a library. First you have to install the BaconQrCode package, as stated above, then you just have to generate the inline string using:

$inlineUrl = $google2fa->getQRCodeInline(

And use it in your blade template this way:

<img src="{{ $inlineUrl }}">
$secretKey = $google2fa->generateSecretKey(16, $userId);

Show the QR Code to your user, via Google Apis

It's insecure to use it via Google Apis, so you have to enable it before using it.


$google2fa_url = $google2fa->getQRCodeGoogleUrl(

/// and in your view:

<img src="{{ $google2fa_url }}" alt="">

And they should see and scan the QR code to their applications:


And to verify, you just have to:

$secret = $request->input('secret');

$valid = $google2fa->verifyKey($user->google2fa_secret, $secret);


The package tests were written with PHPUnit.
