Description

Google Authenticator works with 2-Step Verification for your Google Account to provide an additional layer of security when signing in. With 2-Step Verification, signing into your account will require both your password and a verification code you can generate with this app. Once configured, you can get verification codes without the need for a network or cellular connection. Features include: - Automatic setup via QR code - Support for multiple accounts - Support for time-based and counter-based code generation To use Google Authenticator, you need to enable 2-Step Verification on your Google Account. Visit http://www.google.com/2step to get started.

  • Deletes all saved keys when moving phones

    I switch phones A LOT. There is NO way to backup keys so each time I reinstall I have to rekey VERY complicated 2FA keys. This takes hours and sometimes days to have the keys regenerated. Hey morons, listen to your numerous customers who are asking you to provide a way to backup the keys. Dumped for different application.
  • No email recovery option DO NOT USE THIS APP

    Terrible APP- DOES NOT BACK UP TO THE CLOUD, you will lose all the accounts in your Authenticator, recovery codes do not work! Google you are a bunch of lying thieves.

    I use google Authenticator everyday for multiple apps. It needs a way to reorganize the list. Biggest feature missing is no Apple Watch interface.
  • We need a Backup option as soon as possible

    The app is as beautiful as we expected. But we need a Backup option for the Two Factor entries. Last time I accidentally reset my phone and my TeamViewer 2 Factor was set with Google Authenticator. I couldn't recover my account as I have lost the recovery key. If and only if we had a backup/auto backup option in the authenticator app. Please try to understand our problems and bring us a good solution and let us love your apps forever. Thanks in advance.

    Good till you need transfer or add to another device to use because you can’t find where the settings is. I can’t find back-up codes or other info to set it up in a new/ another device. Compared with Authy, Authy is much much better.
  • Works well - enhancement suggestion

    I use this app for most of my accounts (except those like Yahoo & my bank that do not support true 2-factor authentication). Since I am often not near one of my computers it would be nice if I could take a screenshot of the page with the authentication code then import that from the camera roll. I trust the security of my phone a whole lot more than a computer that is not mine.

    Typical of Google to forget/ditch (?) a simple but needed tool such as this or god only knows what happened. Probably “couldn’t harvest enough personal user data” was the reason...
