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.

    Yeah... so if you get a new phone you gotta setup all your authentication account all over again. I had twenty some odd accounts. Some of which involve cryptocurrency. Do you have ANY IDEA what’s involved in recovering those kinds of accounts? It can take weeks and involve a LOT of hassle. I would have LOVED TO KNOW that these would not transfer to a new phone along with Google Authenticator. So now, I’ll be moving over to Authy. I mean... this is absurd. If you’re not going to be able to retain your accounts FINE... but at LEAST make us aware. And no, NOT in the license agreement section that no one EVER READS. Seriously... F YOU GA. Oh, and by the way, I’ll be sure and let EVERYONE I KNOW to go ahead and move over to Authy. Just... wow.
  • There should be a back up if you lose your phone

    I’ve got plenty of accounts on different apps and websites that have 2fa. I couldn’t get what you could do if you would lose your phone with the app. Would you be able to recover the app? It needs some kind of registation

    Need to make an update to the app. UI is outdated and more features should be added.
  • How do you remove an entry?

    How do I remove an entry?!! The edit button at the top right shows me a selectable list, but none of the items in the list can be selected. This is on iOS 13.1.1. It looks like a typical Google app. The original developers likely went to another team, since there no glory in working on an app after it’s been released. If you want to be promoted you have to show leadership, which is not in maintaining an existing app. It’s really sad, since a lot of people rely on this little app to secure their accounts. Including people that work at Google!

    I got a new phone and it turns out that I had the app set for my Snapchat, now that I have this new phone and every time I try to log into my Snapchat I can’t because I need the code from the app. Well I copy and paste the code and it always says incorrect code or I need to check my service, now I can’t get into my snap because this stupid app is messed up!
