Google Authenticator App 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.

    I’ve never encountered such a poorly design application... theoretically, it seems cool, but in practice, it’s horrendous. I tried logging into my Nintendo account and for some reason needed this. So I got it, set it up for both my emails (this took forever, was annoying, and I got 2 because I couldn’t remember which it was... but I was sure it was one of them) and then tried entering it... nothing. Tried back up codes. Nothing. I went into the account and reset it, which was a pain, and tried again. Nothing. I tried multiple times of both types of codes and literally zip. I gave up. I wish that were the end of it. For some reason, all my accounts on all devices are signed out! It may be because I deleted some devices that said multiple weeks of inactivity, but the effected apps have been Google Photos and mail—applications they have control over and should notice if I log into it on one device or another continuously. Now, I’m stuck redownloading however many thousands of pictures and resigning into accounts. Hooray.

    For an app with such extensive usage in multi factor authentication, it needs Apple Watch support

    Also had trouble with iTunes encrypted backup and nothing on my new phone restore. I had to redo all my 2 steps. Could you please add support to push codes to Apple Watch? Thanks!

    Always tells me I have the wrong code when I don’t. Don’t expect to be using anything you use this Authenticator for because you won’t.
  • Locked out

    I use my authenticator on one of my personal accounts and it’s not locked me out saying I have the wrong code after checking to make sure it’s connected to the right email and using the right numbers. Did the opposite of what it’s supposed to. Wish I never installed it.
  • Didn’t transfer data to new phone

    I had a couple of profiles setup. Got a new phone and my profiles are gone. Had to go and use scratch codes to get into accounts. Switched to Duo app that we use for work.
  • Improve the list, sort

    I’d like to sort the entries or see them in a grid— something to make this app friendlier— maybe a few colors?

    I find it stupid that you make people download an app involuntarily to play their video games.
