Updated version have resolved many issues and added me features 😃 Wow! UI los and feel so good. Simple yet powerful enough & dark theme is my fav. Finally Google had listened to our voices and upgraded the app 😋
Excellent I use gauth to provide 2FA for ssh logins, su/sudo attempts, Gmail, aws... and I also use it for work. It's practical security done, seemingly, very well. My only complaint is a UI problem. I have a lot of keys and the existing display options have no company option. It's frustrating to scroll through the list, especially when we could easily have a font size option as well as compact themes to reduce whitespace.
Material design strikes functionality down again I didn't think it was possible, but they made the app worse. The core functionality is still there, and if all you have is 1-4 accounts that need codes, then it will work great. But the "material design" theme removes content and adds needless white space. On my phone, it only fits 4 accounts on screen. The text is no bigger, they just fluffed everything up with blank space. Though they did manage to shrink the countdown wheel (arguably as important as the code) to a tiny spec, for no reason.
UI needs work Functionally it works perfectly, but ui and usability is poor. I have 16 accounts with 2fa.....no way to organise the accounts or search. If you want Google authenticator to become synonymous with 2fa and people to adopt it for more of their accounts.....please fix.
Perfect 2FA By all means the best kind of 2FA available. Google Authenticator is a great implementation of it. However, the app was made closed source for seemingly no good reason, which is something I find rather problematic with a security tool like this.
UI worse The text us now smaller so harder to read, but the gaps between codes are larger, so mine don't all fit on one screen anymore. When it says "new dark theme," it means there's a new light theme and it's the default. Selecting the dark theme brings the old colours back.
* Improved look and feel for phones and tablets
