About this app

Google Authenticator adds an extra layer of security to your online accounts by adding a second step of verification when you sign in.
This means that in addition to your password, you'll also need to enter a code that is generated by the Google Authenticator app on your phone.

The verification code can be generated by the Google Authenticator app on your phone, even if you don't have a network or mobile connection.

* Sync your Authenticator codes to your Google Account and across your devices. This way, you can always access them even if you lose your phone.
* Set up your Authenticator accounts automatically with a QR code. This is quick and easy, and it helps to ensure that your codes are set up correctly.
* Support for multiple accounts. You can use the Authenticator app to manage multiple accounts, so you don't have to switch between apps every time you need to sign in.
* Support for time-based and counter-based code generation. You can choose the type of code generation that best suits your needs.
* Transfer accounts between devices with a QR code. This is a convenient way to move your accounts to a new device.
* To use Google Authenticator with Google, you need to enable 2-Step Verification on your Google Account. To get started visit http://www.google.com/2step

Very difficult to use. I installed it for 3 accounts but the 4th was just impossible. Don't know if its the fault of the client or that of Google, but getting a message that I was using unacceptable characters was frustrating since the characters came from a Google password. No one appears to be trying to work with the clients anymore. If one is exceptionally gifted in the huge variety of words, phrases and descriptions used by the tech specialist, then fine - but the rest of us are clueless

Got really tired of things not working correctly. Cloud syncing refused to work. On the rare occasion it actually did sync it would add all the entries from the cloud as duplicate entries. Lacking in a lot of features and it's a pain trying to migrate to a different app. I switched to Aegis Authenticator and it was the best decision I ever made. Took a while to switch my accounts to Aegis thanks to Google not allowing you to export to other apps, but no regrets.

Would love to give this app 5 stars, as it’s a straightforward design that does one thing well. Almost. Since earlier this year, the app has not refreshed its list of authentication codes when the 60-second countdown timer rolls over. Given that many sites don’t have a grace period for codes from the preview 1-2 minutes, this is a stupid UI misdesign or bug (I’m going with the latter). The lack of a fix makes me wonder if Google hasn’t abandoned this product.
