The latest update is horrible. The app now runs slowly. The "Click to reveal PIN" feature is just a pain in the backside, especially as there's no option to turn it off. There's still no built in option to lock the app with biometrics (like Microsoft and many others have), and there's no ability to back up in case your phone dies/is lost (no transfer to another phone is NOT backup).

Authenticator used to be great, but its just awful now. It takes FOREVER to load. ~5 seconds to open the app, even upwards to 10. when scrolling through codes, it takes nearly 10 seconds to load and even freezes sometimes, and you only have 20 seconds to input them before it resets. and the click to reveal code doesnt help. It also takes forever to load, and overall, is just a terrible experience. And also as a sidenote, if you lose your phone, you lose all hopes of getting the code back.

The app used to be stellar, but the new update has the app running ridiculously slow - it takes 5-10 seconds to even open the app, and when codes refresh it freezes for a few seconds. Your codes now require an additional step to reveal them as well, slowing down every log in process considerably, especially when youre needed to use the app multiple times a day. It used to be a smooth experience, but now it adds a needless speed bump to your work day. I'll be looking into other 2FA apps soon.
