Review from Laurent B.
Great, but... a backup/restore is needed Great application, but a function to permit save/restore to other devices could be great because with some site, it's not possible to get a recover sequence number to put on another device. So, if you break your one, you could not login again to this services.
Too easy to not do it I'd heard of MFA (multi-factor authentication) but hadn't done it yet - a recent leak made me quickly reconsider. Setting up 2FA via your Google Account is a breeze - Google's made this a brainless, painless process to protect your information. And the Authenticator app makes the process of signing into your account(s) even easier. It doesn't get any better than this.
Functionally great, could look better Really happy you can reorder accounts - I've been wanting this forever. Also great you don't need a separate barcode app to scan QR codes. What happened to the UI though? I agree with the many other reviews saying the same thing - too much wasted space by far!
Now 5* after update Edit: with the option of dark mode, Google Authenticator goes back to five stars. Thanks for listening, developers! (Previous comment - "Got to agree with other commenters - the white background in the latest update is not good. Far too bright - if I want to use my screen as a lamp, then I'll do it with the profile screen I have set up for that purpose. Bring back the black background, if only as an option.")
Great app, but... Latest update knocked out my saved accounts. Only just realized it because I have my main computer as a trusted one for Google, and the game I use it for I have set to ask me to authenticate once a month. Now I have to disable 2-step and re enable.
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.
* Improved look and feel for phones and tablets
* Integrated barcode scanner
* New dark theme option available
* Option to reorder list of accounts
