每天使用的应用 确保在google数据不会被不当访问，强推荐使用 建议：google wallet、google accounts服务目前要求重新输入密码后才可使用，可以改为输入动态验证码，这应该更为安全？
Did Google drop support for this? Where is the Move to a different device in authenticator? From what I saw it used to be there, but is not there any longer. I have a bunch of other applications/sites/etc that use 2FA that I have loaded in GA, but there is no way to move it from my old phone to my new phone. The Google support document "Using a new phone to receive 2-Step Verification codes" references "In the section for the Google Authenticator app, click Move to a different phone." which is missing. Change phone only adds Google, leaving all the other accounts on my old phone (and what if I didn't have my old phone?). Moving to a different phone including all of the other 2FA entries was there in the past but unfortunately no longer. Useless....
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.")
Good app. Serves it's purpose of providing mfa. Codes are a nice fast 30 seconds ad apposed to 60 sec... my only gripe is when the code is nearing expiration it does not turn red. It does on all my peers iphones.. but not on my droid.
The app itself is great, having the same issue others have had with changing phones. My old phone broke, and I got a replacement phone (still using the SIM card from my old phone) and I still can't link my accounts. I was able to re-connect my google account (because of the text option) but nothing else. If you are on the same google account, with the same phone number as before, you should be able to sync with the other accounts you had on the authenticator. I had 2-step verification with my bank account, and now I can't log in because it needs a code. But the only way for me to get codes in the app on the new phone is to re-add the bank account, which I can't do because I need to be logged in to my online banking in order to generate a barcode or key. I'm trapped!
Need to offer a way to move to a new device with < 30' of work. The way it is this app should be withdrawn. You have to re-establish manually all your accounts. If you have been diligent and turned on two factor auth on all your important accounts, you are going to be punished. If your device is lost or broken, you may never recover your accounts. Amazon asked me to send an affidavit or to open a new account. You are warned.
I can't get back all the accounts I associated with my authenticator app after I lost my phone and got a new one... Very bad... Now all those accounts are locked because I can't do the 2 step verification... Please do something and I will give five star... App has been awesome till I met this challenge
