Overall great app, I used to love it ... until I got a new phone and discovered there is no way to actually move all your saved Authenticator accounts to your new device. You have to re-link them one by one. Great way to keep customers who keep buying Android phones! Moving to Authy for authentication ... the app is not as great, but lets you keep backups.
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.
It's a great app, but only problem is it does not synchronized applications that you have installed through bar code for easy retrieval. Once you loose the company app code you have a hard time retrieving it especially when you need the code also to gain access to the account on the third-party website and no proper support is provided to disable two-way authentication. example: I can't access my teamviewer anymore because I reinstalled google authenticator and it's asking for code which I can't get on the site without providing security code from Google authenticator. Would be great to have an authenticator that remembers the apps scanned and retrieve it once you provide your google account credentials.
It is a fantastic app, the recent visual update is lovely and clear. I would love the one addition of a pin code to actually access the codes. As in to make it really secure, when you load the app it will have the option to ask for a password/pin just to make sure no one can nick your phone to get the codes. Then again if they can see your texts that kinda negates that... aight ignore me and stuff lol
Let's say I have 2 devices, device A and device B. Currently, for the same account, the Authenticator app only allows one device to have the codes. But what if that device gets stolen while unlocked? The person would be able to use the Authenticator app on your device and gain access to your accounts. Please add a feature to easily have Authenticator work on different devices other than the one it's installed on.
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!
