Google Authenticator Pros
✓ Not goodSometimes the ´add account ‘ button appears. Sometimes not. Very frustrating..Version: 3.4.0
✓ A fix for iOS 14.2 crash...If it crashes when you try to open the app on iOS 14.2, do this to fix it without losing your codes: go to Settings - iPhone Storage - Authenticator and select Offload App. This removes the app but does not delete its local data. Once done, select Reinstall App. The app will be reinstalled and it won’t crash any more, and your codes will all still be there..Version: 3.0.1✓ Google Authenticator Positive Reviews
Google Authenticator Cons
✗ Useless if you get a new phone or if you lose your phoneIt tells you to store keys but no one really has time for that and you can easily forget where and how you stored the keys in the first place if you lose the device. If you get a new phone every account you use this app to verify will also be locked. This is the worst security app I’ve ever encountered and too complicated. Do not use this if possible..Version: 3.2.0
✗ Worst app possibleNintendo forced me to download this app to utilize my 2FA after I got hacked. They forced this app upon me. After I reset my phone, everything is gone. Everything. Now my Nintendo acct is locked out because they forced this app on me, which has no recovery option or anything attached to it. Would rate less if I could. Use another app that ACTUALLY gives a crap about users..Version: 3.1.1✗ Google Authenticator Negative Reviews
