What is Google Authenticator? Description of Google Authenticator

Google Authenticator adds an extra layer of security to your online accounts by adding a second step of verification when you sign in. This means that in addition to your password, you'll also need to enter a code that is generated by the Google Authenticator app on your phone.

The verification code can be generated by the Google Authenticator app on your phone, even if you don't have a network or cellular connection.

• Sync your Authenticator codes to your Google Account and across your devices. This way, you can always access them even if you lose your phone.

• Set up your Authenticator accounts automatically with a QR code. This is quick and easy, and it helps to ensure that your codes are set up correctly.

• Support for multiple accounts. You can use the Authenticator app to manage multiple accounts, so you don't have to switch between apps every time you need to sign in.

• Support for time-based and counter-based code generation. You can choose the type of code generation that best suits your needs.

• Transfer accounts between devices with a QR code. This is a convenient way to move your accounts to a new device.

Google Authenticator Pros

Google ConvienceEasy to setup and perfectly secure. I would like to make it easier but I think this would ruin the security protocols and defeat would be locking myself out of all accounts..NAGCLVersion: 4.0.1

Essential App, But No Cloud BackupThis is one of the most essential apps on my phone. I don’t know why I trust Google with my 2FA codes (I don’t really) but this is a very useful and important app. It is pretty basic as far as apps go, but it works for the intended purpose. They just added the ability to transfer 2FA codes when upgrading to a new phone. They released this feature less than a month after the second wave of new iPhones came out… so less than a month ago I did the transfer manually, turning 2FA off and back on for my new phone across a dozen services. Some were easy to transfer, others were the opposite. It took over an hour. Their timing with this feature is awful, but at least it’s here now I suppose..Proteus846Version: 3.1.0

Google Authenticator Cons

The worst Authenticator app ever. Tokens get removed by themselves.You have all heard of complaints that the app does not allow you to migrate your Authenticator tokens over to a new phone or other device. This is unfortunately expected with this app. Use Authy if you need to be able to back up and transfer 2 factor authentication tokens. The real issue came in after the iOS 15 update. The app decided to add duplicate tokens to my Authenticator app. Meaning I had 2 codes for 1 account. Logically as one would I removed one (1) token out of the app and continued with my day. 2 days later the app randomly decided to delete ALL 6 of my tokens. Meaning I had to re set up 2 factor authentication on 6 different websites and services. TL;DR this app is broken. Tokens (2 factor authentication accounts) get removed by themselves magically. The app has not been updated in months and the developers lack the brain cells to update it and fix bugs..DkrkdkVersion: 3.2.0

Works fine till you upgrade your phoneWorks fine - very basic - until you upgrade your phone. Then you’ve lost all your linked accounts with no way of recovering them, unless you forgot to wipe your old phone. I hear all the IT security professionals saying that’s a great feature. The rest of us have a life and don’t have time for this rubbish..John CanariasVersion: 3.4.0
