Google Authenticator for Positive User Reviews

Awesome updateYour small change to the design of each MFA I have setup makes this app so much more usable. Thank you!.Version: 3.1.1

Worked for meI’m not quite sure what happened for everyone else, but I used this for Discord App’s authentication and it worked. Haven’t had a problem with it since I suppose I only used it for 1 thing? However it went smoothly and quick. So I give it full stars for just getting me through the 2 step authentication process for what I exactly needed done..Version: 3.0.1

EasyEasy to transfer to new device always reliable never had an issue using it for past few years.Version: 3.4.0

AwesomeWorks now amazingly works almost everytime really well managed easy layout great app highly suggest.Version: 3.0.0

Update to my new previous reviewGoogle updated the app and it’s back up and running! Thank you for the quick response..Version: 3.1.1

Easy to useLoveing the app, if it could only offer a backup or at least let is know the auth key to take a hard note in case we lose the phone..Version: 3.4.0

Almost perfectI’ve been using this app a while it’s great prefer it over other apps I know it hasn’t got a automatic backup but doing it manually isn’t a issue. just one thing a simple update that would make this so much more secure is adding a passcode lock or Face ID. Hopefully see this added in the future..Version: 3.1.1

Get itDon't risk your account security, enable 2-step verification for all your accounts that support it and use this app to make yourself more secure.Version: 3.0.0

Transfer to new phoneEasily done, simple to perform transfer of accounts.Version: 3.4.0

Awesome UpdateWow that was really weird. This app hasn't been updated in 2 years. I left a review today asking for an update, come back a couple hours later and it's been updated. Lucky I guess. ha. Good Update!!.Version: 2.0.0

EasyWorks great but could use a way to arrange accounts, possibly alphabetical or drag and drop..Version: 3.0.1

Handy…but…This is certainly a handy security feature that I’ve used for a while now. However Google needs to implement or integrate a system to use it with your Google account so you don’t lose codes if something goes wrong with your device and have lost passcode’s. Hopefully this is something Google will consider integrating. This is the only reason for my four stars.Version: 3.4.0

BrilliantI'm less paranoid these days, now that my email accounts have extra security lol. Works perfectly!.Version: 1.1.4.755

Doesn’t support Apple WatchIt works, but I’d appreciate it if it could support Apple Watch. It would be massive productivity increase..Version: 3.1.1

Awesome securityThis a amazing app to use thanks so much!!.Version: 3.4.0

Functional but tough on the eyesMultiple 6 digit soft tokens: check. Easy use in a busy environment? Not so much since this latest update inverted the background to dark and crammed them all closer together on screen with a reduced font..Version: 3.1.1

FinallyI can finally get rid of my old devices now and import all my codes to my current phone. Amazing app.Version: 3.4.0

Easier than Microsoft AuthenticatorDefinitely.Version: 3.4.0

Still working after update to v3.0.0.0App still working after update to version 3.0.0 - i.e. all existing 2FA codes haven’t been wiped (as experienced in an earlier buggy update). Phew! [iOS 8.4.1, iPhone 6. YMMV.].Version: 3.0.0

It’s alright... but they listened to my feedback and improved!The app doesn’t explain many of its features well and has noticeably less features than the versions on other phones. I sent a detailed feedback message about important features that were missing, and a few weeks later all the features I mentioned were either improved upon or added! It makes me happy that my input was listened to!.Version: 3.1.1

Great productCould you please update the product, so you need to use touch ID, face ID, or a password to open the application. Making it more secure, so no one can use it if your phone gets lost or stolen. Thanks, this is a critical update.Version: 3.0.0

Needs to be associated to an accountEasily able to transfer to new phone. However would be good if I can link it to my gmail account just in case I lose my phone..Version: 3.1.1

Finally able to switch devices!!!Fantastic, and works perfect! I agree with other users that cloud backup would make this perfect. But now that I can switch to my new device, awesome!!!.Version: 3.1.1

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

Thank youGreat app Everyone should have it..Version: 3.1.1

Awesome appGreat app, would be better if you could get it on iPad though.Version: 2.3.0

Finally an update!Thank you Google for bringing the much needed export option to iOS..Version: 3.1.0

Can now transfer easilyBiggest gripe when getting a new phone was transferring 2FA. Now with the export feature, no more pain..Version: 3.1.1

Finally an exportGoogle are arguably the slowest people to update their apps. Authenticator has looked and felt like something from the 90’s for a long, long time. This update has not only modernised the apps general look but added exporting, a long overdue feature. Thanks guys, you’re slower than anything I’ve ever experienced in my life but when you finally act you do a good job..Version: 3.1.0

AmazingI think this application is amazing, so innovative! Digital authentication is becoming a serious concern for active online activity. A gmail account can easily be a persons central storage repository of sensitive data and information. Well done google....Version: 1.1.4.755

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..Version: 3.1.0

Great app!It's a great app. Maybe some alternative layout options would be handy, like as a grid, alphabetical or as website icons/favicons? The ability to rename items would be awesome! It might be handy if there were also a macOS companion app which it could sync with as an alternative!?.Version: 3.0.0

Almost perfectSince export, dark mode and refreshed look has been added this is now almost perfect, the ONLY thing remaining is the Apple Watch support and I’ll have the favourite app for one time passcodes! 👍👍😎.Version: 3.1.0

Very coolCool app, basic but does the job of securing your Google Account. Poor reviews are from people that don't know what they are doing. This app can save your online life..Version: 1.1.4.755

It works wellI have used it now for a number of years across several applications and it works. Never had any problems and it gives me comfort that I have 2 factor authentication on any sensitive apps. Highly recommended.Version: 3.4.0

Made my YouTube channel aliveHelped me out for the QR scan for YouTube.Version: 3.1.1

Great to be able to export now!Working great so far, glad that finally the export option is available to make switching phones easier. Dark mode looks great! No issues at the moment..Version: 3.1.1

They fixed it!They updated the app and it works on the latest IOS again! Thanks Google!.Version: 3.1.0

Works fineI’ve seen a lot of negative reviews for this… I don’t know why, it is simple and easy to use, with all codes displayed on one page with a countdown clock, great app.Version: 3.4.0

Thank you! Finally transfer to diff deviceOmg finally I can have a backup device and transfer back in forth if needed!!!!!! So much appreciated. 👍👌👌👌👌.Version: 3.1.1

Requires correct date/time to workMake sure you’ve chosen “set automatically” for your date & time (in iOS settings), because this App relies on it being correct in order to function. Works well and is easy to setup new logins. As the number of 2FA accounts I have grows, I would like to see a better way of organising or searching for them..Version: 3.0.0

Great simple securitySo simple to use & confident of online security 👍.Version: 3.4.0

Crashes without opening all the wayHello, can you please fix this problem. I’ve been trying to get in the app and when i click on it, it just crashes. Can you please help immediately!.Version: 3.1.1

Would recommendWorks perfectly.Version: 2.1.0

PogPooooogggg chammppppp.Version: 3.1.1

Works good, how about passcode lock?Was wondering if you can implement passcode lock?.Version: 1.1.4.755

Great ProductI have being using this now for a few weeks, it works a treat, very easy to use and 100% reliable. Highly recommended..Version: 3.0.0

POGGERSIt is POGGERS now.Version: 3.1.1

Works as expectedI use Google Authenticator with a number of third party apps and Google 2FA has become a popular solution. Works exactly as expected..Version: 3.0.0

Big improvement in this versionProps to the UI/UX team. Huge improvement..Version: 3.1.1

Good fixPrevious version crashed on launch, I lost the use of the authenticator for about 3 days. The latest version works great and the new look is pleasing. Thanks for the dark mode.Version: 3.1.0

The best authenticator you can find!This app has always been the gold standard and the most recent update brings everything that was missing - dark mode and export options plus an updated interface..Version: 3.1.0

ExceptionalI Wish I had this for my bank account. This is very well designed..Version: 1.0.4

Need a search bar...The app is great to keep all your 2FA accounts. It just needs a search box for when you got a lot of accounts..Version: 3.1.1

Keeps crashing on iOS 14.2App won’t launch. It crashed every single time I launch the app. Please fix this ASAP cuz I won’t be able to login some of my accounts..Version: 3.0.1

Please include search functionGood security app. But please please have search function and backup included. I have more than 50 secure accounted saved and it is almost impossible to find one on spot. Also the concern of losing my phone is killing me..Version: 3.0.1

Is this the update we’ve been waiting for?I saw with the most recent update Google added the feature to move accounts to a new device. Previously the Authenticator app only moved Google accounts so if it now moves all accounts that are stored in the Authenticator app that would make this app 100% more useful. I only change devices every few years so I’ll need to wait to confirm but this appears to be a major update with a feature that people have wanted for a very long time.Version: 3.1.0

Thanks GoogleLove that they added the feature for transferring codes to new devices. Always so time consuming to have to deactivate and reactivate whenever you switched devices..Version: 3.1.0

New version is 100% improvement!!!Before, the authenticator was extremely buggy and started to not work at all a short time ago. The new version is an amazing improvement and is very pleasing to see that it's finally here! Well done Google!.Version: 2.0.0

Great visual update!Hello I just wanted to say that I really like the new visual update it’s very sleek and nice. I gave 4 stars just because of the inability to transfer auths to another phone or computer. This has set me back quite a few times. Nonetheless a good app!.Version: 3.1.1

Simple and reliableSimple and easy to use 2fa Authenticator.Version: 3.4.0

Finally I can transfer codes to my new deviceAt first, it was a big task for me to reset a lot of auth codes for different websites on my new device. Now I can just easily export them without no stress of creating new codes again. Big update and very very useful. Thanks...Version: 3.1.1

Not goodSometimes the ´add account ‘ button appears. Sometimes not. Very frustrating..Version: 3.4.0

Great appMy account got hacked and this makes me feel a lot more secure, very easy to use.Version: 1.0.4

Works as intendedSatisfied customer.Version: 3.1.1

Works well, good stuff Google!The process may be too complex for regular users to follow, but once you understand how it works and how to link your devices properly than the advantages become more obvious..Version: 1.1.4.755

Works greatI haven’t used a lot of 2 factor authentication apps but this one works perfectly every time..Version: 3.0.0

I love itI have a Activision account with call of duty and I’ve been worried of people hacking in to my account but with this app I no longer have to worry, it’s also simple and easy to use thank you.Version: 3.1.1

Finally!!!!!I just wanted to say Thank you for finally putting a export accounts option to move from device to device cause this was always my more preferred app but due to lack of exporting accounts couldn’t take the risk so I’ve been using the Microsoft version. I did like how there was a Apple Watch version although It was never really that useful anyway. But I hope maybe there might be a Apple Watch version of this someday if not that’s fine then. Please always keep improving this app..Version: 3.1.1

Does the job - some UI improvements neededThis app does the job and works well in that regard. However, the longer names are not fully visible which can lead to similar items being mixed up. A bit of work on the UI would solve this easily..Version: 3.4.0

You can never be too secureI love this product and the additional security that the 2 Step verification provides. If your gmail gets hacked (as mine did) you will find many accounts can be compromised. My skype account had credit added too it, a business account created, my paypal interfered with and much more. Luckily it's all sorted out now but it really made me think and become more aware of digital security. Thanks google but I think you need to promote this a little more prominently. For the people who can't get access to gmail from mobile phones etc, you obviously did not read the instructions! You have to set up special access..Version: 1.1.4.755

Works wellThe app has never let me down. It always works well. There are changes I’d make from a UI perspective, but as a utility, this app is faultless..Version: 3.4.0

Works wellIt works well, I haven’t had any issues with it..Version: 3.1.1

Great security with this extra tipIf your phone is stollen and the thief can access your phone, they have access to everything on your Authenticator unless you have set access to it via biometrics. Add biometric pass to the Authenticator and you have pretty much the best general security around today..Version: 3.4.0

Works Fine. Don’t Know Why Everyone Hates ItIt works fine. You need time set auto and the setting in the app time based. It works fine. I tested it and there is nothing wrong. Don’t know what everyone’s talking about....Version: 3.0.1

Authenticator == LifesaverDespite having to make a new sync with my google account for this last major update (like all the other reviews are complaining about), this app is an absolute lifesaver. It definitely gives an extra sense of security for using my account. Thanks Google :).Version: 2.0.1

Great AuthenticatorGreat app, has been keeping my accounts secure for year. Works with Facebook, Twitter, gmail etc..Version: 3.3.0

Needs a passcodeImagine the scenario you come out of the store while your is on the main screen your phone is unlocked and is snatched out of your hand therefore they can just get into this app know exactly what sites you use it for & and use the two factor authentication then start resetting password.Version: 3.1.1

So much betterThe app used to be a disaster, but after the recent update I’m finally able to use it and it works very well!.Version: 3.1.0

Don't believe all bad reviewsGot running extremely easy following the instructions given by google while setting up the security. A must have for any/all google accounts, even free ones..Version: 1.0.4

Needs MultiplayerXD.Version: 3.0.0

Won’t start after iOS 14.2 update, v3.1.0 of the app(UPDATE: it’s working again after app update! The App Store told me there was no update available when I first checked, but now 10 min later there is an update. Problem was Apple, not Google.) I have loved google Authenticator for my 2fa needs: SSH verification and websites. But now the app will not start. I’ve rebooted my phone and checked the App Store for updates but I’m running version 3.1.0 of the app already..Version: 3.1.0

Much better nowLooks and works much better after the recent update..Version: 3.1.0

Great appJust needs one thing... Ability to back up configuration to iCloud. That way, if the app is deleted for whatever reason, you have the settings backed up to iCloud..Version: 3.0.0

IOS 14.2App keeps crushing since IOS 14.2 update. Go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage > select “Authenticator” app > click Offload App > click Reinstall App. This will not delete contents of your original Authenticator..Version: 3.0.1

Version 2.0Updating seems to remove everything already setup in the app, beware. Minor annoyance to have to fix. When adding new services, it appears adding a second service crashes the app, Reopening the app will then let you add one, before it’ll crash if you add yet another. Repeats in a cycle..Version: 2.0.0

GrateThanks for adding the ability to transfer accounts. I was waiting for this feature in iOS..Version: 3.1.0

Apple WatchWould be greater if it had a Apple Watch capability. Can you please look into this? Save getting my phone out all the time..Version: 3.0.0

Good but needs work!Good app but once you’ve got a few Authenticators on it it’s hard to find the one you need. I would suggest you allow bold headings and possible adjustable colors. That would make it much more user friendly..Version: 3.0.0
