User reviews of Google Authenticator

    Works Perfectly

    Most recent reviews suggest that this app is bugged, though the latest patch must have covered everything, or it’s something out of Google’s controls. As long as you read directions and don’t work ahead of yourself, using the Google Authenticator with whatever it is you are using it for is one of the easiest and safest ways to log in to almost any network or software. 5 stars because there is nothing wrong with it.

    Big problem transferring to new iPhone iOS11.x

    New iPhoneX unlocked. Backed up my older phone on iTunes and then started the process of restoring the data to the new phone. Google Authenticator. The app refused to install. Warning error [ Unable To Install “Google Authenticator GA” . The app is no longer available in the App Store”. This is actually not true, the app is still available in the App Store. - Ran the latest iOS11.2.2 on the iPhoneX. I wiped the iPhoneX to a factory reset - Ran all app updates on the iPhone6S for all apps. - Ran the latest iOS11.2.2 on the iPhone6S - Did a backup on iTunes twice for iPhone6S - Then did a restore on the iPhoneX . Same problem not able to use “GA”after all that. If I delete “GA” on my iPhoneX and reinstall from the cloud on new phone it opens, but lost all my 2FA sites. This is awful. This is essential for my work security and personal banking. Feature request. Please allow groups so I can sort out 2FA sites by personal , work, banking. Using GA so often that the list becomes too long

    How do you remove an entry?

    How do I remove an entry?!! The edit button at the top right shows me a selectable list, but none of the items in the list can be selected. This is on iOS 13.1.1. It looks like a typical Google app. The original developers likely went to another team, since there no glory in working on an app after it’s been released. If you want to be promoted you have to show leadership, which is not in maintaining an existing app. It’s really sad, since a lot of people rely on this little app to secure their accounts. Including people that work at Google!

    It’s an “okay” app. Needs some improvement.

    The Google Authenticator app is a convenient app to use for Two-Factor-Authentication. (2FA) However, there is still some work to be done to the app. First of all, we need biometric authentication before you can open the app so that if you leave your device unlocked, someone can very easily access the 2FA codes without much trouble. As someone else pointed out, this is a really big security hole that needs to be dealt with. But other than this, it’s a pretty good and simple little app. Just needs a bit more security put in.

    A serious pain when switching phones

    I had this problem on an earlier version of this app. You get a new phone, it is back to square one. There is no restore or saving of codes. It is a great app other than the fact that it becomes a nightmare if you get a new phone or have to restore your phone. They need to incorporate some kind of save system so you don't have to painstakingly disable and reenable every single 2 step verification you had previously.
