Google Authenticator works with 2-Step Verification for your Google Account to provide an additional layer of security when signing in. With 2-Step Verification, signing into your account will require both your password and a verification code you can generate with this app. Once configured, you can get verification codes without the need for a network or cellular connection. Features include: - Automatic setup via QR code - Support for multiple accounts - Support for time-based and counter-based code generation To use Google Authenticator, you need to enable 2-Step Verification on your Google Account.

I set this up for my discord account and I login out of the authentication app and couldn’t log back in and now i cant get back into my account
Do not listen to this individual saying it’s easy to transfer 2Step Authenticator to an additional phone. I see clearly that my phone is tied to the app and have “0” codes transferred to my new device. This is ludicrous to say the least. Google needs to get there act together.
The other reviews says it all, this is a very poorly developed app, I WOULDN’T recommend!
Downloaded it, scanned it, gave me a number and boom!
I’ve reset the numbers more times then I can count to ry and get it to work because of this I’ve lost access to my Nintendo account I’ve copied and pasted 1,000 times and nothing seems to work horrible process and flawed system
I haven’t had much issues with this app, but I had to reset my phone, and when I reinstalled the Google Authenticator and did the manual entry thing again, the code that it displayed (to log into Discord) didn’t work. It is the same account and everything. I would love if the codes still worked when you reinstall it. I’m not one to use backup codes.
You'll lose everything when you move to a new iPhone
Come on Google, get your sh**t together. You’re frikken all mighty Google, but about every Google app has these same issues and you don’t seem to care. Just a lame statement. “Google’s page 𝘚𝘈𝘠𝘚 that they are working on it”. Meanwhile back at the ranch, I’m needing my email NOW!!!
Very confusing to add a new device
Every time I open the app now, it crashes before it even loads. Please fix this. I can’t access any accounts that require two factor with it not being able to even load. Otherwise it’s useful.
