    locked me out of my stocks when I got a new phone. And won’t sync with my new phone. I wouldn’t download this app is over ratted and not worth it 100% stay away they don’t help you get your stuff back either they kinda sit back and laugh T you thanks a lot google. Wouldn't download this app again if I had a trillion dollar invest somewhere
  • Shouldn’t a security app have the latest security?

    By Axillados
    Wake up google. Implement Touch ID and Face ID as well as as making this app iPhone X supported. I am off to Microsoft Authenticator for now...they update all the time and had iPhone X support on day 1. But I prefer to use google’s suite of apps...I am just losing TRUST.
  • Terrible UI Caused Me To Delete All My Accounts

    By Kyle1923
    The UI for this app is so poor that multiple numerical codes were being generated for each account I had associated with it. I tried deleting all of the codes and assumed new codes would re-generate when I used a service with Google Authenticator again, but instead I have to manually verify my identity for each account now. It’s pathetic that Google has so many resources and builds such an atrocious app compared to Authy. If at all possible use Authy instead of this.
  • Apple Watch support

    I wish you’d add Apple Watch support.
  • You have a serious bug

  • Please update for iPhone X

    By Gregg Benjamin
    No notch support, no Face ID support
  • No recovery options, use Authy

    By Thuggish Nuggets
    It works and served me well for a long time, but I recently upgraded my phone which meant I had to go through every website that I was using this with and disable and then re-enable two factor authentication to register the new Authenticator app. This is akin to having to change every password for every site managed by a password manager when changing phones. It’s an awful experience and wastes so much time. Unlike other Authenticator apps, this one is not protected by TouchID or FaceID and does not give you the ability to recover serial numbers for migration purposes. Luckily for one site I had used Authy instead, I opened up the Authy app and it asked me if I wanted to add the new device to my Authy account, I tapped yes, tapped allow on my old phone and everything transferred perfectly. Every app/site that was using Google Authenticator is now using Authy and I couldn’t be happier.
  • Works but no frills

    By Inetsuperman
    I normally don’t write reviews but since I use this app a lot for MFA it is not useful for multiple AWS accounts because you can’t change the name of an entry after scanning the barcode... you are stuck with the name the barcode gives you and if that account is AWS then it’s extra difficult. When you have several AWS entries where the only distinguishing thing is a 10-14 digit number that is not visible on the web login screen... once you set up multiple accounts you’re kinda stuck trying all of the TOTP numbers until one works because the names are not distinguishable and not editable upon creation. A simple edit to the account name is all I ask for. If that gets added I’ll change my rating. For now, it causes me enough extra frustration that I’m spending valuable time writing this.
  • Lost all my code
