Google Authenticator works with 2-Step Verification for your Google Account to provide an additional layer of security when signing in.

To use Google Authenticator, you need to enable 2-Step Verification on your Google Account. Visit http://www.google.com/2step to get started.

Works but I'd prefer an app-specific password
This app works just fine but I don't see how it is better than SMS password verification.
With this app I have to enter my account password on my cell phone. This encourages me to use a smile password. So, I want an app-specific password for the phone and 2 factor authentication for account login from a computer.
I wonder if Google would consider using RSA SecureID. I already use this for work and it would be nice to have 1 fewer app.
Simple to use, keeps the core of Apple. Feels great. Necessary for multiple passwords, Perfect when you have information on you at the ready.
Good app for extra security if what others say about losing data when updating please fix I don't want to lose my account
