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 of a network or cellular connection.
- 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. Visit http://www.google.com/2step to get started.
Requires iOS 5.0 or later.
What's New in Version 2.3.0
* Minor UI refresh with support for iOS 8 and the iPhone 6 Plus.
* Small bug fixes.
You've out done it again Google!
This apps authenticator is so easy and fast, way convenience (no more annoying text's ringtone or vibration for me). I'm so glad I decided to give it a try. I would give a 10 stars if there is one ;). If you haven't installed on your device then you're missing out.
Failure with Microsoft
App was supposed to generate numbers that would work for two-step authentication for Microsoft accounts. The generated numbers looked great. Really slick. Just one problem. The numbers did not work. So in my case, perhaps user error on my part although this looks so simple as to be fool proof, Google generated codes that just didn't work. Not sure why Microsoft didn't recognize the codes Google generated for it. But I had to two-step authenticate a different way.
I saw somebody using Google Authenticator on TV and downloaded it, ever since I have been using it. Overall, it works excellently but I would like if a fingerprint or passcode option was added along with landscape mode.
