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 2.1.0
• Includes a link to allow users to send anonymous feedback to Google
• Displays the website associated with a verification code (for websites that support this feature)
• Minor visual improvements
• Bug fixes
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.
Works great except for...
... Yahoo. The new update does not work when I try to log into yahoo fantasy football via my google account on the iPhone. I'm sure they'll get it working soon and otherwise a 5 star app!
This app is a life saver when you have two phone numbers for multiple accounts. This is amazing.
