Don’t listen to these faulty reviews haha.. this app is so helpful when I need to validate 2 factor authentication. There are easy steps to use this and I definitely recommend this to everyone!

Honestly what’s wrong with this people?

Come on people! This app can literally be navigated by an infant, yet I’m seeing One star reviews saying they are having problems navigating an app made with the complexity of an IPhone button interface. There are like 3 thing you can choose in the main screen, of which one doesn’t matter. The other is for scanning, and another for editing already scanned barcodes/QR code. Literally all your codes are in the front page, and if you lack brain power then that’s on you. Any ways app slaps, and it works with a simple finesse, that even the dullest of knives can use( or at-least most). If you need to transfer your account info, then look at the others program’s FRQ. Since it is not google’s problem you broke/lost/replaced your phone since they didn’t ask you to get the 2-step verification the other company. And I know I’ve replaced my phone 3 times.

I can’t stand being force fed to use apps that I don’t want to use.

I could see it working, but it just doesn’t

This app is incredibly frustrating to use. When the stars align, and the planets enter retrograde, you just might get your code to work, and from there it’s easy. But getting to a point where the code will work is a nightmare. I cannot stress to you after using this app and logging into an account 34 times, yes, 34 TIMES, how irritating this app can be. Don’t try and tab out of the app, open up another browser and put in the code; for it will have already changed the code. Even if you are fast enough, it will still change it. I attempted to remedy this by turning off time-based codes, to no avail, because it just puts it on an even shorter timer where the numbers appear for about 3 seconds, then turn into dots. When you click on them again, you are given new numbers. This makes it not only a time constraint to pull off a code, but an EXTREME hassle. I don’t understand why we left the days of having a security question. Instead we are forced to suffer through clunky apps that are barely functional in the easiest aspects. Not to mention, I don’t know how they made such a simple menu so confusing (it’s not like I’m old either, I am far from clueless about technology and this app with about 4 buttons STILL confuses me.) I would absolutely not recommend this app to anybody. This was a fantastic idea in concept; but it was executed incredibly bad.

I recently got a new number and now I am trying to update my old number, I need to log in and it asks me for the code. So I go to the app and type in the code and it keeps saying it is not working!!! Therefore I can not get into my account. I HIGHLY suggest you do not use this app and just create a very strong password because this is ridiculous, how am I supposed to get my emails now if the code is not working and my number is my old number that isn’t working anymore on my phone.

Easy to use

I read a review that said that it would be better to implement a touch id or pin to access the app, this would be nice since leaving your phone unlocked will give anyone access to accounts, other than that I think it's great. They even give you access to codes in case you get locked out of the app

dlprz's Review of Google Authenticator

Reviewed on 9/29/18 3:34 AM

I have the game war thunder and it tells me to use this app to sign in yet while I’m putting in the code it says that it is wrong or the time is wrong. So when I go to the gajin website for help it’s tells me to go to the main settings and sync time or something like that, anyway, there is nothing on the app that says to sync time or do anything except Send feedback, Terms of service, Privacy policy, and Legal notices. So either there is something wrong with their information on how to fix it or there is something wrong with this app.

Find another means of 2FA
