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 for 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.

• iPhone X support
• Minor bug fixes
Opened the app to find everything had been deleted. Now I’m locked out of my accounts... User be wary.
With many sites needing logins, scrolling to find the right code is frustrating. App needs incremental text search by site name. Also, ideally, add custom coloring and/or grouping to help find the right code. And as another review siggested, require touchid to see codes.
Every single Authenticator code will be deemed invalid. This does NOT have a settings feature inside the app to Sync time to fix the issue. Unsure how this occurred. Who missed adding in settings?? That’s like a contractor building a house and forgetting a bathroom and kitchen. Be warned!!!!!!!!!!!!! Google will destroy everything you have if you use this.
this app stinks.
Stupid app can’t update when I get a new phone
Not user friendly. No walk me through simplicity. I am using to access HR Block files and forced to use this horrible app.
Hello It is better to add an option to organize accounts I have more than 100 accounts and it is very difficult to find desired accounts in that messy screen
This app really need password (touch id or face id or pass lock ) please add ! 🥺
Locked out of all my accounts with new phone. Thanks a ton 👍🏻
No problems here worked great
App was great I use it to Authenticate everything it was awesome. 10/10
Good security app. But please please have search function and backup included. I have more than 50 secure accounted saved and it is almost impossible to find one on spot. Also the concern of losing my phone is killing me.
Restored from iTunes backup and no codes have come through to my Authenticator app. How can I get my 2FA from my old phone. This was meant to work. No option to login at all on iOS version Help please !!!!
I got a new phone and can’t set up this app again so it’s locked me out of my financial software!!!!
After setting this up, I now feel less secure than I did before. I understand 2 factor authentication, but I don’t know what this app is doing. Why can’t you just text me a security code like everyone else? What is this manual entry thing? How exactly have you changed my account. Sorry, but this is the most unusable app I’ve ever seen from Google. I hate it.
I can rename codes I no longer use but cannot remove them. I should be able to remove them.
This app is too simple for its own good. I say this because there seems to be no way to reconfigure it to my new phone from the old phone as the user interface gives no option at all. Bye bye Google Authenticator.
Painful experience to use for Xero book work Thanks ATO
I assumed the account were backed up, but when I moved to a new phone I lost everything. I'm now going through a very painful process to recover my accounts. Use any other app that includes backups. Duo, LastPass, Microsoft authenticator... Anything but this.
I was once an android carrier until just today when I purchased my first IPhone. Had been using 2-factor authentication to log onto my Facebook acct, using the codes generated thru this app to complete the log in. Worked fine on my android, but with the IPhone the codes are not being accepted! Very frustrated because I am effectively locked out of my own Facebook acct! Help!!!
This app isn’t supported by google. Lets say you get a new phone... all your codes magically disappear and you cannot retrieve them. Now, all the sites i used this 2fa generator will not let me in without lengthy exams that require hours, days of time waiting. Sometimes making it impossible to retrieve account access.
The codes didn’t work now I can’t sign into my epic games account
This app takes no cloud backups. I got a new phone and lost all my Authenticators I had stored. Spent weeks submitting paper work to get into my business accounts. I love google and their products, but this thing is an absolute joke. Even if your iPhone takes backups it will not restore the codes. Why is this not synced in a personal cloud or to google directly??? I suggest you use one that has an account sync, or one that’s integrated in a password manager (like 1Password’s “one-time password” feature). Google, I know you can do better than this.
This app is absolute garbage, I can’t even get codes to play games I bought because it won’t get them. The app only gives me the codes I have from google from getting it set up on my pc to get help. If I could give this less than a star I would made this review destroy their ratings
It was quick and easy! I tried using it on a older Samsung phone before but it didn’t work. It works fine on my current iPhone.
ive been using this app for a very long time and its cool that it still works
Doesn’t work now I’m locked out of important things that I decided to depend on google for. Shaking my head as i write this. Pointing fingers as well.
It’s really really good but the reason I rated 4 stars is because u need to make this available for the Apple Watch so i would be happy if it was available for that so plz make it available for the Apple Watch
Hated but fine
Get my accounts back, you sore losers!!! I can't access important accounts now thanks to the fact that your stupid app wiped clean the 2FA for them, twice!!!
This is a crucial app when used with business applications. Apple provide all the functionality to securely store the keys in the keychain but they are still lost to the app if you iOS device needs to be replaced. Poor integration.
What the frak Google, did you not perform upgrade testing on your software before releasing it, a basic necessity for all developers. What's the point in employing the worlds best and then pull an M$ type live beta trial. FFS!!!!
Updated this morning cleaned my stored accounts. Spent the last couple of hours trying to sorted it out. Also doesn't indicate differences between accounts if same email used. Please do not update until they sort this out
Update lost all my codes! Good app though, needed an update.
I updated to the newest version, I never should do this: the authenticator whipes the accounts. Well done Google, I'm not able to access anymore.
Updating clears all previous settings, locked me out with no authenticate, otherwise very handy little app
Good app but needs iPhone 5 support.
