  • Good but..

    The app is amazing but since I have both a phone and a tablet is there like a mode where I can sync the devices with the same codes because my tablet generates codes that don’t work but works for my phone. Thanks!
  • Needs TouchID Support

    A lot of reviews seem to be centered on phone transfers. Not sure what everyone’s issue was, I personally didn’t have any issues, even after a phone wipe. Just make sure you’re logged into Google on another device or a Chrome session and you can add the new phone without issues. I think it’s more of people not understanding how 2FA works. If you don’t have another device logged in, make sure to turn off 2FA before switching phones(or add your mobile phone to 2FA as well as a failsafe). However this app needs to get some TouchID support for further protection. That’s my only gripe. If you were to happen to leave your phone unlocked, someone can just open the app and get the codes without having to type in a PIN or authenticate with TouchID. This is a security flaw. I’ve submitted this issue over a year ago and here we are still without this feature (they haven’t even updated this app in close to a year). Please add TouchID support, strengthen up the security to this very useful 2FA tool. Or at the very least a PIN prompt when you open the app.
  • Easy to use; UI bugs; no iPhone X support

    I like Google Authenticator because the Google brand is trustworthy. There are a few UI bugs, the one that bothers me the most is, after scanning some QR code, the entry gets added twice, and after I remove one of them, the navigation bar disappears. It has not been updated for iPhone X yet, so there are large black areas below and above—quite ugly to look at :(
  • Worst Google product I’ve ever used

    Hard to believe it’s even made by Google. The opening screen just says ‘scan barcode’ with no explanation of what the hell it’s talking about
  • No transfer options

    I got a new phone and while the app did migrate over my codes did not. Now I can’t verify myself. This is awful.
  • Very disappointed

    I just upgraded phones and none of my accounts transferred. This wouldn’t be a big deal if I had one account, but I have 8 accounts to transfer now. Thanks google.

    My iPhone was bricked so I needed to switch phones. Google did not migrate my old codes to this new iPhone and now I cannot log into anything. Need help. Very stressed out.
  • What an abysmal interface...

    It's literally a simple list but somehow Google makes it visually confusing. Bold line in the middle vertically with two smaller detail lines above and below. What were they thinking.
