No point in downloading 1/5
By Ushio Asada
Don’t try to download this if you plan on changing devices anytime soon. You CANNOT export your accounts to any other device. The QR code doesn’t generate anything that you could use to move it from one to another
Worst App ever 1/5
Yes this is a wonderful app when it works. I’ve used it for a year and worked perfectly. My phone malfunctioned and I had to get a new one. I now cannot log into my work from home because it depended on a code. I got a new QR code and set it back up on the new phone and it still did not work because it was set up on the old iPhone, that is completely broken... HOW am I supposed to get this over to the new phone? So now I cannot get my work emails from home thanks to this.... for everyone saying how wonderful this app is, yes, I thought it was wonderful too, but it’s obvious you haven’t had to switch phones because this is a nightmare!
Can’t edit anything
Works but it’s okay 3/5
No dark mode on iOS yet and the new transfer feature did NOT work and had to re-add all of the codes. Had 20 or more OTC (One Time Codes) Was moving from Android to iOS. Otherwise the app has worked fine. Come on Google
Hi i think if i have my keys on this app to make my accounts safety’s but the Google Authenticator don’t request any password, PIN, Fingerprint or Face ID to have access to the App. Is mandatory have any security for access to Google Authenticator
Code Wrong 1/5
Hasn’t worked for me in months. I’ve attempted every fix suggested and still get a “code wrong” message whenever I attempt to authenticate via code. This thing is broken.
Please add the possibility to export into other devices.
This crap isn’t working when I was trying to log into my Discord account 1/5
By Kyle Ancill

Problems scanning QR code on iOS 13.5.1 1/5
I had to write the base code manually to make it work
It’s slowly dying. 1/5
By Redboy Jones
Half of the apps I use Google auth with will no longer authenticate. I get an invalid token error no matter how many times I try. Copy and paste or entering the code manually will not work. No updates in over a year. Find something else. This app is almost dead.
Nothing short of terrible 1/5
By D2K DuFFy
This is by far the worst Authenticator app. It never works and is just plain frustrating. Avoid at all costs
By Black Ops 2 and Modern Warfare
Locked out of ubi account cause of this hot GARBAGE. Doesnt even work
DO NOT USE! Worthless 1/5
By Trinity Zwei
The whole point of an authentication app is to make the 2 factor authentication process easy.
This doesn’t even store the information on your google account.
If you install and then reinstall on another device you will lose all access to your old authentication because it’s not linked to your google account.
It’s literally a worthless app. You might as well use a freaking sticky note and a pen to write it down. At least you might find it somewhere if you lost it. This doesn’t store any information. If you install on another device it won’t sync. This is 2020 and this app still hasn’t received any update or a hint of quality of life updates.
Do yourself a favor look for something else this app is a worthless piece of trash. It’s by Google but it’s not hooked up in anyway so it’s worthless.
The authentication is kept only locally on that singular device. If you happen to lose your phone or get a new device and install it and use it. You would expect to just load the app up and it will have your previous authentications from previous usage.
Zero you will have zero authentication saved. Your 2 factor authentication now ends up being a nightmare to recover as your 2 factor authentication is suppose to be the safety net. I hope you really don’t want that account back because you’ll never be able to log back in with this 2 factor authentication that doesn’t store anything relevant.
Do yourself a solid. Get a freaking sticky note and pen over this garbage app!!!
It gives me the wrong code all the time and I can’t get into my account now thanks a lot don’t get If you want your account
Too frustrating 1/5
It’s a useless and unnecessary “feature” that doesn’t even work
Garbage, last update was a year ago 2/5
Taken as an indicator of interest, Microsoft’s Authenticator app receives regular updates and has FAR more options. Give it a shot.
Lost all my codes 1/5
Swapped phones which led to me losing all my codes
Needs update 2/5
Android version is updated, but this One is still old and cannot import from android!
NEEDS UPDATE 1/5
The latest update on android phones is amazing. It allows for exporting and importing accounts. WHY IS THIS VERSION SO OLD. The android version is at 5.1 while this is at 3 still. Google needs to update to 5.1 on iOS asap
Cant delete old 2FA Tokens 3/5
Hi, I’m having an issue with the app when I hit the edit button (where I should be able to delete tokens) nothing happens, I cannot select any of the tokens to delete them, the only thing I can do is change the “username” line, @Dev help please.
Lack of directions, i’ll see if i can get this working today...... 1/5
Put some effort towards the users who have never used this app before. Theres no directions at all lol. Reading the 1st review on here and i got the answer i needed. Didn’t know you had to be on a seperate device to activate.
Poop ass software 1/5
This software is nothing but a soft poop. It makes me outraged how I can’t wipe all this poop off me bum with how soft it is. All Authenticator knows how to do is give me headaches and back cramps. Do not recommend for the elderly.
Why don’t you update iOS version? 2/5
The app of android has been updated for many weeks. Why don’t you update iOS version? Maybe you think iOS users are not as important as Android’s.
Now I know why it has a two star rating 1/5
By Chanel Guy
After 15 times to try and get this app to do what it was meant to do I gave up and a lot of cocktails to help me forget I ever got it in the first place .
Update programm 1/5
Please I need support to make update for this program need new copy.
By Sgt Amazing
Cannot login from different devices. Not user friendly.
Touch or Face ID security 5/5
We need Touch or Face ID security and backup on the device like (Microsoft Authenticator). Please
We want update for Google authenticator
Please look to review for the people on this app please, we want app lock (Touch or Face ID) , and we want backup on iCloud Drive
Like Microsoft Authenticator.
Please please please google company.
Good to use but no finger print thing 4/5
By person reveiw
It is amazing to use for apps like discord but not that helpful with the passwords as I have to do all of it by hand and for people who rely on there finger it’s not so good
All of my codes are off sync now 1/5
I’m not sure what happened, but now all of my codes are out of sync and I can’t login to anything. With COVID - I cant get ahold of anyone to unlock my other accounts. Please fix this bug ASAP.
Cannot import barcodes 1/5
The new android version can transfer accounts as a barcode. This IOS version cannot read those. When will that be available???
Please we want update for Authenticator app 5/5
By murtada alzubaidy
I have a problem to this app 😞
Because I can’t transfer my account to another phone ,my Iphone is broken, I need support and solutions from you please🙏🏻😢
Need Updates 1/5
This app hasn’t been updated. The other “three letter” competitor offers lots more for security app.
Phone transfers 2/5
It worked fine at first, but then I got a new phone. Now it does t I’m trying redownlaod. Let’s see how that goes.
Google can do better than this 1/5
Used the Google Authenticator app on my Android phone to export a QR code to bring my accounts into this one. It says the code is invalid!
So, I wanted to have an extra layer of protection, like everyone else, so I installed this, thinking it'll be cool. I didn’t know that it would sign me out of ALL MY ACCOUNTS. Once I deleted the app, I thought I didn’t need it anymore. There should be an option to RECOVER YOUR LOST PASSCODES. 0/10 would never do again.
Lost all data 1/5
So, I lost all my data.. so I can not access anything because the spying tyrants Google can’t make a half decent app. Use ANYTHING but this trash.
DONOT DOWNLOAD THIS. USE A DIFFERENT FORM OF 2-STEP 1/5
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GARBAGE. I downloaded this thing, I got a new phone (old one cracked), I uploaded the backup, and now I can’t get into my Facebook account because there’s no way to transfer the data over once you get rid of the other phone.
Now I am locked out 1/5
Great. I’m locked out of my Nintendo account. Way to go
Exporting Token Needed 3/5
Since Android version of the same app has this ability. It is time to bring this feature to iOS.
By lord tachanka main
This is soooooo fricking bad the codes didn’t work for me I did it 5 times and didn’t work don’t use this app .5/10 don’t reccomend
Zero Support 1/5
I ran into an error that said I needed to time sync my code. All support options said to do so in settings. One problem: there is no settings button anywhere on my app. Worse than useless garbage.
This does the job, but isn’t ideal... 3/5
By Victor Sevier
Google, you did a good job with this Authenticator. It’s not great or amazing, but it’s good enough. But as I’ve seen with another review, you do need to add Touch ID support for this app, because according to another review which I can agree with, anyone can just unlock your phone and open the app and type the code instantly without any other obstacles in their way, except the phone’s passcode to unlock the phone. That’s why I only use this as my secondary authenticator to Authy authenticator because I only use it for accounts that I want to be secure, but isn’t really personal to me such as EA or itch.io and etc, and the reason as to why is because the authenticator gets the job done, but that’s just it. An authenticator that gets the job done and does what it’s supposed to, but Touch ID support and in-app passcode support needs to be added because, if I’m gonna keep my codes safe, I’m gonna need just a bit more security than it already provides.
Terrible Authenticator 1/5
I had to get a new phone and I realized I lost all of my codes on my Authenticator, if you change phones often I highly do NOT recommend this. Even if you don’t change phones often it’s still terrible for customization and keeping codes secure
Good but could be great 3/5
Google please add folders to organize the entries, easy search as I have over 50 entries now. Add Touch ID support. Also secure back up to google drive.
Little things like this would make this app the best and most trusted.
I had to scan a QR code on my phone while using this app.... not sure how that’s possible 😂😂
Wrong Code! 1/5
Google Auth decided that it would no longer present the correct code for my 2FA with Discord. If I hadn’t been trying to delete a server at the time of this occurring I would not have even noticed that my 2FA was incorrect, and therefore it I had been logged out of my account at anytime I would have run the risk of losing my account permanently. I’m not sure if this is a bug or just a server issue, but effective immediately I’ve moved over to Authy which appears to be working just fine, it’s unfortunate that I’ve used this Authenticator for so long with no issues and now it has literally failed to do what it’s basic function is meant to be. Please make sure that your Google Auth is presenting the correct codes, don’t run the risk of losing your accounts.
Crap app 1/5
Needed something for work and this was recommended. Never got it to sync. Use authy...way better
You don’t tell us enough info to set up an Acct 1/5
Why do I have to reset my account with you after all these years? You tell me I need a “key code” to set up your app, but you don’t tell me where or how I get one. Your app is very unUser friendly.
Won’t Load, Keeps Crashing 1/5
By Neko Gray
I have Discord, Blizzard and I was trying to add Nexus Mods before this app just wouldn’t open.
