  • Simple and easy to use interface.
  • Effortless and reliable mobile app.
  • It always works.
  • It would be great if it synced directly with LastPass for authentication purposes.
  • Support for more platforms.
  • It would be great to use it on more than one device.
It serves as a valuable tool for business; employees can quickly complete 2 step authentication via the mobile app. It provides us with peace of mind that my (and my clients') information is secure.

  • Ease of use. Simply open the app and codes are there for all my two-factor protected accounts.

  • Easy set-up. I had the app up and running within 5 minutes.
  • I have not come across any areas that need improvement for my use case.
When I log in to my personal account at school, I can log in securely and quickly. It also works when I log in to Facebook or another Google account. The only time I have had problems was when I misplaced my phone. I spent the day out of contact. However, this would be a problem for any device that I have to carry even if it is on my keychain or a lanyard.
