Overall Satisfaction with Google Authenticator

Our company is doing some of the legwork to get some of our accounts set up with two factor authentication and make them more secure for our employees. Google Authenticator is at the top of our list as an option to get this done in the most seamless way.


  • Great user interface upon login.
  • Adding accounts is simple.
  • Love the QR code feature.


  • The way it's set up you always need your phone on you.
  • Lose your phone and you won't be able to get your authenticator account info back.
  • 2 factor authentication.
  • Available on different platforms.
  • It's made our employee accounts more secure.
  • It has reduced password resets and troubleshooting with staff.
LastPass is the most similar to Authenticator that we're currently using, but I honestly wouldn't say they are all that similar. Authenticator is another step up, security-wise, from password managers as far as internet safety goes.

Do you think Google Authenticator delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Google Authenticator's feature set?


Did Google Authenticator live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Google Authenticator go as expected?


Would you buy Google Authenticator again?


It's a very simple idea and it's executed well. It's easy to add accounts and once you get it set up and use it you'll be surprised how much you rely on it. Authenticator is available for iOS and android, so any and all of your employees should be able to use it with little setup and little training needed.
