Overall Satisfaction with Google Authenticator

We use Google Authenticator as a secondary security measure with security-sensitive sites. Each member of my team uses their own authentication app. Google Authenticator provides us with increased security, particularly with sites where increased security is necessary. Such as with financial institutions, and other highly sensitive companies or organizations on the world wide web.
  • Offers increased security
  • Verifies authenticity of user
  • Gives as sense of peace and security to its users
  • Helps companies verify users
  • Doesn't always work with every application (not sure why)
  • I'm not sure where else it needs to improve
  • Security
  • Safety
  • Verifying user authenticity
  • Kept our security safe
  • Invaluable ROI on security
They are similar but GA is more widely used and available in my experience.

Yes

Would you buy Google Authenticator again?

Yes

Google Authenticator is extremely well suited for anyone (at any time) who is signing into a site that requires higher than average security. GA verifies that you are the user by sending you a time-sensitive code to your phone. I suppose they could increase security by making you sign into the GA app every time a code is sent...
