Google’s Authenticator Application Updated to v2


Google Authenticator, the two-step verification application for your Google account, saw over 250,000 installs over its life time.  That’s a lot of downloads if you ask me!

A few days ago, the version that was available in the Google Market Play Store suddenly disappeared.

It’s replacement which is available here, shows version number 2 (2.15 to be exact) and has the following change log attached to it.

  1. New entry for Google Play, same great app
  2. Updated look and feel
  3. “Scan barcode” and “Manually add account” options moved to Menu > Add account.

To make the new version work correctly, you will need to install the new version, then uninstall the old version.
