I've used Googles own authenticator for years now on different exchanges, games and forums. In that time i have NEVER experienced any problems what so ever with it.
I can only vouch for it Smiley

I use Google authenticator and I do not get any problem with that.
But dont forget to backup your secret key, if your phone is loss you can restore your account.

Good application, I liked it. There is a button to copy the code to the clipboard so that you do not manually enter it. And tech support quickly answers (I was given an answer (a solution) to e-mail after 4 minutes, after the request). Thanks to the developers ... Wink

Two-factor authentication is the best way to protect yourself against hacking at the moment. However, the method itself is imperfect and not very convenient.

Absolutely agree

I started using Google Auth some years ago and I learnt to backup the first ID when setting the account, after losing an account protected with Google auth

I print out the QR code on a pdf file and save it in my Keepass password manager

Which app are you referring to? Google Authenticator or Authy?

google authenticator is the safest. most people who recommend authy are newbs and probably lazy too. coinbase stopped using authy a long time ago and so did i at that time. your phone number can easily be spoofed or hijacked. i admin a really big group and people post that it happened to them all the time. i dont always believe them because there is a ton of bs in those groups, but i am sure some of them are telling the truth.

authy has tried to fix its security issues, but you have to change settings and most people do not do that. even if you do change the settings, i do not believe it is as secure. everyone uses the excuse about losing their phone to justify using authy. that is not a valid argument because all you have to do is back up your restore codes for each site when you set up google 2fa. you should back them up in multiple safe places. i use encrypted folders on flash drives.

you can set up google 2fa on as many phones as you want. you just use the restore code when you set up the other phones.

Google authenticator all day! Do people even use Authy these days?  Smiley The only time I was forced to use it was back then with gawminers scam and just deleted afterwards. All decent platforms support Google authenticator nowadays, so no doubt that should be the choice. Smiley

I'm using both - Google Authenticator and Authy. Thinking to move all my 2FA to Authy, but not sure yet.
Authy is convenient because there is a PC version, unlike Google. It is convenient to restore if you lost the phone or something else on which the application was installed.

I have used google Authenticator so far and never had a problem. I have not used Authy so cant say much.

Google Authenticator is available for Chrome browser, and was previously only available on Android

I have never used any other two-factor authentication other than Google Authenticator and I have never faced any issues with it so far in last 2 years. However, I wish there was any backup system for it in Google Authenticator itself but you have to manually change device on websites when you are replacing your existing device. Most of the platforms support Google Authenticator and I would be happy to recommend it to everyone.
