Hi dear people!

I'm using the Google Authenticator on a smartphone to secure my account on bitcoin.de
On MGox, I could also use the same system, but I wonder if this is possible?

When I look in my smartphone, it stands "bitcoin.de" and I cannot see any option to select another site.
As I installed this a while ago, the question might be stupid, but I'm worrying that IF I use the Authenticator for MGox, I will not be able to use one of the both platfoem.

Anybody here having experience with the use of Authenticator for different website?

Thanks for your reply!

Authenticator handles multiple accounts so should be no problem with that (and yes I have tested it with more than one website).

With CIYAM anyone can create 100% generated C++ web applications in literally minutes.

Thanks Ian,

do you have then to each time declare which site you are using in your smartphone or the popping number is valid for both sites?

Thank you!

You can add more sites and it just shows them all in a list each with their own number.

It shows multiple numbers on the main screen (mine currently has 3).

You just need to make sure you add each new account with its secret key (can be done via QR code assuming your phone has the software).

the authenticator only works with system implemented in the sites who generates time or counter based codes. so the site should have compatibility.

i am using authenticator successfully with the mt. gox. need any assistance, please PM me.

you should be able to set multiple 'accounts' up on g-authenticater.  There is an option in the app to do so.  I've created a couple one accidentally for the same account on eclipse pool but luckly only matched one.  I then deleted the one I did need to use.  You should be ok as long as you tie in the correct codes when you sign up.  

I have no experience with setting up on MtGox but it should be the same as g-authenticater is developed by google.
