Google Authenticator is an app essential for multi-factor account verification, which has now received the Version 3.1 security update for Apple iOS devices. The update has been long-awaited among Apple users since Google’s update for Android in the spring.
The Google Authenticator app is a form of two-factor authentication that can be installed on Android and iOS devices, which works by issuing specialized one-time codes that enable users to gain access to locked accounts that use the service.
Google’s Version 3.1 update improves the design and usability features for the Authenticator app. The update also includes a feature that allows users to transfer personal accounts to different devices, which can prove especially useful when they're looking to upgrade to a new phone or device.
