To reinforce the security to access your Google user account on mobile devices, the search engine giant offers us Google Authenticator APK, based on the creation of two-step verification codes. If you want to improve the security of your account, don't hesitate to download Google Authenticator Android.

What is two-step verification and how it works

What? Still don't know what two-step verification is? It's a system that forces the user to carry out a second verification step when logging into an account, apart from the traditional password, making use of a code generated by the app.

It works as follows once you download Google Authenticator Android:

  1. Step 1: log into Google, providing your username and password as you usually do.
  2. Step 2: with this app, you can request a second code which you'll have to provide every time you try to log in.
  3. Step 3: you can mark a device as trustworthy so that you're not asked to provide the code each time you use it. In any case, that won't leave you without protection because you will be asked for those codes if you access from any other device.

Once you've generated the code, if you try to access your user account from any device, you'll be asked to input the code that has been generated.

An extra security layer so that nobody can access your account without permission.
