Google Authenticator can now sync your accounts across multiple devices

Google Authenticator adds the ability to sync your accounts between your devices. A long overdue feature that Google Authenticator was missing out on.

The Google Authenticator app is a two-factor authentication app developed by Google. It provides an extra layer of security for your online accounts by generating a unique, time-sensitive code that you enter along with your password when you log in.

This code is generated on your mobile device through the Google Authenticator app and synced to your online account. Two-factor authentication using Google Authenticator is an effective way to protect your online accounts from unauthorized access, because even if someone knows your password, they will need access to your mobile device in order to generate a code and gain access to your account.

Sync your accounts between devices with Google Authenticator

To use the sync feature, you must first sign in to your Google account. Once logged in, the app will prompt you to select the account you want to use to sync.

After selecting the appropriate account, simply click Continue. The app will automatically back up the 2FA data of all your accounts to the cloud, and a small cloud icon will appear at the top of the screen to indicate the sync status.

If you have a second device, you can open the Google Authenticator app on it and sign in to the correct account to sync linked accounts and their 2FA tokens.
