Most folks who use Gmail or Google services probably have 2 step verification enabled and use Google Authenticator on their mobile phones. I use this heavily for alot of my online web accounts with web hosting providers like Linode, Dropbox, Github, Facebook and various other accounts important to me. However, the official Google Authenticator app has one annoying downside, you can not backup or transfer your registered 2 step verification accounts to other mobile devices so that they can exist on more than one mobile or tablet device simultaneously !. Alternative to Google Authenticator App The solution I have found is an Google Authenticator alternative called Authenticator Plus. It allows you to automatically or manually sync, backup and restore all your 2 step verification accounts to either your Dropbox or Google Drive accounts as well as manually backup to your mobile phone's SD card. It also imports Google Authenticator existing 2 step verified accounts into Authenticator Plus This means loosing or not having access to your mobile phone, isn't the end of the world as long as you have another mobile or tablet device with Authenticator Plus installed and your 2 step verified accounts imported over So who here uses 2 step verification ? Would you be able to still log into your 2 step verified accounts if you lost your mobile phone ? Do you have a printed list of backup verification codes for each of your accounts as backup ?
