Google has updated the Authenticator app on iOS devices. After this update, we got a new logo and it now supports 2FA codes backup with Google Account.
What is Google Authenticator?
Google Authenticator is a security code generator. It helps us to protect our accounts from suspicious users. It provides 2 Factor Authentication to our accounts.
Why people won’t like Google Authenticator?
The reason behind the users, not liking this app is the loss of codes. Most people save the codes in the authenticator app and if the user deletes the Authenticator app or Factory Reset the device. Then they won’t be able to access their authenticator because it doesn’t have any backup feature. Users use their Google Account to Backups and Syncing across devices. Now the one-time passwords are in the cloud. So, if you lost your device then you will be able to access the Google Authenticator using your Google Account.
But as we see after the update, in iOS we can now backup codes using Google Account. So, if we delete or do the factory reset. We are able to access the Google authenticator. The sad part is, we only get this feature in iOS for now. For Android devices, we have to wait.
As the code backup is the only issue with Google Authenticator which is fixed now. So now, users can use Google Authenticator instead of its alternatives such as Duo Mobile, Twilio Authy Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, etc.

Spotify CEO Calls Out Apple and Google for Unfair Play in Music Streaming
Spotify’s CEO Daniel Ek has spoken out against big tech companies like Apple and Google. He says they both control the music streaming market and also compete in it. This he feels is not fair.
Daniel Ek talked to the Financial Times about this. He said it’s like Apple and Google are the referees of a game but they are also playing in it. He thinks this is wrong and not good for other companies trying to compete.
He also said these big companies make their own rules. This can hurt other companies trying to do business. They also have a lot of control over how many people use the internet. Daniel Ek thinks this is too much power.
Because of all this, Daniel Ek is asking the UK government to make a new law. This law will make sure that if a company is in charge of a market it can’t also compete in that market. This law is called the Digital Markets Competition and Consumers Bill (DMCC). It is now being made.
