Google Authenticator returns to Apple's App Store after glitch fixed


Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Authenticator account verification application returned to Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) App Store this weekend, days after Google pulled the app to fix a recent software update that wiped user settings and prevented logins.

Google Authenticator for iOS enables consumers to use their iPhone in two-factor authentication logins. The app generates random six-digit, one-time-use passcodes, leveraging tokens to log in to online services including Dropbox, Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) Web Services, Twilio and GitHub.

Google Authenticator version 2.0.1 "restores entries that were not displayed due to a bug in version 2.0," Google's release notes state. "Restored entries are placed at the bottom of the list." The overhauled Authenticator also includes support for Apple's iPhone 5 and Retina displays. Article
