Google Authenticator is a software designed to manage authentication in two steps, developed by the American firm. The two-step verification for your Google Account provides an additional layer of security when you sign in.
Google Authenticator is software that protects your account with additional authentication systems. If you sign in to your Google Account on a third-party device, you'll need to enter a code that you'll receive via a text message or a Google application. In the application, you will have a constantly updated, two-factor (2 FA) authentication code that you can use without sending it via SMS. When you sign in to the account, enter this code and you're done. This two-step verification system allows you to sign in to your Google Account not only with your password, but by generating a verification code that you can get with this application. Google Authenticator gives you a 6-digit number that the user must give when authenticating, in addition to their username and password.
Google Authenticator is therefore a security measure against account hacking and malicious software and viruses. The advantages of an application such as Google Authenticator, in addition to not having your account hijacked, are that you have all the codes in a central location and that they are available at all times, even when your phone is offline.
