Google to Fix its Authenticator iOS App Update to Prevent Data Loss

Google Authenticator iOS App Update Wipes Stored Account Data

The latest news is that the iOS security app known as Google Authenticator has proven to be a pain in the neck for many users. While Google had all the right intentions at heart, the way to hell as they say is paved with good intentions. The problem with the two-code system of account protection was that it wiped all alternative account data by default the moment you installed it on your device. All other accounts underwent a complete clean slate state of blank nothingness when you use this so-called shield against hackers. 

So the question to ask right now would be what is to be done? Google is working on the problem. The glitch in this app has gotten on quite a few nerves. The user base is in a bad mood for not being warned beforehand of the loophole in the mechanism. A large number of the users have raised quite some angry tweets over the issue

Currently, the dirty bug that has infected the Authenticator has to be removed and it requires surgical skills. At present, the Google Authenticator is available for free download from the App Store. But the warnings and precautions have come a little too late.
