I have been using the Google Authenticator app to connect using the 2-step verification option. With reports that Google Authenticator app is susceptible to malware attacks, is there an alternative app or safety measure to activate? The info Ive read, the exploit can take over the phone/apps & read data.. I would rather remove this app ASAP if there is other options.
thanks
Scott

Hello Scott,

Thank you for your message.

You can use Microsoft Authenticator. Personally, I found it more user-friendly and easy to use. Try that and you'll see.
