What is Google Authenticator?
Google Authenticator is a TOTP authenticator. Its verification code is based on natural variables such as time, historical length, physical objects (such as credit cards, SMS mobile phones, tokens, fingerprints), combined with certain encryption algorithms, and refreshed every 60 seconds. It is not easy to obtain and decode, so it is relatively safe.
