Important:
If any sites prompt you to use Google Authenticator for two-factor authentication, note you can always substitute it with Authenticator App by 2Stable. Although they work in similar ways, Authenticator App by 2Stable is more feature-rich and allows for multi-device syncing, iCloud-backups, and have easier account recovery in case you lose your device or just want to switch to a new one.
