GAuth

GAuth is a Google Authenticator implementation for the Nokia N9 (MeeGo Harmattan platform). It allows you to use your Nokia N9 to generate the codes required to log into a Google account with two-step authentication enabled.


GAuth is written in Python and QML (via the PySide bindings) and uses the Harmattan Qt Quick Components library. It can be downloaded from the Nokia Store or GitHub - where both source code and installable binaries can be found.

GAuth supports a single Google account at a time and can be set up by following Google's standard procedure for adding an Android phone to your account. The QR code that Google provides can be scanned using the MeeScan application, also available from the Nokia Store. (Note that the current version of MeeScan sees the QR code as text rather than a URL, you need to copy and paste it into Web to activate the account in GAuth). Other apps are compatible too, including CodeCam. Alternatively the account can be manually configured using the Settings application (tap on Applications then GAuth - this may only appear after a reboot of your phone once installed the first time).

For more information on GAuth please read the README file or the help file (a copy of which is provided in the application from version 1.3 onwards).
