So for those of you who have yet to update the Google Authenticator app sporting this shiny logo…

…be prepared to experience Google Chaos!!

The new update (for reasons that I can not explain!) not only didn’t recognize any of my previous codes (forcing me to temporarily turn off 2-factor authentication) but also wiped out the settings I had for App.net and Evernote! 
Fortunately it took me 30 minutes (approx) to rectify everything, but honestly Google, don’t do this again lest you lose me to companies that are not-so-NSA-compliment! 😛
