    Hey team,

    Has anyone had their Google accounts hacked or stolen when using snap or other popular apps to access the Google play store?

    I mean like the apps (Google authenticate) that us hidden features tracking user log in info and passwords?

    I have used both Snap and Cobalt's Playstore and have never had any issue with my Google account and password being compromised. While I have no cause to doubt the integrity of these developers, as a precaution, I set up a separate Google account for use in these sites with nothing important going through the account.

    Do you mean Google Authenticator?

    If so, like any other authenticator app (Authy, Yubico, etc.) it only has a username and a one-time code generator; there are no stored passwords (the other factor of two-factor authentication).
