I’m sure most are aware that Google offers 2-factor
authentication for Gmail accounts. I
personally use the SMS verification code option. I find myself logging into multiple Gmail
accounts on a daily basis, which usually results in a mass of SMS messages
telling me what my verification number is.
Of course, I could just be diligent and delete them after I enter the
code, but more often than not, I end up just collecting them.
I decided to write a simple Android application that queries
your SMS inbox, finds verification codes, and deletes them from your
phone. The user interface for the
application is crude as hell but it does what it is supposed to do. For now, the project files are available on
. Eventually I will try to get it
up on the Market. In the meantime, you
are welcome to play with the code or test-drive the app. Enjoy!
