This app turns your iOS or Android mobile device into an authentication device instantly. This is an innovation in software authentication that lets you create one-time passcodes from the convenience of your smartphone or tablet. Here’s a full review of this app.
By creating passcodes, the app for Android devices and iOS gadgets facilitates secure remote access to web-based and corporate applications. It combines the security offered by effective two-factor authentication with simplicity, ease of use, and convenience of One-Time Passcodes. Interestingly, it provides convenient access control and effective identity protection for VPNs, SaaS and Citrix applications, Terminal Server, customer-facing online services (including eLearning education portals, eBanking sites, and sites with healthcare records), and Outlook Web Access.
Note that for you to use this app, you’re first required to register it with the relevant credentials of enrollment. Your specific administrator should offer all the credentials to you.
Fortunately, smartphone users across both platforms can enjoy the features and functionality offered by the app. The Android app requires Android version 4.0 and over, while the iOS version works with iOS 6.0 and up (runs on iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone).
Ease of Use
This app is quite easy to use. However, the experience can be much better with an overhaul in the user interface. Still, the iOS and Android app remains convenient, and it works perfectly on my device. Notably, I’ve never experienced any lags or crashes, and lots of other users have similar remarks.
The latest version of this app brings along a couple of bug fixes and an enhancement that makes menu items accessible from the action bar. It’s nice to see that the developers still take such care of the app.
The iOS and Google Android app needs significant improvements in the design and user interface. However, the design is still relatively simple, making it easy to understand and navigate. These attributes matter and make the app befit the business category. Just a little tweaking will go a long way in making this the leading app in this category.
You can install the app for free. Additionally, you don’t need to worry about the cost of in-app purchases as there are none offered.
- It’s free to install;
- No expenses of in-app purchases;
- Available on both OS platforms.
- Dull user interface;
- The sign-up process should be a little more robust;
- The number keys aren’t displayed clearly.
SafeNet MobilePASS is a must-have business tool due to its numerous security features. Combined with its ease of use and convenience, the app comes out among the leading ones across both OS platforms. The weaknesses cannot go without mention, and they significantly impact the convenience offered by the app. However, with the regular updates, you can be sure that the issues are handled step by step. I like what the app has to offer, and I recommend that you install it on your device.
