The CA Mobile OTP app is an all-purpose one-time passcode (OTP) generator that provides an extra layer of security when you shop online or access online accounts. With CA Mobile OTP, you use your mobile device to generate a passcode that can be used to verify a MasterCard or Visa electronic payment transaction, or to login to an online account. This app supports EMV standards when generating the passcode for authenticating MasterCard and Visa online payment transactions. CA Mobile OTP also supports HOTP standards for generating one-time passcodes to use when authenticating to Web portals and VPNs.
How does it work?
Your card issuer, for example, your bank or the organization where you have an online account, must use the CA Technologies authentication solution. You must sign up for the additional security with them. They will give you a link to download the account onto your device, along with your userid and an activation code. You will run the CA Mobile OTP app on your device and enter the information provided by the organization to activate OTP authentication with this organization. You then choose a personal PIN that will be used to generate an OTP for this account. The OTP can be generated without a connection to your mobile network allowing you to authenticate any time, anywhere using the one-time passcode generated on your device. When you are prompted to authenticate to your online account or to provide a passcode to shop online, you simply run the CA Mobile OTP app, enter your personal PIN, and an OTP is displayed on the device. You then enter the OTP into the application prompt to authenticate your e-payment transaction or to login to your account.
CA Mobile OTP was updated to support account migration. This was preparation for the new CA Mobile Authenticator which includes both Push and OTP functionality. The CA Mobile OTP app continues to work without issue until users install or upgrade to the latest CA Mobile Authenticator and accounts are migrated to that app. After account migration is completed, the CA Mobile OTP app is no longer used and users will access OTP features in the CA Mobile Authenticator. A message to the user indicating the account migration status is displayed.

I have to use this for work, and I’ve never had an issue 🤷🏻♂️
App is missing QR scanner to add account
Users must type in server url
Overall it's Good
Super easy to use. Deleting accounts isn't very intuitive, but easy enough to figure out. The major complaint with the app is when you try to create a PIN and leave the application, the account gets created without a PIN. This makes the account unusable and now you have to delete it and start over.
