ID.me Authenticator is a simple and free multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution for your ID.me account, protecting your account from hackers by adding an additional layer of security.
ID.me Authenticator generates secure 2-step verification tokens on your device, including time-based one-time passwords, (TOTP), push notifications, or mobile security keys, to verify your identity.
When logging in, after entering in your password, you will be asked for an additional way to prove it is really you. Either approve the notification sent to the ID.me Authenticator by tapping ‘Yes’ to approve if it’s you (push notification), or enter the verification code generated by the app (TOTP).

Hooray it’s not Google!
App works smooth, probably the number one factor and best factor of all is it is not a google product! Website is quick for uploading documentation for verification are use for the VA in the military purposes but I also use it as a regular second factor authentication app. I’ve had the app for sometime now I have never had any issues whatsoever, never received an email making me feel like my PII is not safe or been breached, I feel safe with my information being where it’s at for verification purposes. Even Apple uses their verification for security purposes as well as the government. I wish they would implement a password generator and storing within the app would be amazing too!
Unbelievable Unverified Unemployment
This app is pathetic! I consider myself to be relatively computer savvy and am able to navigate numerous new and familiar apps and websites on a daily basis- BUT THIS-it has me going from link to link and is only allowing me to complete steps 1-3, then taking me back to the sign in screen, and then only to steps 2 and 3. I can only imagine the problems others who don’t use the internet or aren’t as familiar with these type of websites will be faced with! I’m literally ready to just give up and forfeit all of my unemployment money that I’m entitled to because this app is seriously about to cause me to vomit from dizziness after being looped around in such circles! All I want and need to do is upload an image of my DL and let you verify my identity…this shouldn’t be so complicated! If like me you’re given no other options besides, “ if you want to get paid do it, you’re smart figure it out” then GOOD LUCK!!! Apparently this one requires something more than computer skills and internet navigation competence, general knowledge/common sense, above average reading/comprehension skills and the ability to follow directions as well as more patience than could realistically be required for such a “simple identity verification that takes MOST people only a few minutes to complete” so for everyone’s sake I hope I am a very
lonely minority with all these issues!
If I could give it 0 stars I would, this app is useless. It doesn’t let you do anything after you sign in other than: add another account, setup facial recognition, or to rate the app.
The “help/Support option sends an email that they return with an auto generated reply apologizing for the delay and that you request is important to them. I’ve gotten 5 of those automatic emails thus far and it’s been holding up my DES for 3 weeks now. They claim to have 24/7 support, yet they do not. We are simply at the mercy of a system that cannot handle such a large volume of requests/functions during Covid-19 and this is hurting a lot of families. I don’t know what else to say or do at this point other than to plead for them to stop adding new requirements in the middle of this difficult time that causes further delays, I completely understand why these policies are in place but they need to properly function and they simply can’t. Another added stress to everything else happening lately.
