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!
I just am trying to verify who I am for unemployment
I don’t know yet how this is going to turn out but so far I have been nothing but confused with the site how it works and really what the government or state room unemployment office gets from it . I’veProcrastinated doing this for three days now and finally today have to get it done at first the main website had me stuck on shop I’ll think of a website that helps somebody know that you were you wouldn’t have a random weird shop. And now I spent the last hour trying to figure out where I go to get started and what I actually need to upload her deals to that I can verify who I am and upload a document saying exactly that to unemployment so I may get my benefits. I have yet to figure out where to actually go and be prompted what it is that I exactly need :( I’m gonna explore the site more and hopefully find where it is I’m supposed to be or just write the support an hopefully can be helped in a timely matter! Good luck to anyone eles who is also struggling!
