Salesforce Authenticator adds an extra layer of security to your online accounts as a strong, out-of-band authentication provider. The app sends you a push notification, and you tap 'Approve' for logins and critical actions when it's you, or 'Deny' if it's not. For even more convenience, Salesforce Authenticator can use location services to automatically verify from locations you trust, like your office or home. Better yet, Einstein can save trusted locations for you! Then you need only respond to notifications when something out-of-the-ordinary happens.
You can also get a verification code when you need one. The codes also work as a backup authentication method if you're on a plane, or have poor connectivity. This means Salesforce Authenticator also works with third-party services that use OATH TOTP tokens.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Rest assured, we go to great lengths to ensure minimal GPS use so that Salesforce Authenticator does not significantly impact your battery life.

Does a great job
I tried a number of other authenticators before I landed on this app. It was simple, clean, and did exactly what I was looking for. I especially appreciate the location option. I will continue to use and continue to recommend it to others.
The “always approve from this location” feature doesn’t work
I always log in to sales force from the same location at the same docking station on every day, and every day I check off the box that has the option “always approve from this location” yet, EVERY DAY,2-3 times a day, I have to re authenticate my account when it times out and it NEVER AUTO APPROVES. It is very frustrating, if the feature doesn’t work, don’t offer it in the app, it would be beneficial to fix this aspect or just leave it out entirely.
I just randomly tried this app and turned out to be very good for my use case. Lightweight and simple, and also has backup features. Only question is, will it remain free forever for personal use?
