Introducing the Thomson Reuters Authenticator: one app to verify your identity to access to Thomson Reuters software, providing an additional layer of security when signing in, helping you protect your data.

Whether using this app to access Thomson Reuters software for work or personal use, multi-factor authentication adds an extra layer of protection to your data, wherever your software or data are stored. The easy-to-use design makes it simple.

If you’ve enabled multi-factor authentication for any of your Thomson Reuters software, logging in to that software will trigger the Authenticator app to notify you on your device. Simply press approve (or use Face ID / Touch ID) to complete the sign-on process, or press ignore if you’re not trying to access the software at the time.

Software that works with Thomson Reuters Authenticator allows you to authenticate on three levels:
1) Something you KNOW (your login and password)
2) Something you HAVE (your mobile device with the Thomson Reuters Authenticator app)
3) Something you ARE (Face ID / Touch ID)

Features include:
• Automatic setup via QR code
• Support for multiple accounts
• Generate verification codes without a data connection

Not great.

This is difficult to set up in the first place, it took weeks & someone else who managed to figure it out. Also, not migrating to new devices or at least making it ABUNDANTLY CLEAR that you’ll need to re-set up on a new device & should create a backup when you initially set up is the worst. I got a new phone & now can’t set up my Authenticator, as I no longer work for the company I needed it for, but still need it to access my W2 for tax purposes next year & can’t without this stupid app. There needs to be general emergency codes or an easier way. I get it’s for security but if I can’t access my information, it’s not really helpful.

Not sure why so many rate poorly

This took all of 2 minutes to set up initially and another 1-2 minutes to set up cloud back up. All of the people rating 1 stars don’t seem to understand technology or how MFA works at all (seriously dating themselves in their reviews… bold).

Easy to use, easy to understand. If you don’t understand it, google Multi-factor Authentication. This is MORE than 2FA and far better. It needs to be secure for obvious reasons so making it so you can just get into it from a different device without having set up the backup would be silly. You’re on a new device, it doesn’t matter that the phone number is the same, all of the other information on your phone (IMSI, TMSI, deviceID, etc.) DOESN'T match so of course it wouldn’t work.

Before you leave a poor review, ask yourself if it is the tool or if you just don’t understand how to use the tool.

I’ve never had a problem

Don’t get me wrong there are a lot of quirks and bugs in TR software that are frustrating beyond belief. Then you contact support and they act like it’s functioning as designed. I find it amazing how much we all pay for this software but then go and rate it 1 star lol.

But this... this is not one of them. I use this app 30+ times a day across 4 accounts. Works every time. If you really don’t like it just enable a 3rd party Authenticator or get one of those credit card things.
