RSA Announces Release of Authenticator App V4.2 for iOS and Android

The SecurID Authenticator 4.2 for iOS and Android started to be released on January 25, 2023, in an incremental manner on both Apple and Google app stores.

Since V4.1, the full name of the app has been changed to "SecurID Authenticator". The label appearing under the app icon on your devices has been shortened to 'Authenticator', aligned with industry standards. Users can continue to search for 'SecurID' on both app stores to download it.

4.2 is an update to the existing Authenticator 4.1.X app. Users’ credentials will remain installed and working once the update is completed. Users can perform the same actions with the new app as they did with the old app. Neither administrators nor users need to retrain. 

The SecurID Authenticator 4.2 release includes the following main new features:

  • QR code as a step-up authentication method: If this method is enabled by their organizations, users will be able to authenticate to My Page by simply scanning the QR code from their device or within their registered Authenticator app.
  • Credentials migration from RSA Authenticate app: Users of RSA Authenticate app who install and then launch SecurID Authenticator 4.2 will be offered to migrate their existing credentials from the RSA Authenticate app to the SecurID Authenticator app. Users can decide to do this migration at a later time.
