Released by Salesforce.com, inc, Salesforce Authenticator is a solution that provides additional security through two-step verification. Available for Android and iOS, the utility unfortunately does not have a Windows PC version.
Easy to download on mobile, Salesforce Authenticator is a smart two-factor authentication tool that adds an additional layer of security to protect Salesforce account and data. This means you can take advantage of simple, intelligent two-factor authentication solutions for free to strengthen the security of your Salesforce deployment without sacrificing the user experience.
The application sends you a push notification and you have to approve critical logins and actions if you are the source of the notification. And refuse if you are not. For added convenience, the utility can use location-based services to automatically check from trusted locations like your home or office. Better yet, it can save the trusted locations for you! All you have to do is respond to notifications when something unusual happens. Salesforce Authenticator offers enterprise-class security, yet it's simple and convenient for end users.
The solution makes it even easier for employees to access business-critical applications via simple push notifications. You can also get a verification code when you need it. The tool also has a restore and backup function that is very useful when your cell phone is lost or when the user wants to use another device.
