App Reviews

  • Most terrible app I ever used

    By CoolPenn
    After resetting and restoring my iPhone, I found the app becomes totally useless. It asks you to scan the barcode which you will never get since you need the push verification before getting barcode. It is a dead loop!!! This kind of workflow shows how inconsiderable the app designers are and I will strongly suggest my company to withdraw the deal with OKta. Image you cannot receive an important email outside the company network due to the mistake from the third party app. Everyone who sees my comment please suggests your company to end the business with Okta because OKta itself hurts business.
  • Great concept, but...

    By carliese
    I love that my company is integrating two-factor authentication on our accounts, but the fact that I had to install, uninstall, and reinstall this app for a twenty minute period to get the registration link to function with the app was an extreme annoyance. If Okta’s registration links actually functioned with the app once the app has been downloaded - the first time - it’d be a lot easier to handle. Push notifications also don’t always allow access as they are intended to. Maybe this needed some extra time in beta.
  • Phone App is Great. Watch app needs help.

    By TGTJp
    I love the phone app portion. It’s my go to source for my company sent push authorizations as well as my password manager OTP. I love that I can approve from my watch. Which leads me to the reason I gave this app 2 stars. The watch app is awful. You only get the first OTP. And that ONE that you get, or at least that I get, is cut off with ellipses. So in short. The OTP portion of the watch app is useless. It would also be nice if it was formatted to fit the Series 4. If they can fix this problem, this app would definitely be 5 stars.
  • Runs down battery

    By 523577532
    A client forced me to download this app, and since adding it to my phone, my battery runs down twice as fast. I've tried to change the settings to keep it from running in the background, but it's not an option. I glanced at the reviews to see whether I could delete the app and add it back when needed, but others have said that's a major hassle. It's especially frustrating since I only use the app a few times a month. I'm going to complain to my client and put in my 2 cents that they find another means of verification.
  • App Works 100%

    By AndreiWatts
    For all users complaining that the app doesn’t work, it’s most likely operators error. If your company hasn’t allowed pushed notification approval, then you won’t be receiving those alerts. Ask your company to turn that feature on. That’s what I did and now it’s working.
  • Bad implementation

    By gertzbusa1
    Apple watch implementation is essentially non-functional on Apple Watch 4. On the new Apple watch (44mm) only shows 4 digits (are you supposed to guess the last two digits?). Changing the font size only lasts for the first time you view the app, then it goes back to the latest digits. Does not receive alerts (yes I validated notifications were on). Update: Was able to receive the push to the watch by turning off send push automatically. Still don't get the alert on the Apple watch. Must open app on watch, then the push is received. Keeping the rating because of poor design and implementation. On iPhone app: Can't delete an existing profile within the app, must go to settings and clear account info, uninstalling/re-installing app, or you have to add a second profile to delete the first.
  • Excellent MFA

    By Akmullett
    App allows for both push and a soft token. Easy to self register and works like a charm. Looking at the reviews below it appears most bad reviewers are angry about their employer adding a step to access something and are taking it out on this app. Functionality is smooth. Recommend for self service enroll MFA.
  • Terrible, never works properly

    By KissNicole33
    I hate this app and I hate that I’m forced to use this at work. It never works properly. Every time I log in, I have to reset the app and completely reset my fingerprint, sometimes more than once. I’ve had to call their customer service line twice and spent 20+ minutes trying to fix these issues. This app is terrible. I would never use it, but sadly am forced to because of my job. Submitted a request to my employer to stop using Okta as it’s a time and money to waster.
  • Awful and does not work!

    By Garlic nodes
    Why our company decided to utilize this verify as a secondary security option is beyond me. I’m sure if it worked I’d be happy, however that is not the case. I can never call in or out for or request time off because this mess of an app refuses to work. It will not type in specific keys which are almost always required for access. Based on other reviews, the issues have obviously been present but never been addressed since it’s inception. Fix this crap please!!!!!
  • Still stuck lugging a phone around

    By 26333333
    Unfortunately they haven’t figured out how to make this work on cellular-capable apple watches - independent of your phone. You have to have your phone with you to get notifications/approve access on your watch. Okta is literally the only reason I have to carry a phone around all day. Please embrace modern tech, Okta. The fact that you haven't updated this app in six months says it all.
