ForgeRock Unveils Next-Gen Authenticator App With New Biometric Lock

ForgeRock, a global leader in digital identity, has announced the availability of its next-generation Authenticator app.

The redesigned app offers a faster and easier login process and offers improved navigation, in addition to new biometric lock options to meet a user’s security needs without diminishing their experience. The app integrates with native iOS and Android security and is now available in the Apple App and Google Play stores.

Authenticator app functionality is also provided as an SDK that ForgeRock customers can use to enhance their own mobile apps with the registration and authentication features they provide to their consumers. These include multi-factor authentication, time-based one-time passcodes (TOTP), passwordless login, and mobile device push notifications.

According to 451 Research, MFA authentication and passwordless adoption continue to rise due to several factors, including an increase in stolen credentials and phishing attacks, which often contribute to security breaches companies, the increase in work-from-home policies in the wake of the COVID -19 pandemic, and the adoption of the Modern Authentication Standards.

MFA and passwordless authentication significantly reduce the attack landscape. Our new app is designed to reduce the number of steps users need to take to authenticate without compromising security to make the login experience both simple and secure.
