Troubleshooting Passly Authenticator - Android & iOS

Passly endpoints supports the Passly Authenticator App on iOS & Android.

We recommend using the latest Passly Authenticator on the device. Click the link above on your mobile device to verify your version installed.

Note: If you were a legacy AuthAnvil Authenticator user we would recommend switching to the Passly App. The legacy AuthAnvil Authenticator has reached it's end of life. 

 

Android Checklist 

  • Make sure internet connection is established (submit any search query in browser and watch the results). If you watch pushes to be sporadically delivered on Android platform, this might be connected with constant network drops.

  • Check device time zone / date and time are automatically set (usually available at system Settings → General management → Date and time):
