SecureAuth Authenticate (iOS): Push Notifications and/or Login Requests Not Displaying After iCloud Restore

    Applies to:
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • On Premises
  • SecureAuth Authenticate App Version: All


    When restoring the SecureAuth Authenticate app from an iCloud backup, push notifications and/or login requests do not work. Time-based, one-time passcodes will work without any issue. This issue may be seen more commonly with the release of the iPhone X.


    The push notification token that is stored is unique to each device. When the app is restored from a backup, it uses the previous device's key, which causes the push notifications and/or login requests to not be displayed.


    Delete the SecureAuth Authenticate app from the device, and re-install the app from the Apple App Store.
