SecurID Service Incident - RSA Authenticate app and SecurID app on Android OS
Incident Report for SecurID

Between 10:44 UTC and 11:30 UTC on October 17, 2021, the Authenticate app and the SecurID app on Android devices were affected by an issue involving the SafetyNet Attestation API. This API reported Android devices as non-compliant regardless of make and model. 

SecurID temporarily disabled the API on October 17th. Later in the day, Google acknowledged an issue with the API. SecurID resumed using the API on Monday, October 18th, after Google fixed the issue, and SecurID validated the fix.

Google has resolved and posted information on the incident.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you,

SecurID has identified an issue with the use of Google SafetyNet API. The SafetyNet API is used to check device compliance and detect rooted/compromised Android devices. As a mitigation to this service disruption SecurID has temporarily disabled the use of SafetyNet.

Customers will need to close and restart the Authenticate application :

Open Setting on the impacted Android devices, Select Apps, then Authenticate app; then select "Force stop". Or the end user can reboot the device for this change to take affect.

SecurID continues to investigate this issue.
