As of Okta release 2020.02.0, February 2020, Okta Mobile Connect (OMC) is no longer available for use. Mobile users can no longer see the 1-click Sign in with Okta Mobile option through OMC. Instead, users are redirected to the Okta Sign-in page to enter their credentials and set factors. Admins should communicate this change to their iOS-device users who are assigned Box and Workday.
Starting November 5, 2019, some end-users on Android devices running Okta Mobile 4.3.1 or below encountered the following notification when opening the application:
“Detected possible malicious activity when establishing a secure connection to Okta.”
Okta identified a root cause and has released a fix. For full details, see the incident page for this event. Admins should notify all affected Okta Mobile for Android users and urge them to update to Okta Mobile 4.3.2 for Android as soon as possible. End users should also enable auto-update in the Google Play Store.
Please see the Support Notification.
On January 1, 2020, Okta ended support for all Okta products on Android operating systems versions below 6.0. Accordingly, Okta recommends that you direct your end users to update their Android devices to a supported version (6.0 or higher).
