i have a multi-national customer that has users in China and they are currently trying to enforce MFA but they are having the following issue.

" Where it pertains to China we do have the issue of Android Phones and the Google Play Store being blocked by the Chinese Government. How can our android users in china download the Authenticator App? Is there a bypass or another method? "

 

Do we have a way to distribute the Authenticator App for such situations?

Hi @Ayman Yassa,

According to this article it is still an issue as of March 2019

As it requires the google play store and that’s blocked looks like there isn’t a solution as of yet.

Hope that answers your question.

Best, Chris
