How does it Work?


The Xfinity Authenticator app helps keep your information safe even if someone gains unwanted access to your Xfinity ID. This extra layer of security helps prevent anyone who does not have your permission from signing into your Xfinity account. Authenticator works with our Two-Step Verification, so it's easy to approve sign-in requests with Touch or Face ID. Xfinity Authenticator is available to all Xfinity customers. Key Features • Receive a push notification when unrecognized devices attempt to sign into your account • Easily approve sign-in requests with Touch or Face ID • Verify your mobile phone number and personal email address • Securely create Two-Step Verification codes from most supported providers • Manage sign-in requests from multiple Xfinity users and third-party accounts on one device Requirements • Xfinity ID • Verified mobile phone number and personal email address Get Help Signing In • Create an Xfinity ID: xfinity.com/getstarted • Look up your existing Xfinity ID (email, mobile phone, or username): xfinity.com/id • Reset your Xfinity password: xfinity.com/password • Learn more about 'Do Not Sell My Personal Information' options at https://www.xfinity.com/privacy/manage-preference

  • Nice and smart.


    By Anvesh Paidipala
    Very cool app..It adds up a second layer of authentication to Xfinity Myaccount and I get notified through a push notification every time when I login, which I can approve with Touch Id or deny the request if it’s not me. This app makes my account more secure which has all my personal information. 👏👏👏
  • Has been working lately


    By andrewking0207
    I previously gave this app a poor review because it failed to work and I wasn’t able to login. The issue seems to have been corrected, I haven’t had trouble for a few months.
  • Another stupid app because Comcast can’t use others like google authenticator


    By dudeitsjim
    It’s great Comcast has this extra security, but in stupid way. Now I have yet another app taking up space on my phone because Comcast can’t let us use Google Authentication, Authy, or others. I have a password manager that supports 2FA for Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox, and others that support 2FA, but Comcast needs to be special. Sad, I have a folder just for their stupid pointless apps. Thanks Comcast! 🙄
  • Not bad


    By aware al
    It’s better than having one with google , facebook, and every other site that is tracking you non-stop! Maybe think privacy before convenience. Just a thought.
  • Borked on new iPhone 11 Pro

    How could the developers screw up such a simple app? For the past 20 minutes, this app has been displaying the message “We’re loading the latest version of our app. This should only take a moment.” It’s the modern day equivalent of turning your TV on and getting snow, despite the fact you’re paying 160 per month for a cable subscription. Funny, because what led me to this point was the fact that my Xfinity box is frozen and not accepting commands—so I was trying to enable Showtime Anytime. All I needed was to log on to Xfinity for authentication. When I enabled 2-factor authentication for Xfinity, I thought, “How could they possibly screw this up?” Well, now I know.
  • Stuck updating


    By arik-so
    I the the latest version as of writing, and the app is stuck “loading the latest version of our app.” It’s a freaking authenticator, what could possibly require dynamic updates‽ Just use a normal Authenticator app like Google’s. Also, the developer responses to the same issue cited in other reviews, claiming it’s fixed in the latest version, are wrong.
  • Wonderful !!!!!!


    By Drivin always
    I love the extra layer of security!! I like I know when any person in my family tries to access the account. Lovely layer of security. 😁
  • Slick multifactor app!


    By Infidelphia
    Didn't expect a security tool from Comcast to be so nice and easy to use... Fantastic option for anyone who wants to safeguard their account.
  • Completely locked out


    By JRS17
    Can’t click the more options tab. Completed locked out of XFINITY home. This Authenticator won’t allow me on any app because the page with the more options tab is stuck and nothing is clickable and now way to continue. Cancel just cycles the broken process over.
  • Useless... crashes during registration


    By Travelpro85
    This app is absolutely useless... it crashes while you try to register your device... tried 5 times and probably flagged by xfinity as a sign in security threat by now because they can’t fix their own products
