Editors' Review


VIP Access is a tool from Symantec that adds a strict layer of security to your mobile and desktop browsing through an ultimately easy-to-use mobile app. While you'll need to spend some time on the front end, understanding how it works and you'll need to add additional codes to ensure secure access, the effect of this is that it is nearly impossible for someone to gain access to your most secure accounts.

VIP Access works exceptionally well for the sites on which it is available. Using Verisign technology and powered by Symantec, it has a strong and secure pedigree, and it is supported by PayPal, eBay, Merrill Lynch, and dozens of other secure online banks, business portals, and resource management systems. Of course, because the companies that use it need to opt in and set up a log-in portal, not all of your bank accounts and online tools may use it, limiting how effective it might be on a person-by-person basis. At the same time, the app and its companion Web site tools are not very descriptive in how the system works. You'll likely spend some time digging through the tutorials to untangle the system.

That said, if you do use the services supported by VIP Access and want to ensure your security on those sites--both on your mobile device and on your desktop--is as secure as possible, we do recommend this app. Easy enough to use once you get it set up and designed for immediate access when on the go, VIP Access is a good security companion.

"High security means occasional hassles"

Very secure, very easy to set up. Has worked for me flawlessly for over two months with zero issues and with multiple-per-day connects to different sites.



Don't expect high security to work if you are refreshing your phone, rooting it, changing the ROM, etc.


Most of the bad reviews of this product appear to be written by folks who are frequently mucking about with the core configuration of their devices, either rooting them, restoring backups, etc.

Secure two-factor-authentication CANNOT and SHOULD NOT be expected to work correctly simply by "restoring system from backup" because that would mean anyone could create a clone of your authenticator simply by getting a copy of your backup and cloning your phone.

During the two months I have used it I have upgraded the OS on my phone and upgraded several apps as via _normal_ channels and everything continued to work properly.

If you are recovering from a crash or from a hack/root-gone-bad you must EXPECT to go through re-authentication from scratch, otherwise this is simply a cute little app but NOT a good security tool.

The fact that folks who have been doing this experience problems and are forced to re-authenticate is actually evidence of the strength of the security this application brings to the online arena.

"New Token generated after every iPhone OS Restore"

Very useful for securing your online access, and more and more vendors accommodating the virtual tokens from Verisign VIP access


Everytime a fresh install of iPhone OS is done (which is mostly happening with corupted backups), the new Token is generated, and that breaks all sites configured with VIP access... No way is provided to validate your identity and get the old token


I am never configuring this VIP access tokens to critical access websites until verisign provide a way to get me the same tokens when I restore my iPhones with fresh install of OS and reinstall VIP software ....common, iPhone breaks many times and a fresh install is needed... does that mean that every few months get a new Token and reconfigure all your sites again to work with new token ??? that's not right
