Features of AWS Mobile App
To have access to the AWS Mobile App, we must have an existing AWS account. Simply create an identity utilizing the account credentials and select the region in the menu. This app permits us to stay signed in to multiple identities at the same time.
For security reasons, it is necessary to secure the device with a passcode and to use an IAM user's credentials to log in to the app. In case the device is lost, then the IAM user can be deactivated to prevent unauthorized access.
Root accounts cannot be deactivated via mobile console. While using AWS Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), it is recommended to use either a hardware MFA device or a virtual MFA on a separate mobile device for account security reasons.
The latest version is 1.14. There is a feedback link in the App's menu to share our experiences and for any queries.
