The reconstruction and identification of hadronic tau lepton decays is an essential requisite of the ATLAS and CMS physics program, for standard model measurements, such as the ones involving the Higgs boson decays, and for searches of new physics beyond the standard model. In the following, the ATLAS and CMS algorithms for the reconstruction and identification of hadronic tau lepton decays are presented, together with the measurements of the most important performance with $pp$ collision data collected during the LHC Run 2.
