Description

Sign in is easy, convenient, and secure when you use Microsoft Authenticator. Use your phone, not your password, to log into your Microsoft account. You simply have to enter your username, then approve the notification sent to your phone. Your fingerprint, face ID, or PIN will provide a second layer of security in this two step verification process. After, you'll have access to all your Microsoft products and services, such as Outlook, OneDrive, Office, and more. Microsoft Authenticator also supports multi factor authentication for work, school, and non-Microsoft accounts. The app provides a second layer of security after your password. When logging in, you'll enter your password, and then you'll be asked for an additional way to prove it's really you. Either approve the notification sent to the Microsoft Authenticator, or enter the verification code generated by the app.  Sometimes your work or school might ask you to install the Microsoft Authenticator when accessing certain files, emails, or apps. You will need to register your device to your organization through the app and add your work or school account. Microsoft Authenticator also supports cert-based authentication by issuing a certificate on your device. This will let your organization know that the sign-in request is coming from a trusted device and help you seamlessly and securely access additional Microsoft apps and services without needing to log into each. Because Microsoft Authenticator supports single sign-on, once you have proven your identity once, you will not need to log in again to other Microsoft apps on your device.

    Best Authenticator app but needs FaceID to reach its full potential on the iPhone X or newer.

  • Forcing to use MA is violation, “ROWDYSHEETER MS”

    Why the security not within office365? Separate app for authication is LOUSY design. Forcing to use MA is violation, “ROWDYSHEETER MS”.
  • Makes migrating to new phones a breeze

    At first I didn’t like that I needed to use this specific Authenticator for Microsoft accounts. You can’t simply scan a QR code like the current industry standard with a Microsoft account. However after migrating all of my other tokens into this Authenticator it has worked great. I recently purchased an iPhone XR and the Microsoft Authenticator migrated all of my tokens (not just Microsoft related) into the new phone (and in sync) with no effort at all. -1 Star for not adhering to current industry standard for Microsoft accounts and using QR
  • Disaster= renders phone unusable!!!!

    Initiates a loop with endless requests to enter password or use app and new password requests repeatedly interrupt app. Then loop starts again. It is secure by rendering your accounts I useable by anyone. I have tried to delete Outlook but that doesn't work either.
  • Not keeping me signed in

    I want to stay signed in on Skype using Firefox 63.0 Stable on Windows 10 build 17633, but I just keep getting signed out of Skype just a few seconds after I approve the request. Microsoft, please fix this!
  • Works, but push authentication stopped working

    Previously, the push authentication worked well with my iPhone and Watch combination. Now out of the blue, it stopped working, making it less useful than usual.

    This app will not send push notifications to approve. I’ve gotten only it twice to send ever since I switched phones. It did work on my old iPhone but now even the 2 times I did get a push notification, it still didn’t let access my email.
  • Solid. But slow. And please allow iOS12 to pass thru OTP

    Overall, it’s a quite decent product. My company makes me use it in combination with office 365, otherwise I don’t think I’d voluntarily use it. However, I would be significantly happier with this product if it allowed iOS12 to pass through the OTP and automatically paste it into the app without me having to type it up. Most other apps can do that - surely it’s not that hard to implement. Thank you
