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.



  • App

    More time
  • Very Inconsistent

    And only shows up if I actually go into the app. I don’t get the positive reviews, this works 50% of the time on a good day.
  • Switching Phones

    By Trash App #1
    This is the worst app to work with if you switch phones. There are several inquires into how to over ride it and it seems Microsoft doesn’t even know themselves.

    I’m trying to enter a code for something and I go into the app and there is no place to put in a code! Waste of space
  • Great!

    It’s for free and works perfectly! What more could you ask?
  • Amazing

    By subtoCjayDaGr8_YT
    The best Authenticator out there way better than google and many many others I highly recommend it
  • Great MFA Tool

    By micchickenburger
    Authenticator is the best MFA app I’ve used to date. It’s easy to use, supports device registration for enterprise accounts, and can backup tokens! The last item is very important for someone like me who has nearly thirty tokens. Microsoft token requests go straight to my Apple Watch, which is super handy as well. Don’t even have to pick up my phone. Feature requests: • Please add a quick search since having 30+ tokens can be a bit unwieldy • Please allow customization of token images to make it easier to find the service I’m looking for
  • Peace of Mind

    Had an email security breach that allowed someone to get access to my amazon account and credit card information. I caught it early enough to stop any issues, but this could’ve prevented it in the first place.
  • Amazing

    I recommend this
  • Terrible app

    By DB223abqdftre
    This is the worst app. I pretty much have to have the app up on my screen when attempting to access our secure systems. If you miss the approval popup, you’re hosed. The Lastpass authenticator app is 100x better.
