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.

    This app is great good add recovering codes making codes etc. I love the interface it has. It’s really easy to access. I had this app on my iPhone 6s but then I switched to android. The experience is just way better on iOS. I’m redownloading it right now. Thank you
  • Lost my backup!

    By kcamfork
    Twice. Twice this app has lost my iCloud backup. It is unconscionable that Microsoft is so incompetent with something so important as an Authenticator app. Stay far away.

    Thanks for the reply. It is a very good app and i like it. I suggest making a pop up notification if the camera is turned off because I didn’t know about it since i installed the app.
  • Update won’t let you enter your password or fingerprint to unlock.

    By Old man nigel
    What good is password or thumbprint security if the app will not allow you to do either? What a stupid and unnecessary move.

  • Horrible product

    By The review system is broken
    So I need this app to get my email. In order to get my email I need to get the code from this app to login. To get the code I need to login on the app. So I need to login here so I can be able to login so I can login.
  • Four star rating

    By theofficialethanmiller
    You lost a star because the app just signed me out of all my Microsoft accounts.

    (1)No instructions (2)Doesn’t use normal password field standards. (3)Can’t set up passwords or accounts (4)Microsoft has too many account systems that make it to cause confusion.
