Microsoft Authenticator App 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.

Microsoft Authenticator App Reviews

  • Simple and Effective

    By Goatllama
    Has always worked flawlessly for me. Would be great to have the option for an extra passcode lock for the app, though.
  • One star

    By N328KF
    One star due to useless update summary.
  • Resets every update!

    By BanuGhassan
    Since inception whenever I have all accounts with their verification setup and on standby... here comes and update, Great! Open to see app, everything gone and have to redo it all over again. Every update!? I stopped using this app and found an alternative from a company that sounds like booble.
  • How about an Apple Watch component?

    By Delta5
    Does what it’s supposed to do. How about adding an Apple Watch version too?
  • Not Unique

    By DK1943
    This app cannot coexist with Google’s Authenticator. Upon installing, each overwrites the other.
  • Works as advertised

    By jimct
    We use this as MFA tool for logging onto our corporate network. Flawless and much better than the old text codes as no network connection is needed
  • Needs key generation

    By System2600
    Needs to be able to generate a key to work with more services. Similarly to how the Symantec app works.
  • Worthless

    By jmstacey
    Any app that says they’re constantly improving the software but don’t summarize changes are usually bull shitting.
  • Not secure

    By sixxt
    This app works. But it is not secure. If I get a MFA notification on my lock screen I can allow the authentication without unlocking my phone. Fix now please
  • User-friendly and useful app

    By ethancdaniel
    This is a very useful app for two-factor authentication. It’s as intuitive as possible and I’ve never had any issues with it.
