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.

  • Nice but need little feature

    By Vic@395004
    I really liked this app but if you can support Apple Watch that will be good.
  • Notification

    By MikeW2k
    I’ve stopped receiving notifications. I have to open the app and copy the code and enter it into the login page. I used to get a notification I could just accept to login.
  • Does not work amore

    By WhiteTigreNV
    After the last update it does not notify my device that my account is being logged into. So I am unable to approve the logon.
  • Great job on the update!

    Great update with the backup option!
  • Better than Google

    By High on lifeeee
    Love this app. I started using it on 5-3-18. World great and no issues. Backup in iCloud is perfect. Feature request: would be even better to have TOUCH ID option to open the app for added security. Issues: there would sometimes be no notifications or a delay, both in the app or when the phone is locked.
  • Great But

    By Dookie 2x
    Love it for how it works as a remote Authenticator for OneDrive & Outlook, and especially for work to authenticate with TouchID when logging in to work resources. BUT - really frustrated by how you lose 2 factor or step linkage to services when you have to restore your iPhone (either from having to erase or moving to a new iPhone) and now I’ve lost login access to some services I used it with for 2 factor. One in particular doesn’t even offer email temporary recovery so I have to completely wipe my settings and information to re-establish access.
  • Backups are here

    When I try to log into my outlook email it asks me to tap the code in the Authenticator but when I open the Authenticator it opens with a different number. I entered my outlook info in the Authenticator and it doesn’t work
