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.

  • Excellent Authenticator

    By Tinker683
    I try and use this as my primary Authenticator app. It works beautifully and have had no issues with it. It also backs up to iCloud so it’s easy to restore too.
  • This app is great

    By MyExDumpedMeForATrashCan
    So a few months ago I got my Xbox account hacked and I was really sad about it because I had lost a lot. Including my games ect. But then I found out the hacker stole my email and put it in this app because at the time I didn’t have this app. So that was a good lesson for me to use this app always and it’s absolutely fantastic because I have a lot of emails like work, school, and gaming of course but I feel like all my emails are super secure also I like the fact that when trying to log into another site with your email you have to get permission from the Authenticator app before you can do anything so if someone gets ahold of your email then they can’t log in at all.
  • All my authorization keys in one place

    By Groovy2121
    Great app for this reason. It would be nice to have a dark mode/ theme for this app.
  • Terrible way to sign in w/ your School Account

    By VictoriaSilvis
    Hello whoever is reading this I downloaded this for the first time, I signed in with my personal account before my school account. The only thing that was time consuming it has to send code to my email. Although, I was able to get my code and finally added my personal account. Now here’s the problem. The QR barcode or having to manually type the code is terrible! Why? This is frustrating to me because I have to back to the campus on Tuesday since there’s no school on Monday. The main point is I hate the idea of the QR scan and manually typing the code. Can you just do the same for the personal account? Just terrible I’m sorry Microsoft, but I hate the idea of a QR scan either having to manually type the code. Please change this or students will be frustrated. Overall, this is my first time using Outlook because previously I had difficult time signing with my password. And I was able to find my password and it worked so, I had to make a new password. I discovered this app through Microsoft, and I want to go password-less. Because of the concerns regarding privacy and security. So I like how Microsoft finally have this because Windows 10 has something similar where you can just make a pin, and sign in without any problems. However, make sure to write it down or use a password manager. Still I suggest to write it down on paper than password manager just because I’m worried how developers are trying to keep hackers, or terrible people who wants access to people’s accounts to steal their confidential information. Last of all, I’m using this on my iPhone 8 so I’m hoping this will be great use for whenever I need to quickly check my emails from my school. And I still don’t like the idea Microsoft had in mind which makes students frustrated. So please fix it.
  • Works well on Phone, Not watch

    By Jase1125
    I constantly receiver errors stating the watch couldn’t communicate with Authenticator on my iPhone. It is frustrating that it works half the time.

  • 手表在联网状态下无法收到通知

    By 手表在联网状态下无法收到通知
  • Are you kidding me

    By MSchally
    I got the app so I could sign in somewhere else...then the app tells me I have to use the authentication app to sign in...when that’s what I’m trying to register for. Microsoft is stupid and so is this app. This is why google is so much better, easier, and reliable
  • Easy and Fast 2FA

    By wwdmm
    This app works perfectly on all of my 2FA secures accounts. Transitioning between devices was relatively painless as well.
  • App rejected my account

    By Shearin69
    With the two point verification, during a reset of my password, the app was unable to recognize my account, with no other way to verify the system submitted me for a 30 day wait to reset - I can only assume by mail. Conversation with online customer support yielded no help and I got from them regarding my paid subscription with Xbox yielded in non- support phones and scanner ads.
