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.

Data does not survive backup and restore

Tinman NCR

Does what it says but a backup and restore to the same device causes all data to be lost.

I suspect this is by design to prevent others from getting your MFA keys, still would be nice to be given a choice.

Crappy application

OzSciFiGuy

Useless. I’m trying to add my Microsoft account to Authenticator and its telling me to authenticate first before I can add it.
Is this like the ultimate stupid update?

I’ve used this before without any issues.

Edit: it looks like I need to use my old phone to authenticate the app on the new one. How am I supposed to know? There is a lot of empty space on the screen. Maybe some suggestions would help us non-corporate users? Everything support related online seems to be for people using azure. But I’m a lowly consumer!

Wake up Microsoft. Apple MacBooks are getting cheaper. Might be time to switch to all apple products.

Useless mess

danieljsloan

As is often the case, Microsoft once again gives us yet another app that only works with SOME of their products. It’s not at all clear that this doesn’t work at all with office365 login verification.
