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.
We’re always working on new features, bug fixes and performance improvements. Make sure that you stay updated with the latest version for the best authentication experience.
Ratings and Reviews
Great way to authenticate
This is the only Authenticator app that let’s me Authenticate without having to fill in a 6 digit code
Authenticator on Apple Watch
No setup screen ? No deny or allow on the watch ?
Doesn't sync over iCloud, doesn't give me notifications
Im not sure if this is better than authy. I enabled iCloud backups, but I cannot sync my iPad and my iPhone.
I don't get any notifications if I need a code.
Is it a bug, or is more crap from Microsoft we don't need?
