The Microsoft Authenticator lets you quickly and securely verify your identity online, for all your accounts. A variety of features are available depending on the type of accounts.
Two-step verification helps protect your account by providing an extra layer of security beyond simply your password. Here’s how it works – add your account – either from Microsoft, or any other account that has two-step verification. When signing in, after entering your password, 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.
Use your phone instead of your password for personal Microsoft accounts! After enrolling your account through the app, you can sign in to your account with only your phone. Just approve the notification sent to the Microsoft Authenticator after entering your username, and provide your passcode or TouchID.
Did your work or school organization ask you to install the Microsoft Authenticator when logging in to a Microsoft app or service? The account you created at that time helps you seamlessly and securely access many additional apps and services on this device without needing to log in to each. If you need to set up two-step verification for the same account, you will still need to “add a new account” from this app, and follow instructions provided by your IT Department.

We're always working on new features, bug fixes, and performance improvements. Make sure you stay updated with the latest version for the best authentication experience.
These people writing bad reviews do not know what they're talking about
This app is great it does exactly what it says it doesn't erase anything from your account doesn't erase contacts. It saves me so much time just being able to press a button and authenticate my two step verification!
Kiss your contacts goodbye!
This app is terrible! My company forced us to install this app on our personal phones to access our company's Outlook email and calendar. Outlook on iOS is great WITHOUT the Authenticator app!
After installing the Authenticator app many of my contacts in the iOS contacts app disappeared. Some of my colleagues lost all of their contacts! Also, it seems to be causing the Outlook calendar to malfunction. If I try to add any "people" to a calendar placeholder, the Outlook app crashes.
Do not install this piece of garbage! Save your contacts!
Very user friendly, no back-up
This app works very well with what is intended. I have over 12 active accounts and it manages them all with ease. Only improvements that I would suggest is to be able to log in to my Microsoft account to back up accounts in case I switch phones, because I have lost all accounts when getting a new phone! It's too much of a burden, so I will have to try to find a better app unless this is fixed!
