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.

    It would be great if you introduced a Widget to makes even access to the app a bit faster.
  • Managed to be annoying in a minute after installation

    Every other authentication app works without needing to send me notification, this one can’t because it has to whine about all of your signs and needs get your immediate attention to all of its whining.

    The idea is great and what everyone needs to do these days however maybe I’m just getting to be an old man but for the life of me I can’t figure this thing out. I’m essentially locked myself of all my emails. I have other Authenticators that I use for other things that where easy but this...:. It’s something else. If it was easy to set up then truly amazing. Maybe it’s just a user issue. I say pass in this crap. Hope I can get back to my emails one day.
  • This app is great!

    It’s easy to use, and a great way to add extra security to accounts that support two-factor authentication and verification.
  • Set up

    Complicated set up
  • No instructions

    My program is asking me to enter a number into the Authenticator. The Authenticator says enter a number into the Authenticator. What? Neither the Authenticator nor the program has a place to enter a number.
  • Pointless?

    By Zarb Ebner
    Why download a 2nd app just to sign in?? Being forced to get this or provide a phone number (no thanks) just to sign in. For no reason.
  • Pain

    To difficult to set up & directions aren’t really clear on what to do
  • Total failure

    By rumpleSS
    After adding this app to my iPhone, it wouldn’t let me establish a personal account. Not with my email And not with this phone number. What is wrong with Microsoft? Does anyone there know how to program? It’s just one buggy mess after another. So I deleted this mess of an app. Good riddance.
