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.

  • How come this does support QR code setup?

    By mercutio
    Why doesn’t this app support account setup via QR codes anymore? The removal of this is baffling.
  • It worked for a day

    By AF4090
    It worked for like a day and now it doesn’t give me any notifications when I sign in.
  • Suggestion

    By SteelySpartan94
    Rather than simply have a countdown spinner, it would be more visually clear to have the number fade. In the last 10 seconds (or so), you could gradually make the number more transparent, meaning its expiring. Just a thought on how to be more human-centered:)
  • Needs Apple Watch Support

    By Alapacho
    Everything about MS Authenticator is great, especially the push notification options on MS/Windows accounts. However one thing I liked about Authy was it’s Apple Watch support. That’s the only thing preventing me from giving 5 stars.
  • Needs manual sync button

    By staunchnortheasterner
    I need to be absolutely sure my backup is there for me when I need it! Many times, it wasn’t!

    Make sure you enable camera on your iPhone in phone settings if you want to be able to scan QRs!
