Description of Microsoft Authenticator

Use Microsoft Authenticator for easy, secure sign-ins for all your online accounts using multi-factor authentication, passwordless, or password autofill. You also have additional account management options for your Microsoft personal, work or school accounts.

Getting started with multi-factor authentication

Multi factor authentication (MFA) or two factor authentication (2FA) provides a second layer of security. When logging in with multi-factor authentication, 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 one-time password (OTP) generated by the app. The one-time passwords (OTP codes) have a 30 second timer counting down. This timer is so you never have to use the same time-based one-time password (TOTP) twice and you don’t have to remember the number. The one-time password (OTP) doesn’t require you to be connected to a network, and it won’t drain your battery. You can add multiple accounts to your app, including non-Microsoft accounts like Facebook, Amazon, Dropbox, Google, LinkedIn, GitHub, and more.

Getting started with passwordless

Use your phone, not your password, to log into your Microsoft account. Just 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’ve signed in with two factor authentication (2FA), you’ll have access to all your Microsoft products and services, such as Outlook, OneDrive, Office, and more.

Getting started with autofill

Microsoft Authenticator app can also autofill passwords for you. Sign-in on the Passwords tab inside the Authenticator app with your personal Microsoft account to start syncing passwords, including the passwords saved in Microsoft Edge. Make Microsoft Authenticator the default autofill provider and start autofilling passwords on apps and sites you visit on your mobile. Your passwords are protected with multi-factor authentication in the app. You will need to prove yourself with your fingerprint, face ID, or PIN to access and autofill passwords on your mobile. You can also import passwords from Google Chrome and other password managers.

Microsoft personal, work or school accounts

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.

Microsoft Authenticator Pros

It’s good and it worksSolid..ScottPandHVersion: 6.5.15

It’s microsoft what can i say. nothing betterSo far no issues and i appreciate the very often updates says a lot to me about trying to improve and maintain a good working app.Rockyman91Version: 6.5.51


Microsoft Authenticator Cons

Doesn’t always work the first timeThe Authenticator works, but most of the time when I login to my organization VPN and get push phone notification to authorize myself, clicking approval does nothing. Occasionally I don’t even get the approval request on my phone until 2 minutes later. In these cases I would have to refresh VPN login page a couple times to relogin and maybe on fourth or fifth try I finally get the approval which works. It’s frustrating if I need to access VPN in a pinch. Hope it gets resolved in future.NubsnubsnubsVersion: 6.5.29

Useless messAs 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..LucidDanVersion: 5.4.3
