Description

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)provides a second layer of security. When enabled, during login 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 one-time password (OTP) generated by the app. The 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 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 organization resources. You will need to register your device to your organization through the app and add your work or school account. Microsoft Authenticator 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.

I’m going to cry
spagget o on 2022-11-29
I’m trying to log in to the Authenticator because I needed a code for my school email registration. But the login on this app NEEDS A CODE. HOW THE HECK TO I GET A CODE FOR THE APP WHEN THE APP THAT IS SUPPOSE TO GIVE A CODE IS ASKING FOR THE CODE IT SHOULD BE GIVING. ITS AN ENDLESS LOOP OF ME TRYING TO GET THE CODE AND THE SUPPORT STUFF TELLING ME TO GET RID OF 2 STEP VERIFICATION, BUT TO TURN OFF 2 STEP VERIFICATION, I NEED ACCESS TO MY ACCOUNT. BUT IF I TRY TO ACCESS MY ACCOUNT, IT ASKS ME FOR A CODE AND TELLS ME TO DISABLE 2 STEP VERIFICATION. ITS A LOOP AND ITS KILLING ME INSIDE AND OUTSIDE. I WOULD RATE 0 OUT OF 5 STARS BECAUSE IT DOESNT WORK, BUT I CANT.
Ruined my life! Way to go Microsoft, thanks a bunch!

Don’t get this app whatever you do for the love of god. I just got a new iPhone and transferred all of my data over, including iCloud backups. Open the app and it says unable to get backup data from iCloud. Make sure you are signed in with the same iCloud account you used to create your authenticator account. I ONLY HAVE A SINGLE ICLOUD ACCOUNT. WHAT IS GOING ON MICROSOFT? I’M NOT LOCKED OUT OF LIKE 20 ACCOUNTS WITH NO RECOURSE AND YOU DON’T HAVE ANY ANSWERS ON YOUR FORUMS, AND NO WAY TO CONTACT A REP. WELL DONE. I AM RUINED.
Perfect Except For Two Things…
scottpfei on 2022-11-29
Everything about this is perfect from its integration to other Microsoft products to its ease of use. The only features missing are 1. The ability to nickname saved passwords (this was recently added to the Edge version and would love to see it here) 2. A desktop app version that can sign in to other apps so I don’t have to constantly open Edge, navigate to settings and then passwords and then copy the password and then go back to the app I'm trying to sign in to.
Minus one!

Awful experience! I couldn’t enter in my working accounts, because Authenticator isn’t working. After I press “I couldn’t use my Authenticator now” (because it isn’t working!!!) it sents me messages “Enter the code displayed in the Microsoft Authenticator app on your mobile phone”. WHAT??? 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️
Watch app needs more support
halphaoiii on 2022-11-29
I don’t have a lot to say about the phone. The Watch app only seems to support the notification mode of authentication. My accounts use the type in the current 6 digit number from the phone app. It would be nice if the Watch could echo the same 6 digit code.
Please support a search

The app works fine, but when you have dozens of 2FA codes it’s difficult to find them as there is no sort order and no search. Please add a search.
Privacy concerns
nicknamesaredumb56789 on 2022-11-29
For an app supposed to protect your privacy, they sure are collecting a lot of your personal data with no way to opt out
Need dark mode
KhiladiKing on 2022-11-29
The app works great. I have no big complaints. I would like to get dark mode and that’s about it.
