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.

Terrible app
Jamie Huntttt on 2023-01-29
Every time I get a new phone I go through the hell of trying to re authenticate my emails - because for some reason whenever I get a new phone I get logged out of my email??? And then when I log back in the Microsoft sign in tells me to approve sign in request, I look on the app (which is signed in) and there is no such request to be found. When I try using an alternative code it tells me to find the code in the app. WHERE?!? It’s not like I’m incompetent with technology, I grasp apps and technology very quickly. However, this app is simply not intuitive, helpful or well designed for even the most tech-savvy to make sense of. Please sort it out as no app has ever given me this much pain.
Are you guys retards?

your authenticator app asks for authentication via itself in an ever-lasting loop that’s making me lose hours taken away from my dissertation as I cannot login anywhere. In order to ask for assistance on your community, because speaking to a human is impossible, I also need to log in via my laptop, which requires authentication. I can’t authenticate because my authenticator app asks for authentication via itself. I dream of a world in which Microsoft is not made up by a group of mentally retarded people but by normal humans who understand that there is ABSOLUTELY NO F. ING NEED FOR AN AUTHENTICATOR APP IN THE FIRST PLACE. Wishing you many financial misfortunes, Enrico Iraldo
Guess I’m locked out forever.

Me: *tries to log into the Microsoft Authenticator App using my institutional email* The app: Please confirm your sign in using the Microsoft Authenticator App. Me: … *taps on ‘I can’t use my Microsoft Authenticator App right now’* Because, yknow, can’t use it if I’m currently trying to sign into it. The app: No problem, you have two more options: either confirm your sign in on the Microsoft Authenticator App. Or, type in a verification code…. which we will send to your Microsoft Authenticator App. —— Great design! 👍 Actually though, who authorised this.
You expect better …. Don’t switch phones and expect it to work!

I received a new iphone14 today, all app transferred over quite easily bar this app. I had 6 items in autheicator and only one now. How has the time to keep setting up these apps. It waste time If everyone else can transfer apps no issue. Why can’t you!!

Disappointed Apple Watch app being removed
ThomasWright on 2023-01-29
This app works well, and on newer Apple Watch models the Watch app is great. Very disappointing to hear it’s going to be removed - I use it all the time.
Can we please add notes along with the passwords?
f1&1f on 2023-01-29
Dear MS Authenticator, I would like to suggest adding a note option with the saved passwords which I would really appreciate to have. Many thanks
Too complex
PDA1977 on 2023-01-29
Way too complex signing in, out shake it all about. Working, not working, QR code obsession. This is almost impossible.
Apple Watch support removed.
clearbrian on 2023-01-29
This is the most convienient way to authenticate. One star till it’s returned.
Clunky, unreliable
Not that great app on 2023-01-29
Using the app is impossible. Would recommend any alternative.
