What is 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)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.

    This app is great

    So a few months ago I got my Xbox account hacked and I was really sad about it because I had lost a lot. Including my games ect. But then I found out the hacker stole my email and put it in this app because at the time I didn’t have this app. So that was a good lesson for me to use this app always and it’s absolutely fantastic because I have a lot of emails like work, school, and gaming of course but I feel like all my emails are super secure also I like the fact that when trying to log into another site with your email you have to get permission from the Authenticator app before you can do anything so if someone gets ahold of your email then they can’t log in at all.

    Everyone Needs This

    I have recommended this app to everyone I know. Linking your accounts to an authenticatoe gives you must better control and account security. Should someone attempt to crack into a certain account, and should have the password, I still have to authorize it. If I deny it, I can then change the password when I am able to. An extra step in security can go a long way, and this is a step in the right direction.

    Convenience without compromising security

    Microsoft Authenticator is the best MFA app. Since I use my Microsoft account all the time, having a second factor in authenticating gives me assurance & security. And the way it’s implemented is perfect—it sends me a notification, I select a number that matches with the browser, and scan my fingerprint (Touch ID). Amazing! And I can also add 2FA codes of other apps/sites such as Google & Facebook. The app also has iCloud backup & app lock with a passcode & biometrics.

    Unique feature to backup / restore for iPhone

    The best app just because it has very helpful feature to backup ALL accounts in iCloud (iPhone only) and restore them all on new iPhone (or after reset). Very useful feature, not supported by any other Authenticator app, ie all other ones require both new AND old phone, but with MS Authenticator you can just restore everything to the new phone from backup !!! High five to MS !!!

    The Gold Standard

    If every authentication app worked like this, they might be used more. This app is by far more useful than the Google competitor. Having to use both, since some accounts only work on one or the other, I much prefer to use Microsoft. The simple act of hitting approve or selecting a number makes signing in a breeze. This is what the future of logging in should be like.
