Description

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.

  • Push notifications don’t show up in app

    About 1/2 the time when I tap on a push notification and the app opens it doesn’t prompt me to approve. I wait a minute or two and eventually the login times out and I have to try again. I found that usually if it doesn’t work right away I can kill the app and restart and it pops up. I tried killing the app before the push arrived so it would start up fresh when the notification wa opened, but that didn’t help. This app only does 1 thing - please make it work reliably. 😠 The push is coming through fine, the app is just buggy when I open the notification!

    There is no backup working on this app. I delete it accidentally and nothing help me getting back data and lead to unforgivable result: i am blocked from my services. It is one stars because this must not happen for a big company like Microsoft

    The watch app worked, the actual app worked and it’s collectively gotten so bad I’m considering doing as I’ve been told, installing windows 10 on my MacBook Pro and switching back to Samsung. The phones are better anyways.

    I had to reset my password for a work account and I selected the option to approve through the app as there was no code that was displayed. There was no notification popping up for me to approve and then I was locked out from resetting my password for 9 hours since I kept trying and failing to approve it.

    Probably one of the most stupidest apps I’ve downloaded. It’s pointless.
