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.

Almost there

App is great on the phone. I'd only love to get all 2FA codes on Apple Watch, but it only supports notifications from Microsoft Account :(

Great app with some minor hiccups

Generally a great app that is easy to use. However, the syncing takes a bit longer than I’d expect (after tapping approval, the sign-in might take a few seconds), with Duo this worked instantly. Another issue is that when multiple login requests are sent simultaneously (e.g. opening Outlook and Teams in the morning at the same time), only one notification appears in the authenticator app, so one has to manually regenerate the authentication requests for each additional login attempt.

Where the hell is touch/face id support?

Almost every app on iOS that has anything to do with money or access has an option to enable touch or face ID but Microsoft as always knows better
