Microsoft Authenticator

Introducing the updated Microsoft Authenticator! One app to quickly and securely verify your identity online, for all of your accounts.
This app provides an extra layer of protection when you sign in, often referred to as two-step verification or multi-factor authentication. If you've enabled this for your Microsoft accounts, you'll get a notification from this app after trying to sign in. Just tap approve and you're good to go. For any other account, or if you're offline, our built-in verification code generator has got you covered.

Additionally, you can use this app to register your device with your company if you've been instructed to do so. This is required by select companies in order to access corporate files, emails, or apps. Registering also enables single sign-on to many Microsoft powered apps.

This new app replaces the Azure Authenticator, Microsoft account, and Multi-Factor Authentication apps.

One of the worst experiences I've ever had with any app. The UI is clunky, unintuitive and borderline unusable. Once I got two factor authentication my email app stopped syncing and upon getting asked by the outlook app to sign in again it said to check this app (which I had to open manually) and it asked me to pick a number (?) which neither app gave me at any point. It's like Microsoft wants you to get your account stolen by making any protection measures impossible to reliably set up.

I lost my phone to water, but I was not worried because I had configured this app's backup to be daily. I regularly checked that it was done correctly. However, when I tried to restore my backup, I got an error saying nothing was stored. Don't trust this app, use Authy instead, it has a backup that works and you can configure multiple devices, including your desktop, so you can have peace of mind if you lose one of your devices.

I don't think I've had one single experience where this app worked correctly on the first try. I've had endless loops where I had to use authenticator to log into authenticator, I've had pop-ups block the numbers you need to tap, and most recently I've had a screen come up where I have to agree to the privacy policy to use the app, but the "I agree" button does not work. I've been tapping it periodically for about 5 minutes; literally nothing happens. Utterly ill-concieved, even for Microsoft!

So long as you are operating it on a newer device or one with enough ram to move quickly, it's very nice. Otherwise it'll move slowly and you might even have to have it open to recieve notifications (tested on various phones). But as the devices were cheap, it was to be expected - you get what you pay for. Love the app, would love to see the security coding as I am studying such topics in college right now.

Really good app. I must admit, I was a bit nervous saving such information at first, but honestly? You really can't trust anyone BUT Microsoft for this kind of thing. You can save passwords, debit/ credit cards, even use it for Multi-Factor Authentication (the best I've ever used, and I used them all). On top of all that, it gives you the option to autofill that information on any text box that supports it (yes, that's the website that has to support it, not this app)

The lack of a search option is a turn down for me. I have 16+ accounts' TOTP tokens added, and each time when I have to search for one, I would have to manually go through the list to find the desired account. So, please add a search option to search for the desired account's TOTP code. Also, after the latest update, the backup doesn't seem to be working. It says "Invalid Date" in both "Created Date" and "Updated Date" fields.

This is the worst. The app and my laptop aren't communicating like they need to, it no longer gives me a QR code, and keeps sending the same message to both screens. Seriously, how am I supposed to see a code or accept something if both screens are requesting the same data, but neither is showing anything but that message.... at least until it times out.

Permanently locked me out by requiring authenticator app to set up authenticator app. Trying to pick and approve results in error. Works fine on older phone that I'm about to reset. What happens when I reset? Oh, that's right! Permanent lockout! To remove your account you need to stop sync. Stopping sync removes backup. Continue? Error restoring from backup - you just deleted it on another device, remember? Cool feature: self removing backup when you try to transfer to another device.

I'm giving this app 5 stars even though, at the present time, it's not working quite right for me. It started out always auto filling passwords, but now it doesn't the majority of the time & I'm always having to back out of what I'm doing & look up a password... which is probably not the app's fault, but something to do with my settings. I've been round & round in the settings, but I can't seem to be able to find the "magic key" that will make everything work right again....*sigh*

Works as described... I have had problems with other authenticor apps I've tried l maybe 3 or 4 other apps which sometimes can get me confused. I have several accounts with Google & Outlook ect. This one is pretty easy to use & works great everytime, especially when I need to sign into my laptop it just sends the verification to my cell-I click the button and it works just like it's supposed to! Thanks developers! Keep up the good work 🙂

Worked fine for a while then anything other that emails stopped working. I just disabled the additional features after years of them not working. When I attempted to set it back up I was prompted to scan a qr code. Problem was the qr code is on my phone and I can't screenshot it. I seriously cannot believe how stupid this is. Did no one test this? Honestly horrendous.

Every update turns on app lock and turns off "show codes." Please don't mess with my settings Microsoft! I configured them the way I want for a good reason. Why would you keep changing them on me? It is arrogant, rude and very annoying! Latest update also had a change in privacy policy and a button to agree which I couldn't press. Had to force close the app three times until it went away.

makes sign in to apps really simple. Password are out of site and out of mind. Makes password manage easy, especially cross platforms. I use Windows computer with Edge browser and an iPad and Android phone. This app syncs passwords between all devices.

I wouldn't say that it's working or has fixed the problem or the issues that I'm having but it's a innovative idea 2oath, works well for the standard 2way authentication. A little bit faster than the other ones that I used but may I ask why does it have to update two times a day that's a little obnoxious don't you think?

Jus. C. May 4, 2022     

Haven't had too many issues. It has all the features a 2FA app needs, though it was difficult to transfer my work account from one phone to another using the cloud account backup / restore. I had to have IT delete and regenerate my link as my old phone was the only one getting notifications. My personal accounts I was able to transfer without any problems.

easy, fast, and trustworthy. I use different types of authentication apps for work and personal. Microsoft makes easier to log in in different devices and find it. I have an issue with Google when I lost my phone and go to another device log in send the motivation to phone which is lost, so I can't access to my acct to see where is my phone

Worked fine so far but concerned about the backup. If you read the docs, you can't load the backup if you switch to a different OS. Also, this app has no code export, so I'm in trouble if the backup decides to fail. I recommend using an app with a better backup system or one that at least allows code export.

Jad. R. Apr 8, 2022     

Was working fine until I had to restore my phone to factory settings. After reinstalling it started telling me I had to use the app to get into the app, which is obviously impossible. I am now facing a problem as it is a requirement of my college to have Microsoft Teams on my phone, but I can't sign in without this app.

Esm. E. Apr 15, 2022     

Cannot stand Microsoft! This app does not work with my new phone no matter what I've tried. In general I loathe Microsoft. No matter how many times I've reset my password. When I to used with auto fill it claims that it's the incorrect password. Then I have to reset it again. Samsung want me to sync my accounts but, guess what I can't! Asking me to TAP a number that isn't even provided in the app is some type of twisted joke.

Arr. K. Mar 22, 2022     

Application keeps on saying that has no internet connection however I have an internet connection. The only way to let most authentication commands go through is by using mobile data. In order to sign into an account you have to use data instead of Wi-Fi. I still don't know why this hasn't been fixed yet it's been over a year. Even most authentications fail constantly.

Nic. W. May 25, 2022     

Can't use the app. Send you in circles. Tried to log into the app so I could get a code to sign in on my laptop. When you try to log in on the app it asks for the authentication code from the app but you can't get one till you log in. So you can only get a code when logged in but can't log in without a code. Same on computers. I've tried every which way. I'm tech savvy but it's a stupidly broken system. So I can't login the app nor can I do that on a computer. Which idiot thought that up? 😡😡

Straight up, just makes signing in and not worrying about unauthorized sign ins SOOOOOOO much easier. Been using it for maybe 2 years now? Maybe less? Never had an issue with it. Has always worked how it's supposed to. And the fact you can add other logins from other softwares/companies removed the worry of having to remember a billion passwords.

Anu. S. G. Mar 31, 2022     

There is a password manager built in. The 2FA should be a standalone app. The bad settings UI means you can confuse settings between password manager and 2FA. Plus the UI has a lot of room for ambiguity in user's mind. A critical app such as this should be simple, straightforward and not crowded with unnecessary bloat. 40 years of making software should have taught Microsoft all that.

Jos. W. Mar 31, 2022     

There are a few times when the box pops up for autofill then it just gets in the way and makes trying to fill out something frustrating cuz it's packing the wrong stuff up. But overall it's a good app and is actually very handy and useful in my day-to-day life on my phone.

Bra. B. Apr 12, 2022     

Quick efficient and effective. I juggle multiple Microsoft account. I was worried about the conflict. This app handles multiple accounts without any difficulty. It is quick, and simple. Occasionally a small extra verification step is Needed which is very convenient.
