What the hel is this? 1/5
What the hel us his?
Nice, but didn't sync to cloud 2/5
You won't have access to your codes when changing devices for whatever reason
If only it actually worked correctly … 1/5
The app might be okay if it allowed users to easily port their app settings to a new device. I purchased a new phone, and can no longer sign into MSFT's internal network because Authenticator lacks the ability to force request a QR code for setup, and the instructions in the help documentation require clicking non-existent "Additional Security verification" link to reach next steps. Embarrassingly poorly engineered app. One star is too many.
Only shows 6-1/2 of 8 digits? 1/5
The app cuts off the 7th digit and doesn't show the 8th digit. No way to turn the display horizontal either. Do not have large text turned on. Only way to use is copy and paste I to notepad. Stupid.
Alternative option 5/5
By Bill of the internets
If you select phone type as "other" (don’t select iPhone), microsoft will give you the standard barcode that works with google authenticator.
Needs Apple Watch app 1/5
iPhone app needs quick (swipe right) access. iPhone app works okay but it really needs an Apple Watch companion app. Annoying the number of times one needs to use the app yet it's hardest to access.
DOESNT SHIW THE CODE 1/5
It use to work. Now it only shows 5 1/2 of the numbers. It literally shows half of the fifth number and show the last one at all. Seriously, this is annoying to get in my acct NOW it doesnt even work. Seriously I rather be able to get in my acct, even if I get hacked. Get it together!!!!!
Can't read code w/large font 3/5
Using iOS system setting, Settings->Display &a Brightness->Font size, with larger font, app causes text to be cropped and unreadable.
It was better before 2/5
Please remove the profile pics. If you have large text set on your phone you can't read all the numbers. Plus the push notices stopped working. It didn't seem to need an update.
Yet another example of Q/A failure for IOS 1/5
In nearly every app for IOS, there is some design flaw. It began when the philanthropic became more focused on the $ rather than the quality. A poor tradeoff indeed.
Once, as an insider, I saw customer service never seen before. But once the focus shifted, and the duplicity of building the 'perfect' O/S using the ingenuity of the people - for free - then charging for the once free - it became clear. The final nail in the coffin was the acquisition of LINKEDIN - another devious player that took and built their value on the backs of individuals naively giving away personal info for free and charging in turn to offer smoke in return - for $2.6B - they entered the dark-side taking money for nothing and providing the product built by the buyers.
Open your eyes and mind to the fact that a new model is being employed - take what you can for free, then sell it back.
Yep - you can fool most of the people most of the time - as long as they can be naive & continue feeding the deceived masses.
But, like all others who did not follow the basic tenet that business = a fair exchange of value, they will implode. Eventually. While those wise enough to spot this chicanery will lament the short-term get rich quick players that understand the difference between output and outcome.
Thank you for the chance to watch and offer yet another example of reviving 'greed is good' house of cards collapse.
Slow to open 3/5
Editing review as it does support ⌚️. My issue now is that the app is really slow to launch the first time I use it in the day. The auth window often times out before the auth prompt is presented. I have started opening the app first. This has never been an issue using Okta.
Please add support for watch.
Works great 5/5
Haven't had any issues at all. Recent updates for visuals and management are nice additions.
Features not functioning. 2/5
By BOB AIDS
Password generation works as expected. No other features work, however. Cannot enable push notifications, cannot enable no-password feature. Disappointing Google authenticator would work just as well for me because of this.
No longer receiving push notifications after latest update 2/5
It used to work before. Now i have to manually open the app when i need to. Verified that settings have notifications on.
Update keeps failing 2/5
What's up with that?
Watch support 1/5
Remember when $MSFT promised Watch support last summer. Ya, that was neat.
Does what it sets out to do 5/5
and does a good job of it
No complaints. Works with all my MS stuff even Xbox
don't download 1/5
this thing has caused nothing but problems since i got it
can't log into anything with this trash
Works great 5/5
I use it both for Microsoft account 2fa and for corporate account at work. Never misses a beat, I'm perplexed why some users are complaining.
Good but less secure 4/5
It's possible to approve push approval requests without requiring device authentication. This is convenient but less secure. Please create an option that to enable device authentication before approving the push request. This means not only is having the device required but actually authenticating to that device is also required adding yet another layer of security.
Worked Once and Quit 1/5
By Urban Casey
It worked once and quit.
Great ... once you get it to work. 4/5
At first it wouldn't work. "No notification found". Then, I realized that I needed to change the delivery method from "Text Message" to "Mobile App" in my account online. I wish this was explained somewhere when installing the App. I almost deleted the App and gave a bad review because of it.
Doesn't work now 1/5
Won't authenticate anymore. Says failed to connect. This is true from any device
App Crashing...No Longer Useful 1/5
After latest update the App no longer works and keeps crashing. As a result I've had to re-validate numerous accounts using other means. I don't recommend until the app is fixed.
App crashes after update!!! 1/5
Won't even open. Totally lame sauce.
MS AUTHENTICATOR v.5.1.4 DOESNT FUNCTION 1/5
I'm forced to write a negative review. I tried the SUPPORT option, but the "new" Virtual Assistant" appears to be doing something else.
AUTHENTICATOR stopped working with this most current release. I'd open the app, it would close immediately; it would not stay open.
I deleted the app, then reinstalled it. Still no luck.
I like the app quite a bit. Right now it's just "dead in the water".
Who can help?
Finally Working! 5/5
Finally working with a personal MSA! Seems to be working well, prompts appear quickly and notifications are actionable. Glad to see this finally working.
App won't launch!!! 1/5
After the last update aunthenticator won't launch and I can't get into my Microsoft accounts!!!
Crashing and unable to launch 3/5
Had to reinstall. Consider ability to backup via keychain?
Bug fix created bug 1/5
By Robert So
After the recent update, Microsoft Authenticator doesn't open anymore and crashes instead.
"this service isn't available" 1/5
Error msg: "this service isn't available"
Amazing app changed my life!!! 5/5
By Jonald J Jrump III
This app helped me lose 12 pounds of belly fat in one month FAST!
I like it but ! 5/5
May I ask the notification of "Verify" to be more clear & accessed easy from lock screen or whatever it possible.
At the end really thanks Microsoft for this "Easy Authenticator Tool"
Keep moving forward.
Okay but no widget 3/5
By Michael L Jones
Works as expected but it doesn't have widget. I use authentication a lot and having to find app vice ac quick pull down and glance at a widget is a pain.
App causes overheating in Iphone 7 ios10 1/5
Last update causes overheating and battery drain on iphone 7 128gb ios 10.2.1 (14D27) even the app is not in use... something that you need to address right away!
Good but needs Apple Watch App 4/5
Would be nice to view codes from Apple Watch. Also option to backup data to iCloud securely.
By Steve Sharo
Forced to use it with office 365. LastPass Authenticator is superior
Could be much better 2/5
I have 2 microsoft email accounts. One is the recovery account for the other, but when I use the authenticator on that account, it says too many attempts have been made. That's after one attempt. I'm not a microsoft person any longer, so, seems to be a good time to start moving away altogether.
Cannot see new features 3/5
By Shubhan Chemburkar
Hey team, I can't see the new "enable phone signin" option for all of my accounts. I could see it for one account that I did. For others, I cannot see them. Could it be that these accounts were present before the new way to add a Microsoft account was implemented via sign in as against the old scan QR code method.
The send feedback option in your app does not support Outlook mail app, needs Apple mail app which I do not use.
Sick asf 4/5
By Dubstep Karma
Yo this thing is fuking amazing.
I give it 4 stars because let's be real here.
One of my Outlook accounts has been hijacked and this app isn't functioning properly and I have tried using the app on both my iPhone 6s and iPad. I am able to enter my username and password, verify my credentials and then when I click on "next" absolutely nothing happens. Please fix asap so I can regain access to my email account. Thx
Very user friendly 4/5
This app works very well with what is intended. I have over 5 active accounts and it manages them all with ease. Only improvements that I would suggest is to be able to change the appearance order and to log in to my Microsoft account to back up accounts in case I switch phones. So I don't have to go through hassles of re-adding them all!
There are better options. 2/5
Works ok enough, but compared to Authy or Duo, it is a serious laggard in this space.
iWatch capability is gone? 3/5
Crashed, then couldn't call home with error logs due to another error. 1/5
I'm glad I didn't trust my important authentication information to an app that crashed and had another error within my first minute of usage!
It's not worth your time, and probably not trustworthy!
2 Factor made easy 5/5
This app works great. No more copy paste of codes.
Love This App! 5/5
Thank God for apps like this!
