Microsoft Authenticator App

The Microsoft Authenticator lets you quickly and securely verify your identity online, for all your accounts. A variety of features are available depending on the type of accounts. Two-step verification: Two-step verification helps protect your account by providing an extra layer of security beyond simply your password. Here’s how it works – add your account – either from Microsoft, or any other account that has two-step verification. When signing in, 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 verification code generated by the app. Phone sign-in: Use your phone instead of your password for personal Microsoft accounts! After enrolling your account through the app, you can sign in to your account with only your phone. Just approve the notification sent to the Microsoft Authenticator after entering your username, and provide your passcode or TouchID. Broker Accounts: Did your work or school organization ask you to install the Microsoft Authenticator when logging in to a Microsoft app or service? The account you created at that time helps you seamlessly and securely access many additional apps and services on this device without needing to log in to each. If you need to set up two-step verification for the same account, you will still need to “add a new account” from this app, and follow instructions provided by your IT Department.

  • Wth 1/5

    By Angelino 562
    I notice some of my contacts where erase how can I get them back?? Pls help..
  • Good 5/5

    By Mani pr
  • Wow 5/5

    By katopr
    Great app!!!
  • Has made my authentication to work so much easier 5/5

    By Mikeadamsvt
    My company requires multi factor authentication to many of their services. Previously with smart cards or fobs it was really hard. Now, it takes me 3 seconds to authenticate with Touch ID. Thanks Microsoft!
  • Need code to get code 1/5

    By dano3006
    Confirmed that the app needs a code to confirm before it can fetch the code to confirm.
  • You need to code to get into the account to generate a code 1/5

    By Emanuel469
    So I need a code to get into the account within the app that needs a code. So basically I can't sign in ti get the code because I need the code.
  • Nice! 5/5

    By Saerise
    I'm really happy with the changes they've added.
  • Insecure 1/5

    By Selena Heskett
    This app seems insecure for TFA given the fact that it does not ask for passcode/fingerprint to accept a request . Apps like Duo have a better "security first" approach.
  • 3D Touch Vulnerability 3/5

    By BobTech21
    The authenticator app has two setting during enrollment, either Notify or Enter Code. If you have your Authenticator set to Notify you can 3D Touch on the lock screen to approve authentication WITHOUT unlocking your iPhone. It needs to only allow approval AFTER you unlock your phone. Also it doesn't touch your contacts. Rolled this out to 25 users and zero had problems with contacts being delete.
  • No backup 2/5

    By james_manes
    Reset my iPhone and it lost all of my logins. Spent hours calling banks to recover my info. Just plain wrong.
  • Time saver 4/5

    By Legaux
    Works great, i like being able to use Touch ID to authenticate. Please incorporate a Apple Watch app.
  • I prefer Authy 1/5

    By Octocroco
    This app is not bringing anything to the table. Blizzard has an app and it lets you tap to log in and alerts you if someone is trying to get into your account. If this is just an authenticator app we should be allowed to use the one we want instead of being forced to download this.
  • These people writing bad reviews do not know what they're talking about 5/5

    By Chillicus
    This app is great it does exactly what it says it doesn't erase anything from your account doesn't erase contacts. It saves me so much time just being able to press a button and authenticate my two step verification!
  • Apple Watch support gone! 1/5

    By CyberBob859
    Used to work fine with my Apple Watch. Now, it looks like support for the Apple Watch has been removed. PUT IT BACK!
  • Great App, some minor bugs 4/5

    By Tictocwishbone
    This App is great, i use it for personal use and recently my Job required us to use it as well. The only thing it is missing is Fingerprint authentication. I use the LastPass Authenticator for some of my accounts that i want to be more secure.
  • OOPS!!! Not fast enough 1/5

    By cabaker1990
    Maybe I don't understand this app. But it's impossible for me to enter the code fast enough.
  • Crap 1/5

    By Thinmints1
    I hate how all I need is a stupid multiplayer update and I can't play unless I update... I don't even want to play multiplayer but I'm being forced to download this update.... ugh
  • Very user friendly, no back-up 2/5

    By Ftooley77
    This app works very well with what is intended. I have over 12 active accounts and it manages them all with ease. Only improvements that I would suggest is to be able to log in to my Microsoft account to back up accounts in case I switch phones, because I have lost all accounts when getting a new phone! It's too much of a burden, so I will have to try to find a better app unless this is fixed!
  • Waste of time 1/5

    By 🐒🐭🐱🐱🐱🐯🐯🐷
    I only got app because I can't use my Xbox and the only "help" I've gotten is either completely unrelated or is unhelpful. I used the correct email but my xbox says I didn't. I even changed the info to my phone number but it even after I was told my security info has changed my Xbox still uses the incorrect email. I tried everything, but it just refuses to work and it's INFURIATING! Next time, I think I'll get a playstation.
  • Nice 5/5

    By Tucker Chapman
    Keeps my Microsoft account secure
  • Very responsive and fast for the latest version. 5/5

    By umd_ruofei
    The Microsoft authenticator is working very well for Dropbox, OneDrive, and university accounts. Thanks for providing such an awesome service!
  • Kiss your contacts goodbye! 1/5

    By Carolina Mom
    This app is terrible! My company forced us to install this app on our personal phones to access our company's Outlook email and calendar. Outlook on iOS is great WITHOUT the Authenticator app! After installing the Authenticator app many of my contacts in the iOS contacts app disappeared. Some of my colleagues lost all of their contacts! Also, it seems to be causing the Outlook calendar to malfunction. If I try to add any "people" to a calendar placeholder, the Outlook app crashes. Do not install this piece of garbage! Save your contacts!
  • Codes are not backed up 1/5

    By HamiMiami
    By design Microsoft does NOT allow iTunes to backup your codes and there is no way to transfer them to another phone. This is a HUGE problem!
  • Good but missing some features 3/5

    By Seven3Five
    The push authentication and easy setup work well but this app loses / star each for the two major features it lacks. • AnApple Watch App •iCloud Backup
  • Nice, but didn't sync to cloud 2/5

    By dubya
    You won't have access to your codes when changing devices for whatever reason
  • If only it actually worked correctly … 1/5

    By Jaywalker.Extraordinaire
    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

    By PilotInIL
    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

    By therickaustin
    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.

    By Jawnet1
    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

    By jquast
    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

    By Jace911
    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

    By M*ss*d
    ב״ה 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

    By Snodripple
    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.
  • Confuso 1/5

    By 1vitor
  • Works great 5/5

    By FunnyFry
    Haven't had any issues at all. Recent updates for visuals and management are nice additions.
  • Features not functioning. 2/5

    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

    By Abu7waij
    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

    By grizbogie
    What's up with that?
  • Watch support 1/5

    By zulu_tango_
    Remember when $MSFT promised Watch support last summer. Ya, that was neat.
  • Does what it sets out to do 5/5

    By Jello420
    and does a good job of it
  • Perfect 5/5

    By Averagedog
    No complaints. Works with all my MS stuff even Xbox
  • don't download 1/5

    By mec_
    this thing has caused nothing but problems since i got it can't log into anything with this trash
  • Works great 5/5

    By Magician2015
    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

    By KuteLuvr
    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

    By yyttpp
    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

    By osj2
    Won't authenticate anymore. Says failed to connect. This is true from any device
  • arian 5/5

    By ariangharibi
    very good!!!
  • App Crashing...No Longer Useful 1/5

    By NorthShore385
    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.
