Waste, more data waste 1/5
Another bull crap app clouding up my data storage. Listen, our information is sold daily to the highest bidder. So don’t tell me all these measures are for our protection. When the ones protecting are the ones trading is redundant. Ask, why make us jump through the hoops for nothing tangible?
Authenticator app for amazon 4/5
By No hold Bars
Very good app to keep your account secured.
It’s very convenient!! Love it..
Can’t figure out how to scan QR Code or enter a key to obtain the correct code for my Rockstar Social Club account. Deleted.
Worst app ever 1/5
Kind of hard to add my Microsoft account, and verify it thru the app, if the app consistently asks me to verify my request thru the app. This is why no one likes Microsoft anymore. And, sadly, there is no way around this
Last 4 digits 1/5
By yyyyevstxge. s
When ever it told me to type last digits of my phone number and I did and then it said has to end in 80 so I did and I’d didn’t work.
It’s a no brainer! 5/5
By Aaron L Peggs
Let’s face it. We all expect our devices and all the personal information that is associated with them to be extremely secure, easy to quickly access, simple to manage, and we want it to be convenient and effortless to do all this across all of our devices. Right? Surely I’m not the only one who likes the peace of mind that tight security provides? And to have that benefit just a click away, plus the simplicity of logging onto a pc or any other device from my phone or vise versa, without the hassle of being bogged down with 30 different passwords for multiple accounts, is quite simply a must have! Especially if you are not very tech savvy like myself.
The Authenticator app is exactly as one would expect from Microsoft, its easy to use and has a simple but effective way to let you log into nearly all your apps or websites. Just tap the user ID fill line which will initiate an auto fill of your choosing, the Authenticator then automatically launches and verifies its you, then pulls up the page you are wanting to go onto asks for your approval and you click approve, at which point it then takes you to the Authenticator app which verifies your ID one more time to ensure there’s no tracking activity. Even if there was a hacker on the hunt it’d be a futile effort because there is NO PASSWORD through the entire process which means there’s no reward for the digital prowler!! Finally and most importantly you’re seamlessly logged onto the page that you chose and away you go. Btw the entire process I outlined above in reality takes about 4 seconds at the most.
I can’t find anything to criticize about this app or any changes I would suggest. It’s the most convenient, simple to use, security driven, device to device login verification tool I’ve ever tried. I’m not overstating this at all I’m just so impressed at the performance of this service it’s flawless!
If you’re still on the fence about it maybe the fact that it’s a 100% free service may be enough to give it a shot 🙂
Once again Microsoft shows us why they are second to none. It’s pretty awesome to have a company that’s simplifying your digital needs, all the while striving to uphold the integrity and responsibility to protect your personal information. And all they ask for in return is for us to download it at no cost. Completely free no strings attached. NO BRAINER!
Update Wasn’t Shown... 5/5
Coincidentally, this app update wasn’t displayed in the App Store on my 512GB Apple iPhone XS Max now running iOS version 12.3.1.
Only after I deliberately selected this app in the App Store did I notice that an update was available.
There’s the right way to do things, the wrong way to do things, and then there’s the Apple way to do things.
Love my iPhone & ALL of my Microsoft apps!
Watch app is not up to park with Phone app 4/5
I don't believe I've ever been able to get the Authenticator app to work properly with push notifications on the Apple Watch. I get the notification on the Watch just fine. I approve it, select the correct number shown on the screen, then it thinks for a second and says "Something went wrong." I pull out my phone and perform the same steps and it works great, Face ID and all that goodness on the phone. This issue has persisted two different phones, multiple app updates, and different IOS builds. Not sure if MS will ever fix it but I'll hold out hope for them to fix the otherwise great service.
Hard to operate the program
Other Organizations? 4/5
Please let me use phone sign in for more than one organizations.
Bad Memory 5/5
Excellent tool for someone can’t remember passwords
It worked for a day 1/5
It worked for like a day and now it doesn’t give me any notifications when I sign in.
Rather than simply have a countdown spinner, it would be more visually clear to have the number fade. In the last 10 seconds (or so), you could gradually make the number more transparent, meaning its expiring. Just a thought on how to be more human-centered:)
Needs Apple Watch Support 4/5
Everything about MS Authenticator is great, especially the push notification options on MS/Windows accounts. However one thing I liked about Authy was it’s Apple Watch support. That’s the only thing preventing me from giving 5 stars.
Needs manual sync button 2/5
I need to be absolutely sure my backup is there for me when I need it! Many times, it wasn’t!
QR Scanner 4/5
Make sure you enable camera on your iPhone in phone settings if you want to be able to scan QRs!
Good work app
Help Me 1/5
I downloaded the app, clicked on add accounts put my email and password in, and then it says for security reasons before you can access this account you must attempt these 3 ways to access your account, and 2 of the ways is using microsoft authenticator app...how am I going to use that if im trying to get into it? And the 3rd one is txt a phone mumber wich is not mine and I need to change and i need the authenticator app for that too...help
Need to delete 1/5
By STOPTHIS POPUP
This pesky application keeps forcing itself on my devices. I do not want this app but can’t stop it. Can you please advice me how do I stop it from popping up.
Qr scanner functionality 3/5
Cannot scan qr bar codes using personal account method for a non Microsoft account.
Excellent App. 5/5
Very helpful and easy to navigate.

Typical Microsoft 1/5
The only reason I use this is because my work is unfortunately on outlook. I’m on my iPad and as requested copied the required URL: of course after depressing the return key it doesn’t work.
No customer service 1/5
By retired HVAC/IT specialist
Buy play station.... it’s free
Another way for msn to charge more 1/5
I thought this app was free. It’s not. I thought it was going to add finger print access it doesn’t. Misleading! Caution
Approvals with the screen locked? 3/5
The app must require the iOS authentication in order to approve the requests.
I’m using touchID for a similar 2factor app
By Maaz Hussaini
It would be great if you introduced a Widget to makes even access to the app a bit faster.
Managed to be annoying in a minute after installation 1/5
Every other authentication app works without needing to send me notification, this one can’t because it has to whine about all of your signs and needs get your immediate attention to all of its whining.
The idea is great and what everyone needs to do these days however maybe I’m just getting to be an old man but for the life of me I can’t figure this thing out. I’m essentially locked myself of all my emails. I have other Authenticators that I use for other things that where easy but this...:. It’s something else. If it was easy to set up then truly amazing. Maybe it’s just a user issue. I say pass in this crap. Hope I can get back to my emails one day.
This app is great! 5/5
It’s easy to use, and a great way to add extra security to accounts that support two-factor authentication and verification.
Set up 1/5
Complicated set up
No instructions 1/5
By Pugs mama
My program is asking me to enter a number into the Authenticator. The Authenticator says enter a number into the Authenticator. What? Neither the Authenticator nor the program has a place to enter a number.
By Zarb Ebner
Why download a 2nd app just to sign in?? Being forced to get this or provide a phone number (no thanks) just to sign in. For no reason.
By Fem Foot Lover
To difficult to set up & directions aren’t really clear on what to do
Total failure 1/5
After adding this app to my iPhone, it wouldn’t let me establish a personal account. Not with my email And not with this phone number. What is wrong with Microsoft? Does anyone there know how to program? It’s just one buggy mess after another. So I deleted this mess of an app. Good riddance.
By TNT is crap
I wish I could have the 30 minutes of my life back that I wasted on this. Quickly deleted this useless app
Not Really 3/5
Apple Watch 无法收到通知 4/5
Apple Watch 在Wi-Fi网络下或者移动数据网络下无法单独收到验证通知。好差劲的应用。垃圾。
Can't restore data. 1/5
iCloud backup does not work. After reseting my phone it was unable to restore any of my accounts.
As a test a repeated the setup and reset, med sure the backup function was set up. Same thing happened. Unable to restore.
The app doesn’t shows the login location 3/5
The app always ask me to sign in my accounts but it doesn’t shows which device is asking for that. It makes me confuse. I mean if there are some bad guy wanna login my accounts and the app just pop up a request wanna me sign in?
I lost all of the backups. 3/5
I reset my iPhone, and I wasn't able to restore all of my backups from the iCloud. So what is the point of these apps.
Hey thank you so much for your help. I thank you. Great I think I like It. Robert....
Don’t work with Apple Watch 4 1/5
Cannot approve sign-in, useless
For coders 3/5
Well, I tried giving up feedback, but that link is broken.
I like this app, but I have used it for several accounts, and two of those are for the same website, so for different accounts. This app shows the same name for both, and I have no way of putting a nickname on them to tell them apart.
Please add some sort of nickname feature, so I can distinguish several accounts.
User friendly 🙀 1/5
Usually programs are to open when one clicks “open”.
Oh, but if it was that simple.
I can’t imagine I’ll be using this crap anytime soon‼️
This app is basic.. 2/5
This app is very disappointing. I understand that it’s a free app, but I trust the Microsoft name. That being said, I wish you could edit the logo or picture indicating the account associated with the 2FA code, or at least let us change the color to organize them more easily. I spent the entire day setting up 2FA on every account I could, because one of my accounts had been hacked. The best-looking overall 2FA app is the Salesforce one, with beautiful, high-quality logos, and some pretty awesome additional features, but you have to be a Salesforce client to use it. All I’m asking for are logos for the well-known websites, and better organization and search options.
