Microsoft Authenticator App

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.

Microsoft Authenticator app reviews

  • WIDGET! 5/5

    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

    By achalk84
    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.
  • Crap 1/5

    By getting_old_sucks
    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

    By Whitford492
    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

    By Kutzzup
    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.
  • Pointless? 1/5

    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.
  • Pain 1/5

    By Fem Foot Lover
    To difficult to set up & directions aren’t really clear on what to do
  • Total failure 1/5

    By rumpleSS
    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.
  • Nightmare 1/5

    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

    By MarcAnthony005
  • Apple Watch 无法收到通知 1/5

    By 手表在联网状态下无法收到通知
    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

    By tomlajtos
    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

    By Mashimaro911
    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?
  • Bad 1/5

    By xpipurryx
    I reset my phone and then i was trying to get my backups and guess what they said is no back ups for that account pss what a headache 🤕
  • I lost all of the backups. 3/5

    By bkaselow
    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.
  • App. 5/5

    By Robertahillsjr
    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

    By Turbozv
    Cannot approve sign-in, useless
  • For coders 3/5

    By Gtyyyy2749
    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

    By NeedsOversite
    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

    By RyTunes05
    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.
  • Help if needed hopefully 5/5

    By jmc now
    Hopefully this is secured for the process of flawed processes on laptop/ mobile device and I’m sure I’ll let you know if it still is compromised
  • Makes life easy 5/5

    By vbayl1610
    Enjoying the seamless (and fast) service provided by this app!

    By dbozard
    This app lost my backup!!!! It showed that it was being backed up to my iCloud. I made sure of this. When I switched to a different phone (after resetting my old phone), I went through the whole restore process within the app but it now states there are NO backups in my iCloud. NOW, I’M UNABLE TO GET INTO ONE OF MY TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION APPS. I’m completely locked out. This is ridiculous and it appears from the reviews, that I’m not the only one with this problem.
  • Fine when it works 1/5

    By JMSNC59
    Been trying for an hour to reset an email password. Keeps telling me to get code from Authenticator then says it’s wrong (there’s no way to put a space-even copying it from the Authenticator leaves out the space, which makes the code incorrect).
  • App 1/5

    By johnson56301
    More time
  • Very Inconsistent 1/5

    By nee slang
    And only shows up if I actually go into the app. I don’t get the positive reviews, this works 50% of the time on a good day.
  • Switching Phones 1/5

    By Trash App #1
    This is the worst app to work with if you switch phones. There are several inquires into how to over ride it and it seems Microsoft doesn’t even know themselves.
  • Stoopid 1/5

    By Vack Off
    I’m trying to enter a code for something and I go into the app and there is no place to put in a code! Waste of space
  • Great! 5/5

    By Vyobi
    It’s for free and works perfectly! What more could you ask?
  • Amazing 5/5

    By subtoCjayDaGr8_YT
    The best Authenticator out there way better than google and many many others I highly recommend it
  • Great MFA Tool 5/5

    By micchickenburger
    Authenticator is the best MFA app I’ve used to date. It’s easy to use, supports device registration for enterprise accounts, and can backup tokens! The last item is very important for someone like me who has nearly thirty tokens. Microsoft token requests go straight to my Apple Watch, which is super handy as well. Don’t even have to pick up my phone. Feature requests: • Please add a quick search since having 30+ tokens can be a bit unwieldy • Please allow customization of token images to make it easier to find the service I’m looking for
  • Peace of Mind 5/5

    By Nexfilius
    Had an email security breach that allowed someone to get access to my amazon account and credit card information. I caught it early enough to stop any issues, but this could’ve prevented it in the first place.
  • Amazing 5/5

    By diamondlover98
    I recommend this
  • Terrible app 1/5

    By DB223abqdftre
    This is the worst app. I pretty much have to have the app up on my screen when attempting to access our secure systems. If you miss the approval popup, you’re hosed. The Lastpass authenticator app is 100x better.
  • Authenticator 5/5

    By #Microsoftforlife
    The app is really nice!
  • There is no barcode scanner 🤔 3/5

    By Vikya2001
    Why there is no barcode scanner in app? This is forcing me to move to other Authenticator apps!!!
  • This app is a life saver!! 5/5

    By the loser of accounts
    Being a young gamer makes it easy for me to forget my password or lose the paper I wrote it down on, it also made sure my accounts were safe and secure thank you!
  • Excellent Authenticator 5/5

    By Tinker683
    I try and use this as my primary Authenticator app. It works beautifully and have had no issues with it. It also backs up to iCloud so it’s easy to restore too.
  • This app is great 5/5

    By MyExDumpedMeForATrashCan
    So a few months ago I got my Xbox account hacked and I was really sad about it because I had lost a lot. Including my games ect. But then I found out the hacker stole my email and put it in this app because at the time I didn’t have this app. So that was a good lesson for me to use this app always and it’s absolutely fantastic because I have a lot of emails like work, school, and gaming of course but I feel like all my emails are super secure also I like the fact that when trying to log into another site with your email you have to get permission from the Authenticator app before you can do anything so if someone gets ahold of your email then they can’t log in at all.
  • All my authorization keys in one place 5/5

    By Groovy2121
    Great app for this reason. It would be nice to have a dark mode/ theme for this app.
  • Terrible way to sign in w/ your School Account 3/5

    By VictoriaSilvis
    Hello whoever is reading this I downloaded this for the first time, I signed in with my personal account before my school account. The only thing that was time consuming it has to send code to my email. Although, I was able to get my code and finally added my personal account. Now here’s the problem. The QR barcode or having to manually type the code is terrible! Why? This is frustrating to me because I have to back to the campus on Tuesday since there’s no school on Monday. The main point is I hate the idea of the QR scan and manually typing the code. Can you just do the same for the personal account? Just terrible I’m sorry Microsoft, but I hate the idea of a QR scan either having to manually type the code. Please change this or students will be frustrated. Overall, this is my first time using Outlook because previously I had difficult time signing with my password. And I was able to find my password and it worked so, I had to make a new password. I discovered this app through Microsoft, and I want to go password-less. Because of the concerns regarding privacy and security. So I like how Microsoft finally have this because Windows 10 has something similar where you can just make a pin, and sign in without any problems. However, make sure to write it down or use a password manager. Still I suggest to write it down on paper than password manager just because I’m worried how developers are trying to keep hackers, or terrible people who wants access to people’s accounts to steal their confidential information. Last of all, I’m using this on my iPhone 8 so I’m hoping this will be great use for whenever I need to quickly check my emails from my school. And I still don’t like the idea Microsoft had in mind which makes students frustrated. So please fix it.
  • Works well on Phone, Not watch 3/5

    By Jase1125
    I constantly receiver errors stating the watch couldn’t communicate with Authenticator on my iPhone. It is frustrating that it works half the time.
  • Die 1/5

    By FutureAssasin
    Go die this is so stupid.
  • Are you kidding me 1/5

    By MSchally
    I got the app so I could sign in somewhere else...then the app tells me I have to use the authentication app to sign in...when that’s what I’m trying to register for. Microsoft is stupid and so is this app. This is why google is so much better, easier, and reliable
  • Easy and Fast 2FA 5/5

    By wwdmm
    This app works perfectly on all of my 2FA secures accounts. Transitioning between devices was relatively painless as well.
  • App rejected my account 1/5

    By Shearin69
    With the two point verification, during a reset of my password, the app was unable to recognize my account, with no other way to verify the system submitted me for a 30 day wait to reset - I can only assume by mail. Conversation with online customer support yielded no help and I got from them regarding my paid subscription with Xbox yielded in non- support phones and scanner ads.
  • Sometimes is not working, please advise. 4/5

    By 蔡光明888
    Sometimes is not displaying the approval window after the login request sent to the phone. Also, the password option should be off once user selected the option to use please advise, or password should be combined with the Authentication app. Thanks
  • I can no longer check my email away from my desktop at work 1/5

    By Hunnyalrohaif
    This app and this Microsoft security option is horrible. I actually hate our IT department for dealing with Microsoft and for upgrading to this security system. I work in the field so now I can't see my email except once a week maybe and I nothing shows up on my calendar. So imagine all the work I'm not doing because of this app and the so-not-user-friendly Microsoft solution.
