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
It’s for free and works perfectly! What more could you ask?
The best Authenticator out there way better than google and many many others I highly recommend it
Great MFA Tool 5/5
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.
• 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
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.
I recommend this
Terrible app 1/5
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.
The app is really nice!
There is no barcode scanner 🤔 3/5
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
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
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
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
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
I constantly receiver errors stating the watch couldn’t communicate with Authenticator on my iPhone. It is frustrating that it works half the time.
Go die this is so stupid.
Are you kidding me 1/5
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
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
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
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
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.
Excelente best 5/5

Me gusta muy buena la recomiendo muy segura
Useless Outlook Insists On Taking Our Numbers 1/5
By Maxfun lol
Outlook is sickening in insisting on taking our phone numbers! It is annoying in its security we could not login to our own accounts each time!!!!! Wasting our time!!!!
Needs to coordinate updates with Outlook 2/5
By Jane Average
Every single time I update my Outlook password (as required by my job), Authenticator stops working and I get an error message to contact support. And every single time we do the “turn it off/turn it back on, uninstall/reinstall” dance like it’s 1994. And EVERY SINGLE TIME, nothing works, they are bewildered... and suddenly an Authenticator update hits and it’s magically fixed. SO MYSTERIOUS. It’s the same company, it shouldn’t be this hard!
Not multi device friendly 2/5
Can only made ONE backup to iCloud.
But CANNOT restore a backup made from another device.
Needs menu to select to restore when listing backups. Or just support multi device backups. Or both.
Watch version used to work; doesn’t anymore 2/5
What a tease. Offer an apple watch version which would be a perfect use of the watch but then it doesn’t work. How frustrating. It used to work a couple of months ago (usually took 2 or 3 attempts) but now after 5 or 6 attempts each time I try to log in and it still won’t work. I give up. Please get a fix deployed.
Favorite authenticator app 5/5
Everything is perfect about this app. Backup is my favorite feature; I can delete the app, get a new phone and I won’t lose my 2FA accounts! It’s amazing!
The only 2 improvements I would like are speed (scrolling is very jittery) and copying the code when the code isn’t visible (just tap the account to copy the code and just show a 2 second prompt that the code was copied).
Easy to use 5/5
Easy to use. Wish they’d develop an app for Windows 10.
Don’t understand this app 1/5
I thought this app was to monitor my Microsoft accounts (including my kids) but that doesn’t seem to be the case. The only options are to add accounts (which I did), setting, and help. When you click on the account, it gives you the option to get a code. Not sure what this is for but Microsoft apparently doesn’t have an app for what I’m looking for. This app seems to be pointless.
Auth in Lock Screen 4/5
I’ve noticed you can auth to services through a locked Apple device. Seems to be a minor security flaw.
Did not 1/5
I used this app with Microsoft and the codes they gave me didn’t work and they locked me out of my computer for having too many failed attempts. Deleted the app.
Authenticator Lost My Backup 1/5
DO NOT USE!!
I trusted that Microsoft’s backup feature actually worked. I had to do a hardware reset on my phone and Microsoft doesn’t let you export the totp values. The only thing you can do is backup to iCloud.
I was extremely diligent when doing this and followed all of the instructions precisely.
After doing the hardware reset the first thing I did was Begin Recovery which just said that I don’t have any backups in my iCloud....
I’m now locked out of my most important accounts.
I would encourage people to look into other alternatives that give them more control over their own secrets like Bitwarden or even LastPass and avoid using this app.
Absolutely junk 1/5
By clint & Rudy
It doesn’t give u a qr to scan and I’ve put the code in 4 times and doesn’t work
this app 5/5
ammaaaziing helped me recover my password oh it is wonder ful if tou are like me that never remembers your passwords then you should have this app WOONDDDEERRFULLL
Codes don’t work 2/5
I’d be nice if the codes worked so I can get what I need done, done but otherwise I guess it works fine.
Codes refreshes to quickly 2/5
I am a huge fan of xbox and gaming, but being told that i need to create a new password when I have my current password for what feels like forever. Also i turned two-step verification thinking that is a way around having to not create a new password for my account. No when I try to let my friend log on to my account so he can help with a game that I don’t have a whole lot of time to play as much as i would like
It keeps my accounts safe.
Face ID 1/5
Needs to support Face ID
Missing function 2/5
Needs a push that just needs a click to accept.
Just like Duo app
Thank You Microsoft 5/5
Making my Business Secure from bugs.
Microsoft authenticator app would be much more useful if Microsoft used it for anything. Unfortunately Microsoft does not use their authenticator app for signing into Microsoft accounts apps applications programs computers. But good job shooting yourself in the foot once again Microsoft.
Not working on Apple Watch 1/5
App not working on Apple Watch. Won’t connect to phone to setup Microsoft account.
Works great, unless you need the recovery option 1/5
So much easier and faster 5/5
By Jonny Champ
Just takes the multiple steps of security steps by using the app is great. Especially if you make your accounts a little to secure Authenticator just helps you add encryption for more security but easier for us users.
Very poor app 1/5
The app works great at displaying codes but if you need it to authenticate Outlook, good luck.
Never fails 5/5
Terrible App on iOS 1/5
I have had nothing but trouble with this app. It is very unreliable, and causes me to not be able to log in to my microsoft account. Microsoft need to enable another form of two-step authentication like a simple text message to my mobile phone. It would so much easier than using this terrible app.
Watch app is useless 2/5
I was very excited about the watch app. But it works 1 or 2 times out of 20 (maybe even more). The app on an iPhone works pretty good. Leaving only 2 stars for crappy watch app.
