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

  • Could be simple but it’s not 1/5

    By aubjordand
    They could use a far simpler system than this app that makes you go in circles trying to get the outlook app to allow to to access your account. The idea is simple. The execution is not.
  • Getting worse every update 1/5

    By fiercey13
    They keep adding “features” to make it more and more locked down. Now one of my accounts I need to click an extra click to see the code, which makes zero sense. I’m sure they’ll say my organization did this, but they gave the ability to some administrator at my organization to do it. Just provide a freakin code and stop being fancy — or I’m going to suggest we stop using this piece-of-crap app. Every good app keeps getting ruined like this over time it seems.
  • Codes are wrong 1/5

    By elnaz69
    I can’t access to my instagram account ( from my iphone) Because the codes are wrong Even i set up time and date But it doesn’t work
  • Authenticator 5/5

    By Blately
    This app never gave me any troubles. I recommend this app to any and all people who wants to keep accounts, emails, and gas gamertag safe.
  • You can get scammed 5/5

    By Raymond Cox
    if someone is telling you to approve the code don’t do it, it will allow them to get onto your account and take money or steal your account
  • Warning! This can be used steal acct info 3/5

    By torren is a turtle
    Hello, This is a PSA for parents. This app can be used to authorise account info to be shared. A person tricked my son into download this app and sharing my account info. In minutes purchases were made on my Xbox account off my CC. Took awhile to to recover my Xbox account and they deleted my Microsoft account email. So watch out! Don’t know much about the app except this was able to easily send my info to someone else password and all! I’m sure if used correctly it’s just fine. Not downing the app just a PSA.
  • Hot garbage 1/5

    By explosive diary
    Fails to log in correctly as most Microsoft products do
  • Hate the new version, why add a click? 1/5

    By cjstolte
    What is it that you do with this app 99% of the time? Get your 2FA code! Guess what’s no longer on the opening screen. Your 2FA code!!!! How is that user friendly when that is the main thing to come to the app for. Bury it down a click, I always grunt when I have to enter my code by opening an app let alone have to then do an extra click. (I know the value in 2FA and try to set it up with every account I’m able, but I still grunt haha)

  • Authenticator App 1/5

    By McGillicutty67
    It doesn’t work!!
  • Not Happy at All 1/5

    By Electrokid08
    So I’ve been using this app for around a year or two and a few months ago it started refusing to open and wiped all of its account codes, now if any one of the accounts it was linked to log out at all, I get permanently locked out and lose all data on said accounts.
  • This is a complicated app! 1/5

    By leo vonshtongs
    This is a undeniable app I tried hardc and don’t know what to do!this app is VERY complicated for me!
  • Disappointed 2/5

    By Marcose4
    With the new update if someone has had your account on their Authenticator app previously they can hack into your account and steal it!, it would be very good if they remove the ability to change info on the app!

  • iTMS App Store is broken YET AGAIN 1/5

    By MaxAgHammer
    Well, it’s that time again, folks! Apple has fouled up something on their iTunes App Store servers, and so those of us who are still using iTunes 12.6.5 for Enterprise iOS device support and management are unable to (1) download new purchases from the store, and (2) update existing apps. When you clock the “download” button in the App Store, you see a message “Downloading …” but nothing happens and no error message appears. Similarly, if you click the “update” button on an app update, or the “Update All Apps” button, you will see the same “Downloading …” messages, but nothing will actually download and you’ll see no error message to explain why. This happens for every single app in the app store and every single update shown in the iTMS app updates interface. Maybe the Big Brains at Apple have chosen this particular moment to finally, silently cut off all iOS app download/update methods except those done via the iDevice’s individual App Store interfaces, making it impossible for IT managers to control app purchase/update rollouts across all of their devices in anything other than an anarchic, catch-as-catch-can fashion. Or maybe they’ve just bungled their backend app update servers, like they seem to do with increasing frequency throughout these last few years of continuing decay and cr*pification of Apple’s feeble Web Services offerings. As usual, Apple support aren’t listening to end-users who submit error reports for this issue, so the only recourse for us is to pass the buck by giving one-star reviews to every app update that’s affected, in the hopes that developers with money on the line and access to actual iTunes Technical Support (as opposed to the teenage babysitters assigned to deal with lowly end-users) can get the problem fixed sometime before the next ice age arrives. As of 18:22 on Monday, 23 March 2020, this is the list of app updates I’ve found that exhibit this problem: Acorns American Airlines AT&T Call Protect BestParking Blue Shield of California CARR DocuSign DuckDuckGo Cornell University’s eBird Epocrates Eventbrite Fandango Farmers Insurance File Hub Garmin Explore Google’s Gmail Google Drive Hulu ibotta IMDB Instagram Joule Lyft Lyft Driver Medium Microsoft Authenticator Microsoft OneDrive Microsoft Outlook MLB Ballpark MyTSA Netflix Nextdoor O’Reilly Publishers OmniFocus 3 Pandora ParkWhiz Patreon Periscope Live Video Streaming Photoshop Express Postmates Priceline Progressive Insurance Reddit RegEx Lab Rocket.Chat Route: Package & Order Tracker SmallFish Chess Snapchat Songkick SoundCloud Spotify StubHub Sync - Secure cloud storage Ticketmaster Travelocity Waze WordPress Yahoo Sports YouTube Zillow Zomato 17Track
  • Apple Watch setup is frustrating 4/5

    By @Sigil
    Forget about setting up Apple Watch... I just deleted it off my watch.
  • Fix 4/5

    By Bryan_fan of pockemon go
    App needs to be more secure about 1weeks ago alot of peoples accounts where getting pulled by the old owner or shared accounts !!
  • No Bump Bros 4/5

    By HeavenHillHammock
    I used to rate this 5 stars. It's light years more efficient than Google Authenticator, especially because you can authenticate through watch. However, at .27 they either removed the Watch bump when the notification comes in, or it just stopped working. You have to be staring at your watch or phone to see the notification.
  • No notification on Apple Watch 1/5

    By ChuckMePlease
    After the latest update I no longer receive a ding or vibration on my Apple Watch. It’s really stupid to stop that if it’s intentional
  • Thank you Microsoft 5/5

  • What’s with the 8 digits? 1/5

    By Jetsetter737
    I can’t verify anything in this Authenticator app because it gives me 8 digits instead of 6 which I need. ? I can’t get into any of my apps with this. What’s the fix?

    By KI DALI
  • Apple Watch 5/5

    By Ohh yeah 5511
    I love that it can be used with Apple Watch
  • Can’t Register 1/5

    By Ksmwknsn
    Would not accept my email. Create a new email just for this. Would not accept my password. Changed password using password it would not accept. Go figure? Concluded not worth the trouble.
  • Painful setup 1/5

    Set up process very painful!!!! Always asked for a code in the Authenticator app that would never display Now I can’t do a review as it is forcing me to choose an unused nickname!!!!
  • Went from being solid to terrible 1/5

    By Whatpoint
    The most recent update ruined the app. First of all, it now takes an extra step to get to your code, which is bad enough. The bigger problem, however, is that the code now often gets of of sync when the timer, so often times you need two or three attempts to actually get the right code to log in
  • Nice, but after the latest update... 4/5

    By Jimadah
    After the last update of March 2020, the audible notification no longer works. I checked every setting in the Settings and even deleted and reinstalled twice. Also, after approving, I’ve found that the notification is still there at the bottom of the screen when I open the iPhone main screen after the screen is off.
  • Shows stale codes 1/5

    By elliottschwartz
    1. Open the app 2. Tap an account to see the code 3. Close the app and come back a few minutes later. The app shows a code and a timer like usual. 4. Go back to the accounts screen and tap the account again. The code changes even when the timer says you have plenty of time left. This is ridiculous. The app has one job: show you the correct code. And it botches it! This used to work but it's been broken now for at least a few weeks.
  • Remove Screenshot ability 4/5

    By Rich Nunz
    App is great but MS still won’t restrict the ability to screenshot.
  • Wonderful app, but two things could be improved 4/5

    By 🐸 (Frog)
    Let me start by saying this app works perfectly, the interface is nice, and it is responsive to sign-in requests. I really like the ability to lock the app with Touch ID, but I would like it even better if the iPhone passcode couldn’t be used to unlock after a failed Touch ID attempt. Also, I would really like the ability to disable password sign-in to my Microsoft account on new devices after setting up Authenticator. Other than that, this app is great!
  • Hackers 5/5

    By sheepcraftplays_39
    Hackers some how got a hold of my account and violated the policy wen I click on what the violated is it said that I shared were I was. And of course I think back I did not remember about me send my address. And a friend told me about this if anyone had a problem about someone Violating the policy and it’s not you who did it this app is right for you and I read the reviews it works for most people .
  • :( 2/5

    By Dj_is_papi
    How do you update your info if someone else has this
  • Difficult to use it 1/5

    By Tatia.
    Unable to log in , seems activated but does nor send any notification-it could be simpler but it is very complicated to set it ul
  • Stuck with it 1/5

    By Bobifdxgu
    Unable to remove from Safari. I go to open safari and this app blocks me from getting to my homepage of safari.
  • Eggcellent 5/5

    By niecebitch
    Better than a hard boiled egging in the middle of a dodgy spring down by the fjord
  • No way to transfer to a new device 3/5

    By Obipugs
    My old phone died and I was unable to transfer the settings from my old phones backup to the new phone. The app was installed but the settings gone and configurations. It was a nightmare to have to go and get all my accounts reset that I use Authenticator for. Need to fix this.
  • Good app. Using it for years 4/5

    By Mjababababab
    My company requires us to use 2FA. I liked this one because the Tap to authenticate is very easy to use (It’s integrated with O365 too). No codes to type in. The Watch app makes life really easy - it pops up and I Tap my wrist and I’m in. 4 stars because 2FA can be a pita. ESP on password change day. Every MS product makes me authenticate individually. Office, OneDrive, Teams, Windows. Ugh. At least it just a tap. I use it for home too. Except on my personal laptop. Why? Because 2FA is a pita at night. Having to go downstairs to find my phone just to login. I just want to look something up real quick but the 30day trust has expired and needs to be renewed. I grow tired of it in my house. Usually my iPad is nearer :-)
  • Fcd 5/5

  • Notification Sounds Not Working 5/5

    By Ear Booker
    Simple app but handles my company’s MFA requirement for e-mail well. The only complaint I have is recently, the notification sounds haven’t been working, even though they are turned on and all other apps make the sound.
  • Why do you make me download another Authenticator 1/5

    By weefeeeeeee
    Office adding 2fa but forcing you to download their own auth app so they can boost their download numbers
  • Does not work 1/5

    By Rocky7302
    I continue to get “the request has expired” seconds after request was made. This happens on both the iPhone and Apple Watch app.
  • Don’t trust the backup 1/5

    By verifiedemoji
    I couldn’t recover the backup, it was unable to find anything in my iCloud account... thanks, Microsoft
  • Assuming we all know the acronyms is going to lead to the failure of this app 1/5

    By Non-X
    The tech heads who designed the GUI assume too much. This also takes an inordinate amount of time to set up. The key players need to work in a standard lexicon for users so everyone uses the same lexicon for the items, tasks and things needed.
  • Horrible App 1/5

    By DaveGuy93
    I hope you understand how miserable this app is. It made me re log in a number of times because the link to connect the PC to phone times out. Horrible interface. They make you enable push notifications and took me 45 minutes to setup my app through my work PC. I will be pushing my employer to drop your authentication services. Horrible product. Horrible invasion of privacy. I wish I could give a worse review to get your attention but 1 star is all I can give. Thanks for nothing with this terrible excuse for an app.
  • Don’t get dependent on the Watch app 3/5

    By Yobyot
    I’m an Azure global admin with an MFA requirement. This app was great because you could use Apple Watch as a quick MFA device. But boom! It just stopped working and no amount of removing and restoring the app to the Watch resolves the issue.
  • History 3/5

    By bobspartans
    I like the convenience of the app but it would be great if I can access history alerts. I received a iPhone notification that someone tried to sign into one of my accounts in the middle of the night. When I went into the app there’s no place to review.
  • Will not download 1/5

    By hatorbait
    Lousy that this is required to sign in with but I have great wifi at home and I have tried over 12 times to download this app, it almost instantly fails!!!
