Muy buena pero le falta agregar una opción para buscar cuando tienes muchas cuentas
Consider others first 2/5
I used to always use Microsoft suite of apps for everything including the Authenticator...
But having worked on a non-profit researching the privacy policies of apps, as well as being disabled and having a visual need to be met in my apps, I no longer use this app for personal or business...
The app lacks overall readability and ease of use I expect in all accessibility friendly apps. The links for legal documents are often not correct or lack required information.
And most of all... why Microsoft made GitHub their only means of secure account recovery I do not know, but for a year it has been this way for me and I’m moving on to other apps!
One of the cleanest MFA apps that covers all of the requirements. 5/5
By Austin Hynes
I am trying to sign in on my phone and it wants me to use that the app (that I can’t even sign into) verify my request to sign in.....I’m just confused
You’ll regret it 1/5
This thing has my email messed up. I switched phones and was careful to switch all info and passwords to the new phone before resetting the original phone. Everything EXCEPT this app now works. It won’t sign it. I can’t use it but now my Microsoft outlook is linked to an app that doesn’t work. So I’m about to have to agree to 30 days of no access to my email, during tax season, in order to reset my password manually. Sorry I ever downloaded this thing.
Becoming annoying 1/5
All I want todo is use PowerPoint and Word for my classes, yet you guys have to make it 100x more difficult, don’t you?
Adding accounts has been easy and app is easy to use.
Great App 5/5
Very great app
Edge & Microsoft Authenticator 5/5
Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Authenticator work great together to manage the passwords. Great
Authenticator wrongly thinks i have Apple Watch. Won’t recognize i only have Iphone 1/5
Authenticator wrongly thinks i have Apple Watch. Won’t recognize i only have Iphone
Works great 5/5
Use 2FA for everything and this app works flawlessly
Doesn't work - send you in a loop 1/5
Had to use this for email authentication... Tried setting up and follow to prompt only to have it send you in a loop and fails to connect anytime you try another method. Seems to be a very common problem. How could a company as big as Microsoft make something that flows so poorly.
The worst yet! 1/5
By Lil Genius
This app is not useable because for some reason Microsoft cannot figure out how to allow a user to have an email address that can be securely used if they have an organizational email, such as a university, but are an individual account. They first forced me to use two-factor authentication which seemed like a great idea, but if you use it, you cannot reset the password for your Xbox without canceling your gaming system and reinstalling it! It takes you in circles changing your passwords! It would be great if they could make their system work, but now it is only an illusion! There is not any person available to tell the problems.
Another app that just wants your info

Best auth app 5/5
By Blaine Joseph
Needs easier account add, but over all great!! 5/5
Love the security and verification process is a breeze.
Adding accounts needs another secure and easy entry.
Thank You 😃
Better than Duo Authenticator App 4/5
I used to use Duo as my Authenticator but not all my apps I added would show up with an icon or I couldn’t edit the description to identify which Authenticator code I needed to select to enter. I would have to try different ones any try to remember which ones were which.
Horrible App 1/5
By programers are stupid
Horrible programming. This app is very confusing and simply does NOT function
By Sassy Senior 83
Microsoft is so much more than I need. I am 85 years old. I started the application beforeI realized this. I play games mostly and use Facebook to connect with my friends. Can you help me?
Endless loop 1/5
I need the code from this app to open OneDrive on my laptop, but i also need a code from this app to sign up for this app.
So now I’m in an endless loop,I’ve wasted two hours of my workday trying to access my files that I was able to access last night, and I’m no closer to opening my OneDrive. Brilliant design Microsoft. Just brilliant.
I lost all my codes and I’m locked out of a very important account 1/5
I always had iCloud backup on in case I ever needed to restore my phone. Well today I had to. I restored my phone and logged back into iCloud and redownloaded the app... and it kept reeling me it couldn’t find a backup. I am now locked out of a very important account with no access to it whatsoever. Really really upset right now. Don’t trust iCloud backup.
Great app 5/5
By ahmad AL kurdi
I can’t get the app to do anything at all. The instructions are completely useless. Near as I can tell, all this really alleges it can do is add two-factor authentication. I followed the instructions to the letter and received a code with no place to enter it & other times received nothing at all.
Some days later . . . . Okay, a provider pretty much begged me to use the app. I carefully followed the instructions from the provider & Microsoft. The process appeared to complete & the provider’s website acknowledges the presence of Authenticator. However, the sign in process has not changed, not at all. I still have to use the usual password or Face ID. What has this accomplished? Zero. Either the program is vapor ware or the instructions are so utterly opaque as to be useless.
I’ve taken the app off of my devices. Hopefully that won’t rise up to bite me.
Why do you need my data? 3/5
Apps like Authy do not track you or have data linked to you at all. So, why does Microsoft red my personal information when Authy can do the same thing without?
Utter garbage. 1/5
About a week and a half ago I denied a request for authentication so my work accounts were locked down (as a precaution and as expected), and ever since then this reeking pile of hot garbage has utterly stymied all attempts by myself and my employer’s IT department to regain access to my accounts on my mobile devices. The different strategies we have used are too many to go into here, on both phone and tablet, but they all end with “verification failed.” So thanks for that pain the a55 Microsoft.
Crashes on restore 1/5
The app keeps crashing when I try to restore and it never finishes restoring so I end up with half of my websites
Great app 5/5
Definitely a lot easier than remembering all the different at passwords
help please 2/5
By Paul Mannheim
app is locked and pressing “unlock” does nothing. i tried to update it it will not.
Just Works 5/5
Works great. What more could you ask for.
Makes logging in and phone migration a piece of cake 5/5
By Ralph Jr.
This app is great. Not only can I get 2FA codes, but the push to login to Outlook is awesome. I no longer use a password. Logging in should always be like this.
Today, I discovered a new feature, all my codes got automatically migrated when I logged into my outlook account in my new phone. That process used to take five hours setting up a dozen new 2FA codes on all my accounts.
Thank you Microsoft for solving this use case. Excellent app!
Microsoft Authenticator 5/5
By GranDad E Purp
Works Great !
Best 2FA available 5/5
Best Authenticator available as google 2fa does not backup
I’m sorry guys I’ve read that a hundred times the description of how the Authenticator works it sounds good but it also sounds like there a step I’m missing to operate it’s a password our account information I think.
This is been a caterer is one of the best ones I have ever used no matter where no matter what no matter what kind of items like iPads PC iPhones regardless anything with a password and I totally forgot this specific indicator was sit there and bypass everything and do a face recognition and you are done outstanding
The best athencator ever 5/5
By Greg Paulus
It is a very easy to use app to help my games and work!
Dark Mode? 5/5
By Steve Wrona
Please? This is one of the few apps that I use multiple times per day, and I always forget about that shiny white background.
This authenticator doesn’t work 1/5
This authenticator keeps taking me around in circles over and over and over and over I keep putting in everything asked me to and when I put it in the fingerprint it just disappears and I have to start over. This is the way every Microsoft product works for me. I don’t know if I’ve been hacked I don’t know if Microsoft hates my guts. I was I know is Microsoft makes it so that I can’t use my computer that I have paid for. If there was another platform besides windows I would go for it Microsoft is ruining my life
It does what I need it to do. 5/5
It does what I need it to do, and does it without issue.
I checked my code which is 8 digits but the code to log in will only let me put in 6 characters!!!
Accessing my account 2/5
Access to my Microsoft account seems to keep changing and now I can’t even log on!!!!!! 😆
I took a niga account using this #StainGangBackdoeSh
Very Inconvenient App 1/5
More Inconvenience than actual Security
Why do you need the authentificator app to log into the authentificator app?
Version history not helpful 5/5
The version history info doesn’t provide anything about the actual bug fixes. It would be nice to know if a problem we have experienced has been fixed
Decent but needs work 3/5
I really like the MS Authenticator and the setup works well and it’s easy to use. The issue is when you juggle multiple devices with differing OS’s or you get a new phone or device. You basically have to setup many or most of your 2FA’s all over again. I have a backup on iCloud from my iPhone but it does not seem to have a way to just open that backup or import it into my iPad Pro. I like it overall but it honestly has a ways to go before I can fully use it.
Horrible App 1/5
Don’t get this app - it keeps sending you in a loop and locks you out of your account; doesn’t migrate to where you can manage it in time for the few seconds your code is revealed. Apparently Microsoft didn’t use any common sense beta testers. The WORST —- ZERO stars
