Two factor authentication (TFA) is easy, convenient, and secure when you use Microsoft Authenticator. Use your phone, not your password, to log into your Microsoft account. Just 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’ve signed in with two factor authentication (TFA), 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 (MFA) even if you still use a password, by providing a second layer of security after you type your password. When logging in with two factor authentication (TFA), 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 one time password (OTP) generated by the app. The one time passwords (OTP codes) have a 30 second timer counting down. This timer is so you never have to use the same time based one time password (TOTP) twice and you don’t have to remember the number. The one time password (OTP) doesn’t require you to be connected to a network, and it won’t drain your battery.

You can add multiple accounts to your app, including non-Microsoft accounts like LinkedIn, Github, Amazon, Dropbox, Google, Facebook, and more. Since the app supports the industry standard for time based one time passwords (TOTP), you can secure all your online accounts. Simply enable two factor authentication (TFA) on all your accounts. Then, when you sign in, you’ll provide your username and password as usual. Finally, you’ll enter the one time password (OTP) provided by the Microsoft Authenticator 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.

requires following permissions on your android device.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

create accounts and set passwords
Allows the app to use the account authenticator capabilities of the AccountManager, including creating accounts and getting and setting their passwords.

take pictures and videos
Allows the app to take pictures and videos with the camera. This permission allows the app to use the camera at any time without your confirmation.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

close other apps
Allows the app to end background processes of other apps. This may cause other apps to stop running.

read the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to read the contents of your SD card.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

draw over other apps
Allows the app to draw on top of other applications or parts of the user interface. They may interfere with your use of the interface in any application, or change what you think you are seeing in other applications.

use accounts on the device
Allows the app to request authentication tokens.

control vibration
Allows the app to control the vibrator.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

receive data from Internet
Allows apps to accept cloud to device messages sent by the app's service. Using this service will incur data usage. Malicious apps could cause excess data usage.

    as an IT company that services other businesses we are loving the experiences that Microsoft is putting forth with their backend for multi-factor authentication on azure active directory. It has been outstanding. There are still a few things that we are hoping to see in upcoming product releases, such as forced MFA on Windows 10 login, but we know that it is an active endeavor and that Microsoft is improving the product all the time.

    qr code I used to love this app. But today when I was installing it on my new phone, the ui started with asking me to signin to my microsoft account which I did. After that I enabled cloud backup to recover my backup. It showed backup and asked me whether to replace. And yes it simply replaced my new empty data to the server instead of what I expected. Now I am locked out of most of my major accounts.

    setup This app has become the go to, for regaining access to my website / email addresses that I've neglected for so long, that I no longer recall my passwords. The icing on the cake for me is that this app works in conjunction with the fingerprint sensor on my Note10+. To whomever created and update this app... please do not break it or ruin it by attempts to make it better, remember the old adage of "why fix it if it ain't broken."

    android The app is decent, but it is in dire need of an interface update. Handling more than a handful of authenticators is tedious. Make it a grid with user configurable icons (and for the love of God, give us a few common ones by default) and show the code when we click on the grid item. Also, search. This app could be so much better. Edit: It has recently improved somewhat. Definitely a step in the right direction, with a more compact default view. Edit: Custom icons when?

    new phone Security! I love having the power of approving logins. This was prompted by me receiving to many verification texts. When I logged in and looked at signing attempts and locations they were from all across the world. With so many apps and other services linked to my email. It would be a security nightmare if it got compromised. I'd 100% recommend this app.

    app store I like the ease of using this app with the one-tap sign-in on my phone. However, I need an authenticator that works everywhere. I now use three of them: the two big boys and Authy. Microsoft needs to step up its authenticator game to give me a reason to make this my one and only. I am their customer elsewhere, so I would be open to this.

    login This newest update SUCKS!!!! What Happened to this app? The authenticator codes used to be 6 digits now there are 8. This is not useful nor is it helpful to help me log in to my work email. What happened? Was there an update that screwed something up ? Now I can't have access to my work email on my phone thanks a lot Microsoft This is a horrible app. Used to be great now not so much.

    application All around the app works well. The recovery feature for Microsoft accounts is basically useless, as it requires you to effectively go through the entire registration process for adding an MFA device to an account anyway. There are more reliable applications for protecting your TOTP tokens, so I would look elsewhere in that regard. For Microsoft accounts, it's your best mobile-based token authentication, which it generally does well.

    The reason I chose Microsoft's Authenticator over others was due to the cloud backup feature. So I had to factory reset my phone today and made sure the backup there was current, which it was. After the reset I try to "begin recovery" and after logging in to my old account it says "Unable to Recover" and now I'm locked out of many accounts. Thank you Microsoft.

    I was previously using Google Authenticator. I got a new phone, and realized how hard it was to transfer my 2FAs. After doing a few minutes of research, I find MS Authenticator. And it has backup and sync with other devices. This means I now have this app on both my work phone and personal phone and can access my codes from either device. A feature Google's Auth didn't have. I also like the UI of this app more than Google's. Google's app did the trick, but this app contains QoL improvements.

    Great App, Easy to Use If It Sends a Notification.... half the time it asked me if I want to use my authenticator app and when I say yes I pick a number it doesn't switch over & me I just get stuck there and it's really annoying.. I have a Google phone and g phone on G-Force something I don't know it's your second best one I think where it was a year or two ago I believe it's a G-Forge 6 or something like that __

    Terrible app. I was locked out from my Hotmail account as I haven't logged in for very long. I accidentally turned on 2 step verification. When I try forgot password option it is asking me to enter the authenticator code. The problem is I lost the phone that had the app years ago. When I tried to install this app on my new phone it is asking me to sign-in. So. it is getting me going around in loops. Now I know why I ditched Hotmail for Gmail. Good riddance.

    Incredible far. Great authentication and security tool. There is nothing wrong with utilising different platforms, and using apps from different developers. Same can be said for hardware too... Anyone here remember the Acorn Archimedes? Now that is a history lesson in itself. I still have a broken Commodore 64. Sinclair Spectrum...First tried one in Zimbabwe (My land of birth) back in late 1990. Apple IIe, a Commodore Vic 20, IBM PC & clones, Amstrad PC 1512 (Thanks Mum), etc. 😉

    So far it seems to be easy to use. Still worried about security as they have expanded its ability to steal info wothout my express ok EACH time it looks at something (like searching messeges, and tracking location). Not sure if can do these things but since it asked, i have to assume it can.

    for the most part it is a really good app but I did run into a glitch where after I removed my pin for a short amount of time it wouldn't let me re-add it to my Microsoft authenticator but other than that it is great for reviewing recent activity and security options so yeah I definitely recommend this app if you have a Microsoft account and want to keep it safe

    I am still learning about this authentication stuff but it seems to be fairly easy to add a count to it and to receive the number for the app that your authenticating. I will keep using it for authentication and hope I can understand it more as I use it.

    Fix. The app overwrites old accounts if the auto generated name of a new account is the same. I once forgot to write down the key of an account I just created. I wanted to reset it. The vendor required I input the old and new 2fa passes. When I created the new 2fa in this app, it of course, over wrote the old and promptly locked me out of the my account.

  21. Justin McNutt-avatar

    Justin McNutt


    Allows multiple inputs too close together. An accidental screen touch and suddenly you've reported your company site for "fraud." Any authenticator apps that allows inputs for separate questions within 500 ms of each other is asking for trouble. Generally a good app but this little bug has caused trouble for us.

    Authenticator helps keep track of both your personal, school and work accounts. It provides extra security to your account as they can only be accessed upon your approval. This is great because there are any suspicious activities on your account, no one can get thorough it unless you approve. Hence I'll ask, why would you approve something you don't know? Get the app and add a 2nd factor authentication to your accounts. Its amazing.

    2FA is so awesome now. I just reinstalled Windows 10 and couldn't remember my Microsoft password, which wasn't stored in Chrome for some reason. Then I noticed the fresh Windows 10 setup offers to use the Authenticator app to sign in - during Windows setup - before even getting to a desktop screen. And it freaking worked. Mind. Blown. I'm the traditional IT guy of over 20 years, the innovative stuff now is so impressive. Thanks for adding an unnecessary but very useful feature!

  24. Eric Santiago-avatar

    Eric Santiago


    So far so like it should. I've used the program for like 1 maybe 3 years now at the least and can't remember one hiccup. Seems to always be a fast and smooth transition from pc to approving the identity request through the authenticator on my android device.

  25. Justice Knight-avatar

    Justice Knight


    Some delays in receiving the notification to approve login attempts. Would be awesome to remember a device that has previously been given authorisation. If using on multiple devices it would also be great to have all accounts added, synced not just the option to transfer. Loving the peace of mind when it comes security, but notifications for verification gets a little excessive and frustrating sometimes.

    Just a plain awesome app using it for a long while now couldn't ask for a better app out there free also and had not let me down does what it says I would give a 10+ and I don't get paid for these words trust me just use it and let them know how it works not a thing to say bad about this app Dave

    App seems to work well, but I can't get Gmail to stop asking me to enter my credentials. It goes off constantly with an ongoing notification that is highly annoying and disruptive when trying to use my device for work.

  28. Adel Ammari-avatar

    Does the job well, but needs two things, a better interface. And a fix for the bug where sometimes when you approve a request from the notification popup, action is not submitted needing us to reopen the app and reapprove. Quite annoying.

    My experience with this app left me very impressed. After forgetting my password to my Microsoft account, I was allowed to sign in without a password because my laptop gave me a number to select in the app on my phone. It couldn't have been simpler, or any quicker. Thanks Microsoft! You've done it again.

    For many years I was a little user of the Google Authenticator until one day I lost my phone and lost $42,000 in Bitcoin because I was only able to recruit him since learned that having an authentication app on one device and one device only even if it's a different device is poo Rd and Rihanna this so amusing things like Keith has one password LastPass things like that are necessary and Microsoft authenticator acts as a very good authenticator it's compatible with Reddit and make yourself as we

    App is garbage, it has poor explanation on how to be used since it is also confusing, what's the purpose of a 1 time use code that changes every 30sec. Also it asks for my password all the time. It's a stupid idea from some morron just trying tu o make some money.

    Won't allow me login with my school email that's connected to my school provided OneDrive account. OneDrive requires me to verify my identity every time I login to a new school computer, making this apps failings more frustrating. I don't know how well it works for personal accounts, but the fact that I'm not allowed to login to a school email makes this pretty worthless for me.

  33. Birger Utvik Odland-avatar

    Birger Utvik Odland


    Works as expected. Had some difficulty in the start as Asus has an battery app that limits applications to automatically run in the background requiring me to launch the app for each time I needed to use it for 2fa. Changed the app to be allowed for background it works very well. Not having a noticable effect on the batterylife.

  34. David Hunt-avatar

    David Hunt


    Terrible app, I've just had to recover a hacked account where the hacker has also downloaded authenticator, although I've managed to recover the account and turned off apps in security, authenticator app is still linked, therefore the hackers is too, they can still see activity and recovery emails and are able to have another go, turning off all apps should automatically unlink all authenticators on other devices. Massive oversight.

  35. Bob Rozalsky-avatar

    Bob Rozalsky


    Probably one of the best authenticator out there as it's easy and simple to use. No hassle whatsoever of setting up the 2FA for accounts. (Well for me atleast) Also app locking with biometrics and PIN locking is a nice extra step in security as no one can unlock it except yourself and you can't screenshot the codes which is quite nice. Would recommend over Authy and Google Authenticator.

    I turn on cloud backing but the approve request doesn't work anymore. If i deactivate the cloud backing it works but if i lose my phone or factory reset it i can not access them ever again like am sorry but would you fix this cause you already caused someone to be logged out of his accounts and can never access them so it would be good id you fix it and help him

    Gotta say, the Authenticator is handy in the "FORGOT MY PASSWORD" moments. I did have an issue when my S10+ got crushed and I couldn't get into my Samsung account to change equipment or anything for a day maybe. It was sending the code to my s10+ which of course was crushed. All good!

    I'm not going to lie, I might know a few people allegedly involved in breaking into stolen phones. Any phone/device or breaking into the "unbreakable"(that alleged claim is supposedly their bread and butter).... This app gets a 4 star because, while not impossible to bypass, it put up a good fight! A worthy opponent!

    I intially installed this app to get authentication in my all microsoft accounts. Months later after my phone breakdown period I reinstalled microfoft app. And when I logged into it it again asked my for authentication.

    Authy is my authenticator of choice, but sometimes you need a separate one for your Microsoft account -- and that's where Microsoft's own authenticator app comes in handy. It does the job that Authy won't (passwordless login!), and does it beautifully.

  42. COLLINS OBODO-avatar



    It's ok although some improvement is needed in synchronizing the phone app lock and the app lock. The fingerprint lock isn't smooth lots of errors. The app locks too often and when I try to unlock it with fingerprint it unlocks but locks again and again and again, until I use my digit-pin

    Works great, well as the next best authentication application. However, I would recommend using this versus Google or another social media one that you have several other apps linked too. Microsoft can control all your google passwords so it's not all being controlled by the same company.

    They tell us more has nothing to do with the app. And your app sucks because I was forced to get a new phone and now I'm locked out of everything, even though I am using the same account and my Gmail account is secured, can't be hacked anyways. But forced to use Gmail just to save other accounts. Stupid method better off without this since Google's app is better... Thanks for trying to disable my computer btw Micro Suck...

    I am Still checking in to it. Plan on getting off into it as soon as I have some spare time. Looks like a great app though, and the security and integration. With other apps should be interesting. I'll be looking into the type of protection used in the firewalls, since its connected to them though. Hopefully it uses selective ports and not something hackable. Has it any original ssl certificates? How about the optimization suite is it continuous or does it follow a schedule?

    The Authenticator app is really convenient for my work-related authentication needs.

I'll continue to use this app.

    This app hasn't let me log on for 2 days now and now I'm deleting app and downloading it again and still no difference.

    Instead of having to login into your Microsoft account when you have forgotten a password this app allows you to select a code when you forget and have you verify it on another device. From there you can go about whatever it is you were doing. Saves time and is very easy to use.

    It is a functional 2 factor authentication. However the functions goes in circles, authenticate your email address with the app or receive email code. But you are unable to sign into your email for the code, and your Authenticator app needs you to verify via app or email. It gets really frustrating and time consuming.

    It doesn't automatically backup whenever a new account is added to the Authenticator app. To Backup the new account we have to delete the old backup and again take the complete backup instead it should automatically backup whenever a new account is added.

    The simplicity using of this App for instant Authinication capability is a gift from stressful time-consuming frustration! It could not be any easier and effective! Thank you autonomous global software Giant... Keep this up and resistance will be futile! 🤭

    Not a good app. It worked at first but when i got a new phone i reinstalled the app it it says my email doesnt exist. And i have to use another way to log in. So they text me each time instead.

    If you accidentally lose this app with two factor authentication active, you will never be able to recover your account. Microsoft Outlook does not have a way to recover your account when you have two factor authentication set up and lose credentials to it accidentally especially this app.

    I was locked out of my account because they said there was suspicious activity. I could not get past their sign in questions for a couple of days. I saw the choice of the authenticator and got right in. It saved my phone because I was about to throw it across the room.

    This app is easy to use and it really helps keep your accounts secure. Other account security apps made me feel like I spent too much time and effort trying to access my programs. I would recommend this app if you just want simple and secure.

    Sometimes it is difficult to open when a new request is made from an app on PC. Notification should be like the one Google uses that presents clearly on top.

    Does exactly what it needs to, and does it quickly. I don't think I've ever opened the app itself once, the notification is always right there when requested.

    It serves the purpose, but I am having issues with it not opening when I need to select the code (no notification) this may be my settings, but if it doesn't pop up a notification, just open the authenticator manually and your choice of verification codes will be there.

    Id give this app an even 5 ★'s, but would have to be (in my opinion, that the security logins of one and/or many other apps used along side to this app would change)! In regards to the autofill options that are used and linked into this particular app .. other than that, i love it

    It's easier to login with this app and it is also very safe. Even if u lost you're phone you can sign in to your Microsoft account using traditional password. Very convenient app.

    So far so good is working our kind of well for me. it's pretty hard trying to remember a password or putting in the wrong password constantly so this app works out quite well, I must say.

    I does what it is build for but and quite has a very clear UI. When working with 10+ accounts its gets harder and harder to fine a specific entry. I would really love to see a simple search bar and maybe also a method of tagging to differentiate between work/home.

    Very good app for when a password escapes the brain I do like this a lot. I continue using Authenticator. I haven't had any problems with this app, so in my opinion, it is a great app.

    Does a cat sleep in the same place all the time? All the big cats never do, and neither do the multiple software users stick with one brand. This authenticator is legit. Utilizing your cell and other devices the assurance saves. Microsoft Authentication gives that peace of mind so the big cats can rest comfortably knowing their data will be protected. Now, where can I find more catnip?

    I hate this app. It NEVER works. It asks for a 6 digit verification code from my email but the authenticator app used an 8 digit code. When I try automatically it never works. I HATE Microsoft.

  96. Karim Litefti-avatar

    To approve the number i have to unlock the app via pattern or either via a fingerprint, and even if it's correct it asks it over and over, until the app generate a pop-up that the phone have to be rebooted... Next time I just type the password instead going via this app

    I was enjoing this app until I removed app data by an accident and all my accounts are useless with this app. So I will go and set up all authenticators again. I know this is my fault but adding all lost thigs again when you use this app is very painfull.

    It will save me having to remember my Password. I was annoyed earlier as having changed my password, I still coundn't access my account. This should help me to sign-in, without mucking about.

    2 times now it puts me in problems. I had a phone changed. I made sure back up my accounts before and when I re download the app the only account it retrieved is the main Microsoft account which is the recovery account. Never again!!!

    So much easier to do this separate from like a password holder because most of the passwords I have are for apps which are Google and I also have the Google Authenticator and I have the Microsoft key which I believe only works in conjunction with a biometric for your device on mine it came with one.

    I added my student account to this and it was working fine. Then when I deleted my student account from the app (I was given NO warnings), anytime I tried to log into my student account from any device it would tell me to open the app and get a pass code, when I open the app I'd be greeted with an error and no code! I've lost access to my student account because of this!

    This is secure and you don't have to remember so many passwords in the new digital world. Only thing of critical importance is to keep your mobile safe and secure by applying a screen lock and if you misplace it then logout from all Microsoft accounts thorough browser.
