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.

Reviews From google play store

Loosing passwords all the time as my Accounts are Hacked, to create new passwords n remembering it again is tedious with Microsoft Authenticator it is a lot easier for me. Easy n safe, highly recommended even for someone like me who is not tech savvy.

Seemed to work as expected. Not getting a lot of ads (so far!), but I don't know how it works beyond allowing me to log into my Microsoft account with my now-connected Android phone. I defaulted to a "4," for this reason, alone Of course, I reserve the right to update that rating in the future...! 😏

The app is one of the best out there however it lacks the ability to synchronise your setup across multiple devices using multiple platforms and there are ones out there that do. The only advantage that Microsoft has over its competitors is that the Microsoft Authenticator is able to perform passwordless logins and two-factor authentication for Microsoft Work, School and Personal accounts. I suspect that is a deliberate attempt to prevent other potentially better systems from displacing them.

I was using it fine but something went wrong with my phone and I had to reset & redo it. Now authenticator does not trigger at all. I tried accessing my work emails from the outlook app on my phone & on PC, but can't get in because there's no notification that comes up on the app, no code, no reaction, nothing. I don't know what to do, tried rebooting, uninstalling, reinstalling, nothing is working.

I've used this with no issues in the past, but today ran across an issue where any authentication attempt was met with "Error communicating with server". Force stopping, clearing cache, changing network, etc, nothing seemed to resolve the issue. Saw suggestion to remove and re-add account, but now when I get to the Setup Phone Sign-in area, I get "Something went wrong. Please try again".

Simple. Intuitive. I use to have like 3 or 4 different authentication apps for Steam, Star Citizen, Uplay, Origin and Microsoft. It felt ridiculous having so many apps for the same single purpose and they all use the random number strings with 30 sec countdowns that can give you a false sense of urgency and cause a typo. Microsofts approach is much better IMO. No typing or switching screens. Simple 1 touch system that auto pops up and you just touch the right box and approve. I only use this now

Very simple to set up. The only issue is there is a slight delay between the request and the pop-up notification on my phone, maybe 6 seconds or so. Not a big deal at all, but comparing to Google's Authenticator app which is almost instantaneous, it feels slow. Again, not that big a deal, so really it's 4.5 stars.

Looks good, even with Icons of the Companies. But adding a new account is really inconvenient. You have to click on that 3 dots, which should be replaced by just a "+" next to 3 dots. Afterwards it immediately opens the camera, it should just show the camera frame and the text input field right below so you dont have to click "enter manually". Now the most annoying thing: it asks for the name. This name is then used for both, the account name and the Name of the company this account is for. Why?

It works. As far as authentication apps go, you want to mess with it as little as possible, and I really only need to remember that this exists when you want to log into something else. Additional security and less remembering passwords? Yes please.

The app itself is great, but it needs asynchronous backups so it can work cross plaformform. I can create a MS 2FA back on Android and restore from it on another Android device. However, I was not able to restore from the same backup on an iOS device as it used iCloud. Also the Android backups aren't instant I needed to turn off the backup and turn it back on for it to complete a new backup file. There should be a backup now option, or when you make a change, it should say 'changes saved', otherwise you have to go to the settings and then look at the details tap. Microsoft wins when it comes to just approving from a popup, however Authy is still king in my book for the cross platform and the Chrome extension. All very positive moves from Microsoft though.

I've been using this app for a couple of years. It works well enough and is usually pretty quick to do its thing in the background. Last 2 months though I've had to uninstall and reinstall (not the quickest process either ) just to get a couple weeks of use at a time. The worst part is when this app malfunctions, it brings down the whole Office suite of apps with it.

It works fine it just needs to show the device name and IP number of the device that you are authenticating. I have several devices with software installed that ask for authentication and I'm never sure if it's one of my devices or a bad actor.

Good overall, BUT: in one of the recent updates "cloud backup" was introduced, but there was no mention of how it works... For example why don't you use some local passphrase to unlock the backup? For now all that means that IN CASE someone has access to my account he has access to ALL MY 2nd FACTORS at once, without any additional LOCAL security. For now I see that you are probably encrypting the configuration with some parameter related to my account, but the main thing is that you have that control, it's not in my hands completely.

Waste of time. Excel says I need to approve a code in Authenticator. Authenticator says I have to approve a different code before it will allow me to approve any codes, but I cant approve my log in code because I need to be logged in to approve that code. In other words, I need to sign into an app which needs its own self approval before I can use a different app. No wonder people are on Google Sheets; that works.

Excellent app. Works flawlessly authenticating every sign-in to your Microsoft account, be it in a browser or in Android apps that support this type of authentication. Very secure and without any bugs it's much better than Google's own authenticator app. I strongly recommend that you use this instead of other sign-in methods. Thanks to the Microsoft devs for a perfect app.

This app is great because Microsoft and Hotmail are terrible and I always have problems logging in to my account and my Outlook account always says that there's a problem and needs to be fixed, but I can never seem to be able to get it fixed. Therefore, whenever I'm trying to log in, I use this app because it seems to be the only way I can get into my Microsoft accounts

Major problem with the authenticator. It wants to send text and info to an unused phone number. When I got to my Microsoft account to update the phone#, it tells me that my new phone# is already being used. How is this possible, as I just recently received the new number? I cannot sync my phone because it keeps going into a vicious circle with how to access a different way.

Cloud backup not working. Switched to this app only for that reason. Says there was a problem with network connectivity but I can't figure out what's wrong :( Edit: It works now! Very quick response from the team addressing the issue. Revised my rating for the app.

It's all a bit super secure, and I don't know why I need all this cross reference to the phone from the pc etc. But I guess it's all in the name of protection from hackers. So given all that : this app works very quickly and easily to verify who I am and get me back into stuff on my pc.

I'm having trouble signing in to my Microsoft OneDrive: every time I use the authenticator here, and get a number 2 match up with, AND I GO TO MATCH IT, it ALWAYS SAYS that the numbers DON'T MATCH UP, & i have 2 put in the password in order 2 gain access 2 my OneDrive again! (I have been known 2 forget many a password VERY EASILY, & the alternative login method just mentioned is MUCH EASIER 4 me.... PLEASE PLEASE FIX!!

The approval screen some times (less than 20%) doesn't pop up. I'm assuming something that has to do with either the app is running or not in the background. Really appreciate the cloud backup option.

Since switching to passwordless login, I noticed a huge flaw in the way this app or rather the system works: I have no clue which Microsoft application on which of my devices is asking for a login, if any. Hence I can only deny the login for security reasons and wait to find the application complaining at a later point. Minimum information that the login request should entail is the location and the application, maybe even the device. This problem made even worse with the applications logging in quite frequently. I wish there was a way to at least increase the perioud without relog.

This is absolutely one of my favorite applications because the two step authorization really protect your Microsoft account by having to approve it from laptop/tablet/desktop and can be used across all your devices. All you have to do is when you you go to log into sensitive information on your computer or whatever is just tap the number that shows up on you computer screen on the authenticator app notification on your phone and your in. I highly recommend this for Microsoft security. It's fast

App is great and really enjoyed it but after changing phone and reinstalling the app I can't manage to add my personal Microsoft accounts anymore. Keep getting the same message: "Something went wrong. Please try again later". Really bummed about it.

Insecure!!!!! When I log in my hotmail account on another computer and the browser asks for approval on my phone. When I open the app, the approval appears immediately without my finger print security. This means that you can approve the access for the website via the app without any security. This should be fixed. Please fix it asap. Thanks

It's tedious to show/hide a code, it requires two steps to show/hide a code. I have over a dozen of accounts, I like the codes to be hidden by default to keep the account list compact. But it is not convenient to toggle the code. Please just put a button there, you can just show/hide the code with just a single click. Or you can just toggle the code by tapping the account name. And, please add "show all codes" and "hide all codes" menu items.

Can sign in initially but notifications don't work, authentication also stopped working due to "network errors". After a few minutes sign in also seems to stop working. Cannot setup phone sign in anymore due to a "Something went wrong" error. Tried clearing cache / storage, uninstalling and installing again, nothing seems to work anymore except perhaps the codes generated.

It works. I'm only writing this review so the app will stop bugging me to rate it. I use it rarely so I can't give it an honest review. Seriously? God, quit pestering me for inflated reviews! I can't trust reviews anymore so I don't give them unless I have to. My "user experience" is underwhelming. Mediocre at best. This is the most milquetoast of reviews. Does this app even really do anything worthwhile as far as the security of my personal data goes? Do I even care? Does MS even care? Whatever.

Once i understood the app, I Love It!! I use it to authenticate new installs approve access and even 2nd step verification for my masters program. One click verification vs pictures email codes or even secret question is a no brainer. Small learning curve expecially when you switch phones. One bit of advice authorize the new phone before resetting the old one.

Does what it says on the tin ... Awesome app big pat on the back Microsoft... So easy to sign in to Microsoft when needed and for that I give a high 5 !!! ... I'd Recommend anyone with a Microsoft account to get this .... It's always worked and never let me down.

Absolutely horrible. When checking Microsoft Outlook for corporate email, I'll get push notifications via notification bar, then click on message via notification bar to open Microsoft Outlook mobile app, and the message disappears only to be later found once the app syncs. I constantly need to "sign in" Everytime I try to read emails or use Microsoft Teams. Our company switching to MS Authenticator was a bad move. Please fix this bug.

Makes authentication more secure and less of a headache. It is clear that humans are the weakest link in the information security chain, so using multifactor authentication brings more security to your password. This app is excellent.

Finally backups. You don't know the issues this caused when I switched my device. I was locked out of an application/site for six months while they confirmed my request to remove token authentication was valid. Thank you for the backup feature. I wish I had it six months ago.

Works as it should, now with backup and recovery. I used to use Google Authenticator and moved to Microsoft for some of the additional features and haven't looked back.

This is the best authenticator app for Office 365 and Microsoft accounts. I just wish it synced to the cloud so I could restore when I change phones. For that reason I use this for those accounts and Authy for all others. Update! Microsoft Authenticator now supports backing up to a cloud account, so five stars!

Convenient. At some point, I had to reset my Microsoft password, and because of their retarded password limitations combined with never needing to log in: I got into the "reset password, every time" loop. With authenticator, I just grab my phone and call it good

I think Microsoft has the best implementation of 2FA. It's quick and easy to use. I wish there was some smartwatch integration so I didn't have to pull my phone out, but overall this is an A+ job.

Unlike most authenticator apps, this one is truly innovative and does more than simply give you a code to type in on your machine. This is the kind of forward thinking we need for the future

Backup and restore now available. Thank you! Would love to see more services use either the Windows Hello style authentication requests or the time-based OTP. Does anyone know if the Okta protocol (time and push) is proprietary? I know you can scan the QR with Authenticator but it doesn't work...

Worked fine for months, but then stopped sending me notifications. Eventually I was caught in a loop where I couldn't verify my account through the app and couldn't remember my password. Guess what? Now I have to wait 30 days with an account lock out to change my password. Christ.

Microsoft Authenticator app provides an extra level of security. Having more security is always a good service to have. Easy to use and self explanatory Recommended for all interested in additional safety and security.

Easy to setup new accounts. Notifications and approvals works as they should. And I like the fact that you can backup registrations/accounts to cloud and restore them onto another device.

I like a good multi-factor auth app to help increase security. This is definitely one of them :) This is especially necessary in these times of widespread hacking breaches and a lot of sad stories of unsuspecting people being bboozled online. Recommended.

Its good, helps me when ive locked myself out but sometimes when told to tap the # it gives .e, there nowhere to find it. It goes to a blank all white page. I end up having to try another way option. Its a Hassel but in the end...a long end... I get into my acct.

Doesn't work at all, especially not with Microsoft own products. Trying to register for the MS reward program? You get back always to the same login. MS Sport? No way buddy, you lost the login and no matter what way you try, we simply ignore it, even if on the authenticator it says successful, you're still not logged in.

Really easy to set up and works perfectly. Makes two factor authentication so much more secure than via your mobile phone number, and is much easier to use. I actually recommend this over Google's authenticator app as it has better features like fingerprint auth and notifications.

Do not download this app, god forbid your information change you will be locked out for 30 days of ALL your microsoft accounts. That includes xbox, so if you pay for xbox live and get kicked out then microsoft will literally tell you to bad AND THEY WON'T EVEN REFUND YOU! Some business model they got there, steal from the customer and laugh at them when they try to resolve the issue and very who they are.

One of the better 2FA apps out there. Allows for a bunch of different options, including a quick and easy way to login with a notification prompt which is good for people who don't use a password manager or just don't like entering a password, especially on public computers.

I love it, but if you lose your phone or you factory reset your phone it is hell trying to regain access to the accounts you added it as a 2nd step verification tool.

The best authenticator app. It has a super clean interface and it's very simple to add authentication websites. Also comes with the ability to lock the app with a passcode/pattern/pin and biometrics (fingerprint) which is very nice.

Using it for 3 accounts so far. It does the job. Nothing fancy. Also nothing that makes it a lot better than other Auth apps (seems this is a mature market).

I like two-factor authentication. This is a great app. However, the heads up notification that appears does not work. Always says error communicating. I always have to unlock phone and open app to authenticate.

It works, as long as you know where you left your phone. Seriously though, as long as I have that 2nd layer of Authentication I rest a lot easier. The 10 to 15 seconds it takes to process is well worth the wait for the security.

Best app to login faster. There is although a bug. When I try to login to app if freshly installed, I get option to authenticate using this app. When I choose it, it freezes. Kindly look into it. Otherwise improve login validation for this app. Can be done using SMS.

Got locked out of my account and I had to get a code to get back my private pass word. I believe it was the Authenticator instructions. It did not tell me l needed 8 characters, ñot four. Therefore I went through the BS to get the phone number, then follow the directions of a foreign language trying to speak English. Surely your software employees can do better...? Agape' Randall

Very difficult to set up. Appears to be circular - you must approve a code in the app to set up the app, but of course if the app is not set up you can't approve the code. Takes a while to get around this by using password instead. Dreadful waste of time.

So far so good, this is the best authenticator for 2FA enabled accounts. In addition to that, there's even a backup and restore feature just in case.

Has worked without missing a beat so far, exactly what you'd expect from an Authenticator app. Available when needed, invisible when not being used, and always working in the background.

This app makes it easier to sign in when I have my phone w/ me, but using it means I input my password less & forget what my password is. I have to reset my password more often, but not as often as when I don't use the app.

Works great and gives me at least some reassurance that my account is somewhat as safe as it can be, without paying for a monthly subscription to a password app!

Very fast, accurate and reliable authenticator. For Microsoft apps only, but I've had to use it many times and it has never failed me.

One of the best apps ever! Helpful for people that always forget their passwords and I've never had a delay with the authentication process on any device.

Makes life super easier. I always have issues because Microsoft won't accept my password half of the time, but with this I can just tap and go get some work done.

Handy to authenticate a login to OneDrive quickly. But times out too quickly, so you often have to reissue a code. I gave 3 stars because juggernaut Microsoft could do so much better.

I'm actually pretty amazed with Microsoft for this thing. The latest update packs by far the most advanced security feature set an authenticator app can offer to this date. Truly legit!

Not happy with this... has locked me out of my microsoft email account while abroad and no idea how to unlock it... app not clear to a novice how to use gives a code which you are supposed to use in 30 seconds but where???? Really upset - wish i had not installed! No probs in uk. Didn't bring passwords as not previosly needed and thought this would be more secure and straight forward to use...NO.

Works great and makes logging in/security easy and painless!!!

Amazing. I wish they could have a desktop version of the app too so I can still authenticate without being near my phone, or if I lose my phone. I'll give 5 stars if and when they launch such an app.

Hi, moved all my accounts to this app, about 9 accounts, did a restore off the phone, and restored this app with my account, only 3 of 9 accounts are recovered? How can we check our that the sync is correctly done? 3 stars = lost much time with recovering all the other 6 accounts

Surprisingly good app. Works all the time and gives me a sense of security. My account is inaccessible to anyone who knows my password but doesn't have my phone

Easily my preferred authentication mechanism and great for supporting Microsoft password less and other 2fa accounts. Even better now backing up is possible as this is always my worry with these types of system.

Installed for new mobile phone, hung coz I needed to verify via the app that it was me installing the app. This was almost 2 years ago and will probably happen again when I get my new mobile. Not used since and it just takes space on my mobile.

Generally crazy easy. Google authentication is sometimes a nightmare. And Adobe authentication is such a pain. Microsoft goofs a lot of stuff up, but not their authentication process. Minimal frustration :D

Probably the best you're going to find. Works well and seems to be robust. Just takes awhile to get the hang of using it. You will get fast with some practice.

Pretty good, really like most of the features, now that I have like 20 accounts in here though it sometimes takes a very long time to load.

Microsoft does it again! Seamless integration with my iOS and Android phones means that I can add an additional layer of security to my digital self. I just means there's one more step that leaves have to get past in order to steal my digital ID and information.

I did forget my password, but this app made it easier and more secure to login with just few taps. I know it sounds a bit less security but it is actually security made simple.

The best authenticator app. It notifies you when there is a login attempt and you can approve it if it's you. If not you can deny it. No password to enter.

It is not giving approval notification ( within time) neither accepting app code to complete process. Receving approval notification too late. Need to identify the bugs in this version.

Really good. Supports both MS auth as well as custom 2FA using QR codes, with a handy backup feature in case you need to reinstall. With about 8 different services added, this app does what it needs to, and well.

It doesn't always come up as a notification when I have to approve a number and I have to physically open the app and try it all again that's the only negative thing I can say

Just one thing, there is no way to change the icon on "other accounts", so all look the same. Besides that, everything's there, fingerprint protection, trustworthy backup, working restore. Second place. ;)

Greaat app made even better with the recently added support for backup. I particularly like the selective code display by account rather than some apps like Yubico Authenticator which have them all on display for anyone passing by to see.

It was a long time since I used my tablet and I couldn't remember my pw. Thank goodness I have the authenticator app. I was in in less than 3 min.

I have had a large number of situations where I was not comfortable with the phone's security. This application has given me the comfort and ability to access by my phone without the concerns that I have been dealing with.

Authenticator seems to work but won't log into my email. When I try to use the authenticator on my email it keeps asking me to download the app, after that it won't even sign me into the account to use my email.

Exceptional, I don't have to reveal too much data about logins and get responses from multiple platforms on a centralized database.

Does it's thing. Whenever I need to login to anything Microsoft related, I use my password and get a notification to allow access. 2 factor is the present, hopefully the future is more secure.

This app makes it so much easier to use the 2-step authentication. I have never been locked out of any of my accounts since using this app. Google Facebook Microsoft

Tried the new cloud backup option of this app, and all it does after asking me to login to my Microsoft account is ”Unable to setup cloud backup. Please send logs". Best part is there is no option to send logs in that pop up!!!

It's great when you know it's you logging on to your email. The second layer authentication definitely removes any doubts that my account is very difficult to compromise and gives me a lot of peace of mind

Fantastic Authenticator, let'bes hknedt can we expect any less from Microsoft, after all (I am bias) but they just make evrrhtbj so easy to use once you understand how to interface, but once you get a hour or two on their devices, programs or accessories it's a breeze! Thanks Microsoft

The basic functionality is fine but as of today (10/25/19), I can't get Cloud Backup to work on Android 10 on a Pixel 4. Update: Cloud backup now works, thanks Microsoft.

No, the backup screen is still unavailable. It's just a black white page, in start it's leading a little bit on top and then just a white screen. That's all

Very convenient app. Saved my bacon a few times too. Would be nice if it had a remote save point, I just lost 2/3 of my items in it due to a wild animal attack.

Works well, but many of the accounts don't have the logo. Like Instagram and Nintendo. Wish there was a way to add them.

Extremely easy and makes me feel more secure. If you don't want your accounts hacked you need two factor authentication.

Very useful app bc it sabes you the trouble of trying to remember your password in case you forgot it. I really like that feature bc I do tend to forget my passwords a lot

From Windows - xbox you cant look at life in tech w/o Microsoft, & earned it. That's increasing, from access to free OS like versions of linux or new windows 10 coming that runs with minimalprocesses, +xbox becoming the powerhouse for pc & councel gamers, allowing consumers $$$ towards portability. Despite avail VPN Security or fingerprints/eyeballs, a old & common security keylogger or shoulder surfers. A solid auth app like this wont guarantee safety but will help reduce it drastically.

Installed the app on an old Android 4.4 phone. It requires way too many permissions so it's not going on the main kit. After scanning the QR code for a service I wanted to use it with it simply crashed. Classic Microsoft.
