Two factor authentication (2FA or 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 (2FA or 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 (2FA or 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 (2FA or 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.

    Awesome app for two factor authentication. A great application for securing your accounts with 2 Factor Authentication. I also recommend Lastpass, even the free version is amazing. Lastpass is the best password manager on the market, and secures your passwords with the leading encryption algorithms AES 256 military grade encryption. You only need to remember the master password, but make sure you take measures to back up your master pw because if forgot not recoverable. Make recovery options!

    qr code It's free, it's great for security, it mostly works really well, and I can use it for 2FA for loads of apps... But it does glitch semi often, will pop up with the "use your fingerprint" thing and that just doesn't go away and it's over everything else so I have to restart my phone Also, half the time it doesn't pop up, even if the app is open, when I click to authenticate on a site.

    setup Signing into my student account used to be simple and easy. Ever since they started making us use this app to sign in and reset passwords, i have been having problems getting into my own account. It has been 2 hours trying to reset my password. It says that it was sent to the app so i go to the app to reset and its not there. The app is terrible something so simple should not be hard. This does not protect my information it feels like its protecting me from ever signing into my student account.

    android Logging in with a corporate account is unnecessarily troublesome. It is not considered a "Microsoft" account, so you have to look for a hidden menu in order to be able to log in with the corporate account. This is confusing because the user does not know whether or not the corporate account is a "Microsoft" one, so he does not intuitively think to look for said hidden menu.

  5. William Stephens-avatar

    windows 10 Very good, simple, and to the point authenticator app. I love the pop up implementation that is unobtrusive and does not require you to leave the app you are actually singing into. It can also serve as a very good password manager for when you are logging into anything on your phone. If your 2FA supports the Microsoft Authenticator I would definitely recommend setting it up.

  6. Jake Brown-avatar

    Jake Brown


    new phone VERY frustrating. It took a LONG time to setup and I had to set it up using a Microsoft account I didn't remember I had because it was associated with my number. It's from more than 15 years ago so of course I didn't remember the password! Then I wasn't allowed to email the work email, but had to send it to my PERSONAL email! I finally got it logged in so we'll see what happens...

  7. Robert-avatar



    app store Great app, sometimes can be a little interesting when double authentication needs are met for this app then the app i am signing into the web browsers I'm signing into .... You ever forget what you were doing by the time everything has been opened authenticated and approved and 2nd authentication, then oh Ummmm what was I doing ?????in the end I deleted

  8. Mk-avatar



    app not working Holding my breath! Will this help! My email accounts are being held hostage as a result of confusion when setting them up. Most of the time they work when I get a message from Microsoft to check Authenticator. If I don't get a message or I fat finger button pushing, I might as well forget using email. I wish Authenticator would always send me a message if any doubt who I am gets flagged.

    application Need to use this for my work email. Shortly after installing the app, other apps started glitching. A few days after installation, my phone broke down so that text message apps, email apps, and other apps that operate in the background and give notifications simply won't open anymore. I deleted the authenticator and some apps started working normallt again but most didn't. And now I can't access my work email since I don't have the authenticator anymore

    mobile app It has been useless. Microsoft is forcing me to use and it doesn't work. It wants me scan a Q r code from the app buy nothing in the app has a qr scanner. If I can't scan it gives me a number to enter into the app except there is no place you can enter the number.

    Usually work fine but it just approved my login without scanning my thumb. Steps 1. Input email on browser outlook 2. Open authenticator 3. Don't scan your thumb, wait for notification to popup 4. Press 'yes' when login notification popup Expected behavious: Should ask me to authenticate with the thumb first Actual behavior: Didn't ask me to authenticate with thumb, logged me in

    Given the enormous amount of data mining and credential stealing software splattered across the Internet, applications lake these are a godsend. Install it once and - where other services use it too - you can approve app connections, new requests and process approvals without typing your password. Pros: Secure, Fast, Clean Design, No Ads Cons: Not used ubiqutously yet across Google Play, App usable by anyone if phone is stolen (providing you set that up, you did, didn't you??!!)

    Absolute must have! My email was hacked and my personal information was at risk. Microsoft Authentication has made it easy to have more control of my accounts. Download it and use it before you have a problem.

    Really poor quality. Will not allow me to log on even after it gives me a code and always tines out. Worthless and a waste of my time. Getting rid of Outlook as my email as it is now more than a headache and a nusceince.

    Ophir Ben-Yitschak


    This app is fantastic, except for one big problem I have: when trying to add an account, a small window opens asking which account I would like to add. But the window is too small and doesn't actually show the account. So the only option I have is to use the app wherever there's a QR code.

    Want to be trapped in a Kafka-esc nightmare? One where you get looped between Microsoft authenticator and your emails, which ask you to download Microsoft authenticator, only to go back to authenticator then back to emails? This app is for you! As cumbersome as it is useless! Finally, that next level of protection no one needed or asked for!

    If you think on using this app, take a deep breathe and jump to the void of loosing access to all your customers and MS apps. For whatever reason it will no send you an email or an SMS, so you will be locked out, if you are the only admin of your tenant DO NOT USE IT. If you locked out the minimun response time from the DPT team is 3 weeks to 2 months... Yes people you can google it, I'm the global admin and is my first week locked out. 2 more to go.... at least!

    Especially helpful for someone with handicapped hands, since less typing is required. The authenticator flashes on and off the screen so quickly that I sometimes don't react quickly enough, but I think I am starting to anticipate the timing and now know to locate the app on my phone and open it.

  19. Kristine Aarflot-avatar

    Kristine Aarflot


    Security is an annoying necessity; however, the authenticator app is slick as can be and still be safe. One point is, and this could be user error, lol, but it works wickedly so long as your phone or another device is close by... otherwise, you just go old-school password. Easy workaround and I doubt there is a better solution so I gave them a 5 star. I'd do 4.5 so there is still a challenge to improve, but I gotta say, they're closer to the perfect 5, so the developers deserve the credit.

  20. Nedyah-avatar



    Works like any other authenticator. It gets the job done but having to choose a number in order to verify a sign in seems unnecesary. You already have to unlock the phone and unlock the app with your phone password, having to pick the right number doesnt stop any threats, it only provides a nuisance for the user.

  21. Stephen Hui-avatar

    Stephen Hui


    I gave 5 star yesterday but i got an error today I used this app to change password and it will turn to the webpage. Then the problem is it will let me choose using email or this app to verify. How can i find the one time passcode and input it at the same time? It's the bug actually...

    This app can be a great option for backing up your data (further secure the ownership of "your" stuffs) as long as you take your time to set it up and "write" down all the log in Thanks Microsoft!!!!...everything is good if you manage it to be!!!

  23. John Hawkins-avatar

    John Hawkins


    Always improving, but seems as though it shouldn't need it as often. I would like to see nfc used seamlessly between desktop and phones for MFA. If it can be setup, it's definitely not intuitive.

  24. Tin-avatar



    Microsoft is where it's at, Google products are good for productivity but the Microsoft Authenticator is POIFECT! Long story short, you can store ANY account on here. I just recovered my PSN account and surprisingly it's actually stored on HERE? Kinda funny how that worked out 😂

  25. Danny Davis-avatar

    Danny Davis


    I've been working with online security options since the late 80s. A lot has changed in that time but one thing that hasn't, and that is the need for secure authenticating when you are online and expecting a secure and trusted connection. Two step confirmation is critical in today's online applications. This MS Authenticator has always worked and worked well. I highly recommend it.

  26. Takeda Kotaira-avatar

    this is annoying app, but after last update, it became unusable. you need to write a f.. password but time out happens. This is a joke from Microsoft? i need to work but this f. update not allow me to do it. what the hell this fuc. update made? Unbelievable! If for some lucky you type the pass on time.. next page you need to access you have to do every f... steps again. Can't be truth this app from Microsoft.

  27. Henrick Goldwurm-avatar

    Overall, very simple and easy to use. It's just missing a few features like password suggestion, auto-save new credentials, and manually add new passwords. Not a big negative considering they are constantly improving and adding features.

  28. Jesus-avatar



    This is the best Authenticator. I think that we could make it even better with three features. Feature number 1 add folders or categories so I can organize my accounts and be able to make categories in categories or folders in folders. Feature number 2 add an option to put a option for a link to add icon for account. Feature number 3 having the ability to arrange accounts.

  29. ST-avatar



    There's a bug with the App Lock setting enabled. On an authentication request I get a popup that doesn't respond to the fingerprint sensor or other unlock method. The popup doesn't go away so I have to reboot my phone (xiaomi 9t pro).

  30. WesDarylCreed-avatar



    I love it. Makes me feel like I have more control over my old school hotmail. For awhile I was very worried about losing my password since I had to change it so often, having the app is really easy to use. It was very easy to reinitialize it onto a new phone too.

  31. Anthony Struzzieri-avatar

    Anthony Struzzieri


    Haven't used it yet. Hopefully when I do I have no issues with it. I wish there was a way to test it so I would know that I did everything right and I won't have any problems when the big day arrives. Previously I had an account with my daughter and it placed on her IPHONE and it had a different face wasn't or looked like the one I have now. I won't know for sure until they connect with me on the day of appointment.

  32. Ben Alexander-avatar

    Ben Alexander


    An absolute must. The app works good, excpet for two things I don't like: From time to time the authentication push notification is sent multiple times, causing a barrage of push notifications. Asking to click on the right number out of 3 options is not concidered to be secured enough in my opinion

  33. Omni Human-avatar

    Omni Human


    I really cant understand how this app worked on my phone, i want to authenticate but when i input my pattern or FP scan it still request more, like crazy, i cant do anything, this is really really annoying, because i forced to use this app as a two way verification. So dev, do you have some advice for my problem? I'll uninstall it instead, and stop using to way auth, i lost my confidence for safety but i grant my simplicity back. Thx

  34. Bill-avatar



    excellent 2FA app, simple to use except does not work well with the new "feature" of additional app lock which doesn't work at all with older versions of android and its generally a pain to use. if that worked i would give it 5 stars.

    Works but has a few problems If you install it for the first time on a clean phone and you haven't setup your msoutlook email on the phone it can ask you to use the authentication app you try it then it asks you to use your email which you haven't set up it can have you running round in circles but once it's set up the app is very good works well it's almost flawless

    What an improvement? I love it and the fact that it also has a feature with 2 FA codes. But it drains battery like a malware virus. I am certain of this because my phone keeps telling me that it is drawing an unusual amount. And when use Bitwarden, Authy or Avira's Password Manager, there is no battery drain. Also, a dark mode and the ability to enter logins independently would be welcomed. I"d choose this app over the others but the battery drain needs fixing.

    It used to work great, now the passcodes are not visible for github and third party apps, while they are still for Microsoft accounts. Also the passcodes that are not visible are not copied into clipboard even if the message says they are. Basically can't use it to log in to github and have to fall back to sms codes etc which is VERY annoying... This happens on two different android phones with full permissions set on the app

    I wanted to backup all my authenticators unto my tablet. Duplicating my accounts on the Microsoft Authenticator has been one of the easiest endeavors. During the process, I also noticed a few extra features and options, including the ability to retrieve my passwords that are saved in Microsoft Edge on my main computer. When I finish with my redundancies, I shall explore these other extra features and options more closely.

    I am forced to use this app for work. I have now been trying to set this up for 40 minutes. You have to find just the right angle (on a brand new phone) for it to even scan the code, which took forever. It then said qr code invalid and then asked me to input code. The code is in mainly letters but only gives me the option to input numbers. Update: finally managed to link the avvount by typing in a long code and the vode the app gives me is...invalid! Thanks for wasting all of this time for me

  41. Brian G-avatar

    Brian G


    Bugs seem to plague this sometimes good application. When using multi-faceted authentication, the factor is confusing. Between using mobile texts to push notifications, to sometimes also pseudo random numbers, Authenticator sometimes works. Then, some of the times, after removing the application and then adding it again to my Android phone, a user account needs to be added repeatedly.

  42. Cory Olague-avatar

    I was practically forced to get this app due to my school district adopting Azure, single sign-on. I'm not happy about having to be forced to use my personal device or personal email to sign into my professional account. I was okay with the phone number part, installing something or giving out my email without the choice of opting out is irritating.

    there was a problem 80004005 could not complete task. this is a learning process for me. so seems the app is working. it cant fix any problem so flaws like this will happen. maybe in another 29 or less years all systems will be flawless.

    This is great app. It is hard to get anything working reliably on Android and this app works great time and time again. I use Google pixel 3xl and I use notes apps seemlessly across operating systems without login issues.

    Even after just unlocking my phone with my password I have to retype the same password with this app. So I have to type in the same 8 charachter password on the phone twice 3 seconds apart. What is the point of that? Typical Microsoft.

    Very useful app... Until the authentication times out and you have to go through a stupid process of logging in or reset your password, just to use the authentication to log in again.

    It mostly works. But some push notifications are lost or you need to open the app to get prompted. Years in and it still doesn't have a dark mode (despite the rest of O365 having it), which is pretty bad for an app with like 4 screens. Also the autofill stuff doesn't work if you have an work/school account - so most people who would use this app.

  50. Jay Asylum-avatar

    Jay Asylum


    It gets confusing sometimes. I assumed I would use this app regularly when I'm using multiple devices and browsers. I often get notifications to approve logins, but many of those security precautions don't matter because I log in regardless.

  51. Andres Rodriguez-avatar

    Andres Rodriguez


    It's very easy, extremely quick and convenient to access your accounts anywhere you like in a secure manner. Firstly, go to an account you would like to access, type your user name, and a notification is sent to your mobile in milliseconds, approve it and proceed to your account. I highly recommend it.

  52. NH Komaiha-avatar

    Minus 2 stars because it shows a glimpse of the pin code when turning the screen on (how it happens? >> -keep app open -turn the screen off then on -the app is visible completely for a whole second -then the biometric authentication kicks in and hides it). I suggest blacking out the app when the screen goes off and returning it only when fully authenticated.

    I trust it somewhat so far, but I still have my recovery email address and it's password, followed by a redundant backup address for password recovery. Developers, Can you tell me what encryption Authenticator is on? " 64bit, double Dez?" I worry about this program hanging in the cloud, I use VPN, but still easy for super cookies to sniff out the outer domain

  54. Manasvi Sareen-avatar

    This is good authenticator for MS account. But it's password manager feature is completely half baked. 1) Does not offer to save few password (face issue with ubisoft account) 2) Can't add a password yourself, except the import feature. 3) does not offer to generate a auto password. 4) Trouble storing 2 passwords for one site. It does not always work on mobile application, when I imported from lastpass, half of the app password it did not offer to fill.

    I have tried using this app several times. Installed an uninstalled. No matter how hard I try - I NEVER receive any sign-in notifications within the app. All I get is sometimes (not always) an error message saying it cannot process authentication notifications for my account - but there is no guide to how to fix it. It might work for you - but it doesn't work for me, and nobody seems to care why. Oh, sometimes I can get to a sign-in option online (e.g. on Azure) that says "type in code displayed in app". But - this always expects a 6 digit code - and my Authenticator app never shows any 6 digit code. The only thing displayed are 8 digit one-time-passwords. Come on maaan? Is that the best Microsoft can do?

    I had reset my Android phone and had to reinstall MS Authenticator and recover my previously backed up accounts. The MS account's own two-factor verfication process, the app provided me with 4 numbers prompted me to choose the right number which I accidentally pressed the right one. This happened while I was trying to install the auth app itself, which doesn't make sense at all. Something's definitely not right in the process. I will truly appreciate if the developers review the process.

    It's useful for quick access to my personal ms account and good for the office 2fa as well. You can back it up to your ms account as well which is better than some other authenticator apps out there. (you know who you are)

    One of those apps that you take for granted, but it always works and it makes your life a little bit easier. being able to approve logins on my phone without having to type complex passwords on all of my devices is genuinely allowing me to keep more secure passwords without having to always remember them.

    Has been the most convenient authenticator I've used so far. The push notification when I need to authenticate sign in is actually very useful instead of having to open the app and type in a code. Very user friendly.

    "Stay signed in" option suddenly disappeared. I now have to use this app at least once an hour to log on to my company's different softwares. More than annoying. I've scoured the options and settings, there's no where I can find to opt to even bring up the prompt "stay signed in".

    Downloaded exclusively for my business related accounts. I really liked it, but it recently messed up my codes and I couldn't log in! I don't know what happened. Thankfully only had set up 3 accounts. Also backup is only available with a personal account?!

    This app is a MUST HAVE for all 2 factor authentication needs. I highly recommend also having Google's Authentication app as well to split up your accounts just in case. They're both easy to use for beginners but really any 2 factor authentication app is a must have. So use whichever one you're comfortable with. However MAKE SURE TO DISABLE ANY 2 FACTOR AUTHENTICATION before switching phones or resetting a phone!

    It says enter my screen unlock but there is no place to do so. A smiley face winks at me but nothing else happens or can be done. Also at some point (I have no idea how this occured) I was prompted to touch a number to unlock my account on my computer but nothing happened. ????????

    Wonderful. The safest way to store your password and login even in a not personal computer without typing or “using” your password. If your phone is unlocked, to prevent anyone from using the app, it requires your password. Perfect, not for microsoft account only.

    I cant change my accout details on ps4 because your settings website dosent "support specified http verb" and i went through 5 MINUTES of endless rabbit holes with the authenticator app, resetting my password, getteing sent many gmails, FOR THIS?

    Very nice app that helps increasee security while making it easier to get securely logged into your accounts. It's the best I've seen this far and effective . Don't forget your password and have the three devices that have your only access stolen... you won't easily get as round the system to reset your passwords....

    Glitchy. Sending authentication. Approved except it doesn't work except on the third try just about always. It's better than not having it, but if I choose the right number and choose approve, no 2nd or 3rd attempt should be needed. Edit: seems more stable

    App make the phone sluggish. I have 3 apps under the work space ( outlook / teams / authenticator ). Whenever I use one of them the keyboard and other things on the phone begin to lag.

    It is not working in new Samsung Galaxy latest models due to the latest feature Work Profile of these phones now being separate from personal. It does have a work profile version but the MFA will only send to the personal version. So it is an open end unclosed loop.

    Would be great if it worked, my phone just prompted me to enter the number on my computer screen to sign in, I did so and my computer is still sitting waiting for something to happen. Oh look, it just timed out because it didn't receive the response from this stupid app.

  87. Ben-avatar



    Love the simplicity of authentication portion for my Microsoft account. Would be nice to manually add passwords to the password section without needing to import them. The passwords that are imported can however be edited manually which is better than Google's built in password manager. Microsoft Teams Safe has add/edit capability. Curious why Safe hasn't been merged with Authenticator.

    The best authenticator out there. Has backup support. Allows you to sign in without a password to microsoft sites just by unlocking the phone. Brilliant! Password auto fill is great, can you also add password generation feature?

  91. Stephan Tamminga-avatar

    Stephan Tamminga


    To enable password management in the Authenticator app all Enterprise or school accounts need to allow autofill. Why? Users can log into browsers using different accounts, so the relevant browser settings should determine this behaviour, not the Authenticator app. The current requirement is unacceptable for BYOD users whose company has autofill disabled, but want to use the Authenticator for private accounts and password management for personal use.

    Trying to sign in. Have to change screens. Takes ages to open the app on some sign ins you run out of time so have to go through the process more than once.

    Great App for storing my passwords in, I definitely feel a type of security with this and it makes me not worry that my account might get hacked etc. I would definitely recommend. I would still like more options for stuff, but it's super easy to use.

    It's good. Sometimes it can be a bit annoying when, for example, sites ask for authentication every time they're used, but generally it's okay.

    Authentication process is fundamentally broken. On Android its app name is different to its icon name but its icon name is IDENTICAL to Google Authenticator. When I try to sign in to Skype the password has changed because at some point I had to change my Microsoft password. Then I try to change my Skype password but it requires me to sign in to authenticator but there is a pending password reset. So I ask for temporary password. But is this for Skype or Microsoft? I copy it but paste FAILS etc.

    This app sucks. My email required the app. The links would not work. Took an hour to get it working, by then I had missed my conference call. Why cant they just send a text code like everyone else? No, they want all your information so they know everything about your. 2 thumbs down.

    Back to 5*, Latest update shows option for recovery on the first login screen. OLD: Who has designed and approved that you need to SKIP 4 screens to get the Begin recovery option screen? 🤦🏽‍♂️ If I am signed with same email it should show that I already had a backup and do I need to recover it. Or at least it should show Recovery option on FRIST SCREEN itself.

    Unlogic behavior. When a notification arrive for approval I sometimes open the app and asked for fingerprint. a second after the notification pop and on approval I need to identify myself again with fingerprint!!!!!. For example, in case of up to 5 second from open to approval passed, don't ask for fingerprint again.

  105. jwiley17-avatar



    Works as intended. It's an authenticatior like any other, my issues are lack of settings. Would be perfect if this app had dark mode, the ability to individually change picture for each code, and the ability to completely remove the password tab. Would recommend looking elsewhere for an auth app for now.

    So far this app has worked without any problems. My one reservation is my uncertainty about how secure it is in comparison to entering a password. On the other hand it is easier than trying to remember a separate password and typing it in.

    Is OK ... I would appreciate more settings for notification style ... in IT administration, 2fa with authenticator with notifications poping out behind lockscreen, app security and acctual confirmation of login, well .. it becomes annoying to the pont of thinking about turning it off ... which would be a bad thing to do. Try to implement more notiffication customization and a way, to have the confirmation accesible without verifying credentials all the time .. :)

    Much Improved. In the past I've had much difficulty getting this app to work and approve my logins. Because Microsoft tends to mess up my password for some reason. But this has been working like a dream for the past few months.

  126. Chadwick Barrs-avatar

    Chadwick Barrs


    My only complaint is that all logins should have a "push-notification" setting and the app should have a dark mode. Otherwise, it's absolutely fantastic.

  127. kiuvzkuzv-avatar

    Because of past security issues, we were compromised and had to change everything but our SSN's. I am GRATEFUL for the Microsoft Authenticator app. It's on our laptop, smartphones and desktop. No subscriptions and it's free. I highly recommend.

    Well at first the app itself acted like it was some sort of desktop version wrapped into a mobile type page as it kept bouncing back-n-corth changing from what appeared to be a mobile vrsn of this larger desktop website. IT is based on facts from the verifications of & the benefits of testing. This should definitely be we looked into by the tabled water. ion water comin out every year.

    Microsoft has a way of confounding facts. Local names vs. Microsoft names to login to official website. Authenticator makes some of these moments better. Avoid locking Authenticator; it is another circle not needed when qt home or office.

    5 star for Authenticator alone. The Authenticator has worked reliably. Microsoft, though, has issues with their 2-step verification. Numerous forced password changes despite correct passwords. When you try your old rejected password you are still told you entered an old password!

  146. mfungyz-avatar



    App works well on LG mobile and never had any issues with it performing push notifications for both work or personal accounts Microsoft accounts. Only negative is the lack of available icons for 3rd party MFA accounts. The ability to add custom icons would be nice.
