Azure Authenticator – Provide a second layer of security

[App] Azure Authenticator changed to Microsoft Authenticator

Azure Authenticator  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.

Azure Authenticator user reviews :

So long as you are operating it on a newer device or one with enough ram to move quickly, it’s very nice. Otherwise it’ll move slowly and you might even have to have it open to recieve notifications (tested on various phones). But as the devices were cheap, it was to be expected – you get what you pay for. Love the app, would love to see the security coding as I am studying such topics in college right now.

Great service, only problem is that the app was asking me for the OTP code for phone sign-in… in the app itself. So I had to back out of the code entry screen, wait for a new OTP code to start counting down, and then quickly enable phone sign-in and paste the code.

This app has been a blessing. MA allowed me to recover a lost master password for an ASUS Laptop. I thought my locked PC was toast. Know it’s recovered. Thanks to MS Authenticator for allowing access to old Hotmail account. DLSMD88

New version much better Massively improved. Looks much better and being able to silence the notification is a real bonus! Now if only it worked on Android Wear as well…

Please add smartwatch support to approve on watch and approve from notification screen.

Thanks for the January update! The pin entry field has focus and the soft keyboard is already shown after clicking the notification now, which saves time. Also the refreshed design is cleaner. My first authentication attempt ended with an error, but I take that just as bad luck. If I won’t see any delays or missed notifications, I might update the rating even to 5 stars.
