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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>Enroll in our beta program!

Functionally, app is working well. I feel confident it is doing said job of making my data safe and secure online. I'd like to see this form of authentication used more! As a suggestion for UI, I would suggest that when prompted for a password that it is made clear this is an opportunity for fingerprint identification as well. Currently I see only an underscore, which I wager may mislead some users into believing that the field is only accepting keyboard driven passcodes.

A very simple way to confirm identity and keep accounts secure which is miles and miles above such methods as (the omni present and painful to use captcha, and the mind numbing process of others which ask even for the day, month, and year you opened your email for example - please!!). It's just one more reason why i constantly choose Microsoft over any of its competitors.

Secure way to log in to Outlook. BUT you have to be fairly nimble. Sometimes the request for authentication is made very quickly on the originating device... which can leave me fumbling to find Authenticator on my smartphone. However, that's a comment more about me than about the app. So .. no stars deducted!!

After all the stress and about a few many tries, I remembered how to use this. Best to add all my email accounts so that I use this app more. I don't visit my msn account often, needed to get to my email and for the life of me, I just couldn't remember what to do with the last part. Just reviewed the instructions above and oh man I'm in. Two funny. I guess there is so much to look at, but it's really simple once you remember. But I'm ok, it's for my safety and fast when you got a whole bunch of email accounts.

Edit: Now everything works perfect! It would be a 5 star review if the code prompt was shown without me having to manually open the app and choose the account and then press the code shown on the second screen. Else, it is a brilliant app guaranteeing that you are in charge of who logs in, even if someone happened to know your password for whatever reason.
