Microsoft Authenticator Will Help You End Using Passwords

Posted by at 8:46 am on April 20, 2017

Microsoft has a new tool for Android and iOS device owners to use when signing into Microsoft accounts.

The phone sign-in functionality relies on the Microsoft Authenticator. People can add their Microsoft account to either the Android or iOS version of the Microsoft Authenticator mobile app. Then, when signing into a new Microsoft app, people will only have to put in their username. The Authenticator will pop up a notification on users’ phones that, once approved, unlocks access to the new app.

“This process is easier than standard two-step verification and significantly more secure than only a password, which can be forgotten, phished, or compromised,” said Microsoft in a blog post.

Microsoft Authenticator is free to download from the Google Play Store and iTunes App Store.
