Use Microsoft Authenticator for easy and secure logins for all your online accounts using multi-factor authentication, password-less autocomplete, or password. You also have additional account management options for your personal, work, or school Microsoft accounts.

Getting started with multi-factor authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) or Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) provides a second layer of security. When you sign in with multi-factor authentication, you enter your password, and then you’ll be asked for an additional way to prove it’s you. Approve the notification sent to Microsoft Authenticator or enter the one-time password (OTP) generated by the app. One-time passwords (OTP codes) have a 30-second countdown. With this timer, you never have to use the same Time-Based One-Time Password (TOTP) twice and you don’t have to remember the number. One-time password (OTP) does not require you to be connected to a network and will not drain your battery. You can add multiple accounts to your app, including non-Microsoft accounts like Facebook, Amazon, Dropbox, Google, LinkedIn, GitHub, etc.

Getting started with passwordless

Use your phone, not your password, to sign in to 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. Once signed in with two-factor authentication (2FA), you will have access to all your Microsoft products and services, such as Outlook, OneDrive, Office, etc.

Getting started with autofill

The Microsoft Authenticator app can also auto-fill passwords for you. Sign in to the Passwords tab in the Authenticator app with your personal Microsoft account to start syncing passwords, including saved passwords in Microsoft Edge. Make Microsoft Authenticator the default autofill provider and start autofilling passwords on apps and sites you visit on your mobile. Your passwords are protected by multi-factor authentication in the app. You will need to prove yourself with your fingerprint, face ID or PIN to access and auto-fill passwords on your mobile. You can also import passwords from Google Chrome and other password managers.

Microsoft personal, work, or school accounts

Sometimes your work or school may ask you to install Microsoft Authenticator while accessing certain files, emails, or apps. You will need to register your device with your organization through the app and add your work or school account. Microsoft Authenticator also supports certificate-based authentication by issuing a certificate on your device. This will let your organization know that the sign-in request is from a trusted device and help you seamlessly and securely access additional Microsoft apps and services without having to sign in to each. Because Microsoft Authenticator supports single sign-on, once you’ve proven your identity once, you won’t need to sign in to other Microsoft apps on your device again.
