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 you sign in with two-factor authentication
(TFA), you’ll enter your password, and then you’ll be asked to provide an additional way to verify your identity.
You must accept the notification sent to Microsoft Authenticator
or enter the one-time password (OTP) generated by the app. One-time passwords (OTP tokens) have a 30-second countdown timer. Codes expire after 30 seconds for security reasons.
One Time Password
(OTP) does not require you to be connected to the network and will not drain your battery.
You can add multiple accounts to your app, including non-Microsoft accounts such as LinkedIn, Github, Amazon, Dropbox, Google, Facebook, and more. Since the app supports the industry standard for one-time passwords (TOTP), you can secure all your online accounts.
All you need to do is enable two-factor authentication (TFA) on all of 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 via the Microsoft Authenticator app.
Sometimes your work or school account might ask you to install Microsoft Authenticator when you access certain files, emails, or apps. You’ll 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 secure and seamless access to additional Microsoft apps and services without having to sign in to each one. Because Microsoft Authenticator supports single sign-on, once you confirm your identity once, you don’t need to sign back into other Microsoft apps on your device.
