Microsoft Authenticator Available For All Mobile Platforms
Nowadays, it never hurts to be more protected when it comes to your online presence, which is why the apps such as the newest Microsoft Authenticator are quite useful. As you know, even if you have a complicated password, you still can never be confident that you’re completely safe. If you’re not familiar with these types of apps, they are the tools that provide you with an additional layer of protection when you sign into various accounts you may have. Such apps are often referred to as two-step or two-factor authenticators.
Enhanced Microsoft app for the best protection
Previously, two-factor personal and business accounts were separated by Microsoft with Azure Active Directory on one side and Microsoft accounts on the other. Also, according to Microsoft, there were several accounts created for different platforms for the same purpose, but unfortunately there was no application for managing Microsoft accounts for iOS devices.
The application is available for iOS devices from the App Store and Android devices from the Google Play Store. Also, if you’re someone who uses Apple Watch or Samsung Gear, the Microsoft Authenticator app supports these devices as well.
According to developers, the new Microsoft Authenticator has combined the best features of the previous apps into a single one, thus making the entire experience a lot more convenient. One of the best things about the app is that you have an opportunity to log into Azure Ads and MSAs from one interface, which is a definite bonus. In addition to the mentioned benefit, the user interface has been improved with one-click notifications. Its means that when you log into your account, you will receive a message on your phone, and all you should do is quickly click the “approve” button, and you’re good to go. The newest authenticator is replacing Azure Authenticator by updating the app and the same happens to Microsoft Account for Android devices.
