Microsoft Authenticator is a great app for those who want to quickly sign in to their accounts.

Microsoft Authenticator -

Every day we hear of financial frauds, account hacking, online data breaches, theft, and data theft. Microsoft created its own app to address this issue. It works great if you have an Office, Microsoft or Skype account. This app acts as a 2-factor authentication app, and is similar to other password-protecting apps.

The service provider platform will ask for a code every time you attempt to log in to your account. If you don't enter the code, your account will not be accessible. Microsoft Authenticator is a great app for those who want to quickly sign in to their accounts. It can be used on Microsoft accounts and non-Microsoft ones.

What is the working principle of the app?

You may have used another authentication app before. After 30 seconds, the app generates a code and sends it your registered mobile number. Once you have received the code, you will need to enter it into your account log in page. It is very similar to how you log in normally. The only difference is that the authentication application will give you the code.

The working mechanism for Microsoft accounts and non-Microsoft accounts is different. You only need to enter the code if you have a Microsoft account. If you have an account that is not Microsoft, you will need to enter the username and password as well as the code.

All platforms with the ability to receive a one-time passcode are supported by the app. The authenticator can only be used by OTP-generating platforms that are time-based. Let's now learn how to use Microsoft Authenticator for your account.

Steps to use Microsoft Authenticator

Log in to your Microsoft Account in order to access the app.

The login prompt will be displayed on your screen whenever you open the app.
