Description

The Authenticator app generates security codes you can use to help keep your Microsoft account secure. You can add your Microsoft account to the app by scanning a barcode or by manually entering a secret key. The app implements industry-standard security code generation and may also work with other services and providers. You can learn more about keeping your Microsoft account secure at https://account.live.com/p. ** The Authenticator app is not supported for use with Windows Azure Multi-Factor Authentication. Use the Mutli Factor Authentication app for this.

Has become worthless...

This used to be useful, but the inability to copy/paste codes on W10M makes it useless. Getting a text notification is easier because that appears above the text entry. Also, after using Microsoft Account app on Android has me wondering, why can't we have that too?!

It works, but...

I think should be more useful if there could be a way to add the code in "Notifications" because is hard to use in the same mobile, I mean unless I memorize the code is not other way than "Task view".

Love it

It needs better directions for setting it up. I had a hard time getting past not having a way to use the barcode scan function. Once done, it's extremely useful.

Needs same features as on Android

After trying the MS Account app on Android, I realize this needs the same tap to approve features for authorizing MS accounts.
