How to Use Microsoft Authenticator

  1. Launch the Microsoft Authenticator app from your app drawer.
  2. Microsoft Authenticator is a multifactor app for mobile devices that generates time-based codes used during the Two-Step Verification process. It means that aside from your typical login, you have to undergo another authentication before you can access your accounts.
  3. To get started, you need to turn on the 2-factor verification on your personal Microsoft account using your PC. 
  4. On your computer, go to your Security basics page and sign-in using your personal Microsoft account. At the bottom of the Security basics page, choose the more security options link.
  5. Go to the Two-step verification section and choose to turn the feature On. You can also turn it off here if you no longer want to use it with your personal account.
  6. Once done, you can now add your Microsoft account to the app.
  7. Open the Microsoft Authenticator app again from your app drawer.
  8. Select Add Account from the Customize and Control icon in the upper right. 
  9. In the Add account page, choose the Personal account.
  10. Select Sign in with Microsoft to add your account. A QR code can be used when available, but you can always add your account by signing in with your username and password.
  11. Sign in to your personal account, using the appropriate email address, and then select Next.
  12. Enter your password, and then select Sign in. Your personal account is added to the Microsoft Authenticator app.
  13. The Microsoft Authenticator app can also be used to sign in to any Azure AD account without using a password.
  14. You can add both Microsoft and non-Microsoft account with the Authenticator. There is an option to add a Google Account, GitHub, Amazon, and even your Facebook account.
