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

** The Authenticator app is not supported for use with Windows Azure Multi-Factor Authentication. Use the Mutli Factor Authentication app for this.

    Near perfect app. A transparent background for the live-tile would be much appreciated, as I use it alot.

    Slick app. Works as if it were Google Authenticator and others. Really well done and syncs with a time server for reliability. Wish the icon background was transparent.

    Excellent app. Easy to use. Please add theme matching (transparency of tile) for WP8.1

    Great app can we have a transparent background please for when its pinned on WP8.1

    Works as it should. Be great if it could also be used to generate app passwords as opposed to having to goto the accounts page. And whoever reads this, please pass on to the accounts crew, bring back the viewing of the list of trusted devices. Its still nice to view these no matter how they work now.

    Needs to support transparent background on WP 8.1

    Good app. A couple of things: 1. Solid background color live tile is annoying in Windows Phone 8.1 If you have a long list of accounts, scrolling through a long list of just text is annoying when trying to quickly find a code.
