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.

    Why not set this app to link to the Microsoft account? I had about 10 accounts in the app and after a phone reset i had to set all of them again. Cannot believe that you do not provide a backup option for the accounts in case you loose the phone - upgrade the phone -etc .. Gishhhh..

    I'll give it 2 stars because it works, but it ONLY works with 1 code!! How is that helpful???! I use this way for all my accounts and I can only use ONE and the others added don't even work after you add a new one. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but this is wrong. I'm deleting once I find a better app with multiple codes allowed.

    As usual, Microsoft + Mobile App = ****! The fact that a code has to be entered along with a user ID and password when logging into a MS account tells you all you need to know.

    1. Transparent tile 2. Easier copy-paste

    Does what it needs to do, but would be nice if there was a URI scheme to automatically fetch the code for a login...or at least make the "copy to clipboard" a primary function with a button next to the account, rather than having to do the long press and tap.
