Passwords are used for any activity that we do online, for instance, accessing your email account. Passwords protect one’s identity on the website, discussion groups etc. But with the advent of new technologies, passwords as security means have become obsolete. Also, the hackers can easily hack your accounts by circumventing your passwords. To avoid such things Microsoft have brought a new functionality to its Microsoft Authenticator app in which there is no necessity to use passwords to protect your data.
Microsoft Authenticator app is a two-step user verification app that helps you to quickly and securely verify your identity online for all accounts such as Google, Facebook etc.
The sign in process of the Microsoft Authenticator app is very simple. The user just needs to login into their account, for instance, Facebook by entering username and password. After this, the authenticator app will generate the one-time password, which is the key to access that particular account. This is similar to the two-step authentication process which is also provided by other companies.
But, the new update from a Washington-based company for its Authenticator app have also eliminated the need for passwords only for the Microsoft accounts like outlook.
The updated Authenticator app produces a security code that users can use to keep their account secure. You can add all your Microsoft accounts to this Authenticator apps simply by scanning the barcode or entering the one-time code.
Hence, you can skip the entire password entering the process and with a single click on your phone, you can access your any Microsoft account. To save your time for entering the passwords and username you need to install the updated version of Authenticator app on your Android or iOS device and Windows 10 platform. Also, Microsoft stated that as of now they are not planning to bring this update to a less used version of Windows platform.
If you already have this app installed on your smartphone, you just need to skip the setup process and enable the phone sign-in feature.
For the users who already authenticate their accounts using a phone, have to enter the email address which is linked to this account. After this, you will see an alert saying that either approve or deny access to the Microsoft account. If a user clicks on approve button the account can be accessed promptly without entering the password.
The Authenticator app is freely available for download from Google Play Store, iOS App Store, and Windows Store.
