Mobile apps are a popular method for receiving a multi-factor authentication request. To provide your users with a better app experience, we have recently released a new version of the Azure Authenticator.
This new app is published by Microsoft and replaces the Multi-Factor Authentication app published by PhoneFactor. Azure Authenticator can be the single application you need for all your multi-factor authentication needs. It not only works for accounts protected by Azure Multi-Factor Authentication but also works with Microsoft account, Google and any other provider that supports OATH one-time passcodes.
If you’re an existing PhoneFactor Multi-Factor Authentication app user, you can easily move to the new apps by following the steps here.
As always, we welcome your feedback and questions. Please let us know what you think by leaving a comment on this post.
We hope this upgrade is useful for you and your users!
