(Cloud) Tip of the Day: New MS Authenticator


Today’s Tip…

Azure Authenticator is being replace by the new Microsoft Authenticator.

The new features include…

  • Support for wearables. You can use an Apple Watch or Samsung Gear device to approve MFA challenges.
  • Finger prints instead of passcodes. We’ve added support finger print based approvals on both iPhone and Android.
  • Certificate based authentication. Support for enterprise customers to sign in through certificates instead of passwords.
