Try the new phone sign in for Microsoft accounts!

Now that's really nice. We all hate passwords but we should use them anyway. If you really care about security you should use complex passwords, containing special characters, numbers, symbols, etc.


What if you could use your phone to login, without having to use any complex passwords? Now this is possible using the Microsoft Authenticator app for Android or iOS. Just add your account to the Android or iOS Microsoft Authenticator app, then enter your username as usual when signing in somewhere new. Instead of entering your password, you'll get a notification on your phone. Unlock your phone, tap "Approve", and you're in.
