Hello Everyone! 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. To get started with the Azure Authenticator app, install the application from the Windows Phone , iOS or Android app store. 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!
