To explain my questions a little bit:
- Sometimes Outlook needs a new Token a login-window appears - but I cannot see if this is from Outlook or from a source that I should not approve.
- Lately I had to connect to a rdp via a tdp gateway and the Authentictor App beeped. I feel uncomfortable about the experience: How can I know that this my request and not a hacker that knows my password?
So my questions:
- Exists a setting in windows / setting in AAD/ tool /browser plugin / ... to show more information about the login request (for a Windows Application)?
- Is there a setting in the Microsoft Authenticator app to show more information about the request?
AppRegistration, Source IP?
Or is this feature request?

I agree that when the MFA challenge appears, you can indeed not see which application asks for approval. Because the application only can be checked within the sign-in logs. It also states which application (Teams, Outlook, SharePoint, etc.) See attached screenshot for an example. It also says that if the MFA was completed or rejected, you need to click on authentication details.
It would be a great feature to see which location and application you're trying to sign in to. I will deliver this feedback to Microsoft.
