Microsoft Authenticator updated with option to sign in with your phone
So, if you're using Microsoft Authenticator on your iOS device, then you'll be pleased to know that you can now sign in with your phone instead of typing your password. The same option is available on Android devices since last week.
Keep in mind that in order to take advantage of the new feature is not enough to update to the newest version of Microsoft Authenticator. You will also need to add your new personal account, or if the account is already in the app, then choose the option to “Enable phone sign-in” from the account drop-down menu.
As soon as you enroll your account through the application, you will be able to sign in to your account with only your phone. Make sure to approve the notification sent to the Microsoft Authenticator after filling in your username, as well as passcode or TouchID.
