MFA and the new Microsoft Authenticator App that supports #AzureAD


I’ve already told you about the new Microsoft Authenticator App that supports #AzureAD in a previous blog post here: https://spanougakis.wordpress.com/2016/07/29/new-microsoft-authenticator-app-is-coming-august-15th-supporting-azuread-of-course/

Today I want to show you how smoothly it works: I’ve enabled MFA for my personal user account in #AzureAD and Office365, and this is what I get every time that I logon to Office365:

Take a look at the notification option: “We’ve sent a notification to your mobile device. Please respond to continue.” Practically, we don’t have to type codes and numbers any more. Just grab your phone (even an Android phone, not just Windows Phones) and click “Approve” to continue and log on. Brilliant!
