Authenticator app on phone via smartwatch RRS feed

  • Question

  • At our company we use multi-factor-authentication.

    If i receive the login message on my phone then i receive this also on my smartwatch.

    If i answer: yes on my smartphone for login, then the answer is not working via the phone, because of the lockscreen on my phone?

    Then first i have to " unlock"  my screen (with only ticking on the phone screen, so it's not realy locked?)

    After that my phone is awake, then the authentication is ready and login in to my Azure-VM.

    I don't have this kind of problem with other apps then the authenticator app. 
    Normal behaviour is that answering on my smartwatch is directly passthru my phone, without first activating my phone screen.


    Phone: Samsung A8

    Watch: Asus Zenwatch 2

    Do you know about this problem?

    Best regards, thanks in advance,
