Support Phone Sign-in on Microsoft Authenticator app of Windows 10 Mobile ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Are there any plan to support Phone Sign-in on Microsoft Authenticator app of Windows 10 Mobile ?
    I want to use Phone Sign-in by Windows 10 Mobile.

    I use Windows 10 Mobile for main purpose, and Android for backup/test/research purposes.
    and I can enable Microsoft Authenticator app of Android to Phone Sign-in.

  • Alex Simons just updated the blog with the following details:

    [Update 4/18/17 3:08pm Pacific: A few people have asked if this works with Windows Phone version Microsoft Authenticator. Windows Phone makes up <5% of the active users of our Authenticator Apps so we have prioritized getting this working with iOS and Android for now. If/When it becomes a big success on those high scale platforms, we will evaluate adding support for Windows Phone.]
