Microsoft Merges Its Authenticator Apps Into One, Adds One-Button Approval

Android/iOS: Microsoft has had separate two-factor authenticator apps for its consumer and enterprise users for a while. Now, it's combining the two into the new Microsoft Authenticator and adding a few new features while they're at it.

The new combined app will feature one-button approval, one of the more convenient and safe ways to secure your account. If your device has a fingerprint sensor, you can also use that to approve an authentication request. The app is rolling out for consumers as an update to the Azure Authenticator packages below.

    Will the Google authenticator iOS app still work for Microsoft accounts? I'd rather have one authenticator app instead of having to have two.

    Come to think of it, weird that Google and Microsoft ever played nice in the first place - must have been the engineers slipping it past the corporate warriors!
