  1. Microsoft Authenticator Problem


    I had my account from work, in the authenticator app, I accidentally deleted the account from the app and now it doesn't allow me to add it manually or enter my work account because it keeps sending me to the authenticator app if there is a way to add my work account back to the authenticator app I would greatly appreciate it.

    :)

    Microsoft Authenticator

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand that you want to how the Microsoft Authenticator App works.

    The Microsoft Authenticator app helps you sign-in to your accounts if you use two-factor verification. Two-factor verification helps you to access your accounts more securely, especially while viewing
    sensitive information. Because passwords can be forgotten, stolen, or compromised, two-factor verification is an additional security step that helps protect your account by making it harder for other people to break in.

    You can use the Microsoft Authenticator app in multiple ways, including:

    • Respond to a prompt for authentication after you sign in with your username and password.
    • Sign-in without entering a password, using your username, the authenticator app, and your mobile device with your fingerprint, face, or PIN.
    • As a code generator for any other accounts that support authenticator apps.

    I suggest you refer to the article for more information on
    What is the Microsoft Authenticator app?and you may also
    refer to the article about Microsoft Authenticator app FAQ

    However, let me point you in the right direction where you can get the appropriate assistance regarding this issue. I suggest you to post your query in
    Microsoft Authenticator App forums
    where we have expertise and support professionals.

    Hope it helps.

    Regards,

    Zaki

    New Microsoft Authenticator app version for Android and iOS - Sept. 3

    Two factor authentication (TFA) is easy, convenient, and secure when you use Microsoft Authenticator. Use your phone, not your password, to log into your Microsoft account. Just enter your username, then approve the notification sent to your phone. Your fingerprint, face ID, or PIN will provide a second layer of security in this two step verification process. After youve signed in with two factor authentication (TFA), youll have access to all your Microsoft products and services, such as Outlook, OneDrive, Office, and more.
