And since Microsoft still strives to handle potential passwords. The Authenticator app is gradually upgrading with the upcoming innovative features. In today’s update, the beta build is creating a feature for Android devices.

However, it is important to note that this feature is available publically, it is still in a testing phase. It is only available as part of the new beta. In order to release this feature for all, Microsoft is trying to gather more positive feedbacks.

The company states in the description of its Android client: “along with your Microsoft accounts, you can add several accounts on the Authenticator app including, Google, Amazon, Dropbox, Facebook, Github, LinkedIn and more. All of your accounts can be protected on the app as the Authenticator app follows the industry norm for time-based one-time passwords (TOTP). This can be done by permitting (2FA) Two-factor Authentication on all of your accounts. After which, whenever your sign in you will add your username and password like you do normally. Then finally, enter the one-time password (OTP) given by the Microsoft Authenticator app.”
