Cons
"Microsoft Authenticator is as easy as Google Authenticator, but it is not open to all types of applications. Google Authenticator is integrated with other third-party platforms and applications, whereas Microsoft Authenticator is not. It should have more integration with third-party platforms and applications.""Adding a new account can be tricky.""It would be an improvement if Authenticator made it easier to recover the app if you reboot your cellphone and lose access.""The pricing is okay, however, it could always be better in the future.""Lacks integration between applications and phones."
