More Microsoft Authenticator Pros →

"It's pretty stable as a product.""This is a user-friendly solution."

More PingID Pros →

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.""The pricing is okay, however, it could always be better in the future.""Lacks integration between applications and phones.""It would be an improvement if Authenticator made it easier to recover the app if you reboot your cellphone and lose access."

More Microsoft Authenticator Cons →

"I think that the connection with like Microsoft Word, especially for Office 365, is a weak point that could be improved.""The timing of the token validity, if it could be extended, would be great. I'm not sure if there is even an option to configure these types of settings."
