    Overview

    Microsoft Authenticator is a multifactor app for mobile devices that gives employees easy, secure access to online accounts, providing multi-factor authentication for an extra layer of security.

    Passwords can be forgotten, stolen, or compromised. With Authenticator, your phone provides an extra layer of security on top of your PIN or fingerprint.

    Protect all of your accounts with two-step verification. The app also helps you secure all of your online accounts by using the industry standard time-based OTP (one-time password) codes.

    The PINsafe from Swivel Secure takes a user’s fixed personal identification number and randomly generates a one-time login code that is sent to the user to enter as part of a second factor for authentication.
