Security – The Authenticator Application now provides a full screen experience and allow to manage the ‘display code’ for all account at once

By now you should already know the Microsoft Authenticator application used for multi-factor authentication (MFA) when accessing Microsoft services (Microsoft Accounts, Office 365, Azure….) but also other services like Facebook, Google or LinkedIn.

Well, the Authenticator application has been updated to provide 2 new nice features:

  • Display/Hide codes for accounts using code only for MFA
  • Account details (and management) in full screen

Display/Hide all code at once

When you have accounts using code only (like Facebook, LinkedIn or Google), you can now ask the application to display or hide all code at once.

Open the Menu available top right of the application and choose Show codes to display all code or Hide codes if they are already displayed to hide them all at once
