A multi-factor authenticator is an app or device which produces a temporary token (verification code/push notification) used to confirm your identity when logging into MCC systems. Go directly to app download information.
Microsoft Authenticator is a free multi-factor authentication app that MCC encourages you to use for MFA since it will give you ‘push’ notifications that you simply accept to confirm and proceed (message and data rates will apply according to your mobile device plan).
To get and install the free Microsoft Authenticator app onto your mobile device, go to the App Store (if you have an Apple device) or to Google Play (if you have an Android device) by clicking on the appropriate button below. If searching within the app store, be sure to select Microsoft Authenticator. Or you can scan the appropriate QR code below with your mobile device.
Be sure to allow both camera access and notifications when installing the app.
