    Authenticator App Verification

    Use your smartphone and download Microsoft Authenticator by either following the "Download Now" link or downloading the app from the App Store or Google Play. Once the app is downloaded and installed, open it on your device and click "Next" on your computer.

    Accept any permission request the app asks for during the setup.
    When you see the picture below, click on "Add work or school account".

    In the app, select "Add account"


    On the computer, it is suggested "Set up your account". Here you click "Next".


    Your computer now displays a QR code that you scan with your mobile phone.

    If you can now see your account in the App, it is connected.

    You will now be prompted to test the setup on your computer:


    Select "Approve" on your mobile phone.


    Once approved in the app, the following will appear on your computer. Click "Next".


    You will now see your device listed on the computer.

    The app must not be deleted after completion of the guide, as this is the one that is used continuously for 2-factor validation.
