Microsoft Authenticator App

 

    Microsoft has released an authenticator app for Windows Phones, and third-party authenticator apps can be used for other platforms. Microsoft Authenticator can be enabled with your LastPass account, so that you enter your email address + master password, then a code generated by the multifactor app when logging in to your LastPass account.

    Microsoft authenticator app is supported on Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8 devices and is compatible with Google Authenticator.

    The Microsoft authenticator app can be downloaded from the Windows app store here: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/authenticator/e7994dbc-2336-4950-91ba-ca22d653759b or by searching in the store on your device.

    Then, in your LastPass Icon > My LastPass Vault > Settings > Multifactor Options tab, you can click the “Google Authenticator” option, click to display the barcode, then scan the barcode on your mobile device in your Microsoft authenticator app.
