Microsoft has updated its Authenticator app for iOS, adding in push notifications for personal Microsoft Accounts.
Here's what's included in the new 4.1.0 version of the iOS app:
We're pleased to announce a much-awaited feature – push notifications for your personal Microsoft account! You no longer need to open the app and copy codes, just approve your sign-in from the notification. With this change, we've also made it much easier to add your personal Microsoft account within the app itself, no need to track down that QR code!
If you already have a personal Microsoft account set up in the app, you will have to add it again to take advantage of the new feature. Copy your 6-digit security code prior to starting the "add account" flow, as you will need it to complete setup.
The Windows 10 Mobile version of Microsoft Authenticator, which is still in beta, already has push notification support.
