Microsoft has added new security features for Microsoft Authenticator users that further secure the app and make it easier to roll out in enterprise environments.
Microsoft Authenticator is an authentication tool that helps users log into their accounts using 2FA, passwordless sign-in, or password autofill.
Admins can now setup GPS-location based Conditional Access policies using Microsoft Authenticator.
Admins can now nudge their users to setup Microsoft Authenticator during sign-in using the Registration Campaign feature.
By enabling number matching in Microsoft Authenticator push notifications and additional context in requests, admins will improve user sign-in security across the organizations.
It first allowed enterprise customers to rollout passwordless authentication in their environments in March following a breakthrough year in 2020 when Microsoft reported that more than 150 million users were signing into their Azure Active Directory and Microsoft accounts via passwordless login.
