However, by eliminating passwords entirely, Microsoft is actually making the barrier to logins even shorter, for better or worse. The feature is now generally available, after a soft launch occurred last month. This is essentially two-factor authentication made a bit easier and more convenient.
Alex Simons, director of program management at Microsoft's Identity Division argues the new feature is superior to standard two-step verification and much better than relying on exclusively on passwords, which can be forgotten, phished, or compromised.
The new app is the flawless companion for listing anything users need to do at work, home and everything in between. From then on they can use Authenticator's simpler choice to "approve" or "deny" a login from a notification that is displayed on the phone after entering a username at a Microsoft login page in a browser. Don't worry if you lose your phone (or it is dead) because below account sign -ins, you can also click "Use Password instead".
Just hit "Approve" to sign in to a Microsoft account from your phone. Now, you should be good to go. Now, users, instead of entering passwords, can take the easy two-step verification using Microsoft's Authenticator account app, in order to access their accounts.
Microsoft is planning to bring more features from Wunderlist to To-Do, including the ability to share lists; a Mac app and tablet apps for iOS and Android are also planned. However, your preferences can always be changed. It's part of the Microsoft Authenticator app, and it just might work. "Either way, we'll remember your preferences next time you sign in".
Experts, like Tadd Axon, Microsoft Services Practice Lead at the IT consulting firm Softchoice, still believe that passwords aren't going anywhere but think that tools like Microsoft's Authenticator can help limit their usage. The Preview version of To-Do is available today for I.T. admins to enable through the Office 365 admin center, and is available on iPhone, Android, Windows and the web for consumers.
