Most people now use the Microsoft Authenticator app to securely login into Microsoft 365. So it makes sense you secure your internet web passwords within the same application.
What is a password manager?
A password manager can store all your passwords securely, so you don’t have to worry about remembering them. This allows you to use unique, strong passwords for all your important accounts (rather than using the same password for all of them, which you should never do). Examples of password managers are LastPass, Dashlane and Google password manager.
It makes sense to use the Microsoft Authenticator app as a password manager.
It makes sense to use the Microsoft Authenticator app as a password manager. The Microsoft Authenticator app is already secure and supported by your IT dept & Microsoft. The app can be used alongside your favourite browsers, natively with Microsoft Edge, and as a browser extension with Chrome and Firefox. When using a mobile device, the Microsoft Authenticator app can replace the default one, so whether you are using a computer or mobile device, you only need to use one password manager. You can also import all the passwords you used with any other previous password managers. Most importantly, using one password manager reduces the risk of password data leaks.
