Microsoft takes on the realm of password management, but the way it does that catches their eye: the feature is set as a public preview of Microsoft Authenticator. The app is now ready to generate, store and autofill passwords for those connecting their non-enterprise Microsoft account.

Go to Settings, scroll to the Beta subhead, and turn on the Autofill feature. From the main screen, a new password tab will appear. You will need to sign in again to sync any passwords associated with your account. Lastly, you need to open your system settings, go to Applications, and change the default autofill app to Microsoft Authenticator.

Enterprise administrators need to lead their team in adding their work or school account to Microsoft’s multi-factor authentication system. You can find more information in the help page here.

We would have screenshots for Android, but we weren’t able to feature the beta feature, so these iOS screenshots from the blog post have to do it. It still works on Android, though.

Obviously, the convenience feature is in getting one-time codes and static passwords all in one place, but by incorporating advanced authentication factors, it also makes the app more extremely valuable deposits for carriers to crack into.
