Microsoft Authenticator app has been upgraded with new features that include the ability to generate a unique master password as well as an Autofill option in the app settings.
For those new, Microsoft Autofill is a browser extension that organizes all of your passwords and stores them in the cloud through your Microsoft Account for usage on Edge, mobile phones, and Google Chrome. Microsoft Authenticator, a related app, may be used to manage those passwords, and it now has the capacity to help you stay secure online in the next generation.
To use this new password generator, make sure you have the most latest versions of the Microsoft Authenticator app for iOS or Android.
When you create a new account or change the password of an existing one, Authenticator should ask you to use the option. On iOS, you can also manually activate it by selecting password generator from the ellipses button at the upper right of the app. Meanwhile, on Android, hit the (+) icon in the Passwords section and select Generate Password. With the save icon, you can save any password and name or copy it.
