Re: authenticator app does not "receive" codes

Pick nits much?

I'll tell you that during the outage, i was unable to use the generated code from my handset.

Nor was I able to receive the MS Authenticator app requests to approve sign in from my handset either.

The app does indeed receive requests for approval from the users' handsets and will use that instead of a user keying in a numeric key.

as far as any user would be concernet, it's a request/response mechanism. becaues, you know, it does receive requests.

Since, as you admitted, you don't know how the app works why don't you make like Bambi's Flower, or at least speak not of which you know not.
