Ubuntu Touch alternative for MS Authenticator app



  • Is there an alternative available for the Microsoft Authenticator app in Ubuntu Touch Stable?
    The Authenticator NG app from the Openstore does not recognize the QR code that is supposed to be used to register the MS Authenticator. If trying to manually set up the account, I have to enter a nine digit activation and a phonefactor URL. I can only control the client side of the connection, my guess is that the server side uses Azure AD.



  • Unfortunately, the PhoneFactor enrollment and such seem to be proprietary, and I am unable to find any API documentation for it, therefore it's not possible to implement an alternative client to MS Authenticator for this use case currently.

    However, as soon as it becomes possible to implement alternative apps for this, we can get it added to Authenticator NG.
