Microsoft's authenticator is now all you need to log in


Microsoft wants to change that with a new app feature that basically removes passwords from the equation entirely.

One of the purposes of the app is to help users create to-do lists and reminders, and keep track of tasks with just a single service which comes with nearly the same feature package as Wunderlist.

It's looking like a busy week for the app devs at Microsoft.

An intelligent "Suggestion" feature uses a "smart algorithm" to recommend tasks you should be doing right now.

One of To-Do's more interesting options will come via the "Intelligent Suggestions".

In the future, Microsoft says, this integration "will enable the product to be even more useful in more places". Do you have a favorite to-do list? Outlook Tasks, for example, can be synced with To-Do. The new app is being built by the team behind Wunderlist. Now two years later, we finally have our answer as the Microsoft To-Do app is officially taking a bow, albeit in Preview mode.

Update: According to Mary Jo Foley and Microsoft any Microsoft Account can use this service and an Office 365 subscription is not required. While it's still the first preview build, To-Do has enough in it that's worth a look, especially if you're an Office user.

Ever since Microsoft's acquisition of Wunderlist back in 2015, the fate of the to-do app has been hanging in the balance.

Microsoft just introduced its replacement for its Wunderlist task management tool.

"Microsoft To-Do is a simple to-do list app that intelligently takes the stress out of planning your day". "Use your phone instead of your password for personal Microsoft accounts!" The new app is only available in a "preview" version although it is available on a number of platforms including Android, iOS, and Windows 10, as well accessible via the web. He noted that Microsoft To-Do doesn't now appear to integrate with Office 365 services, including password access. To-Do will most likely be a similar offspring, if not entirely a direct one.

Microsoft Authenticator can be downloaded for Android and iOS from their respective App Stores and is free of charge, it just requires a Microsoft account.
