Microsoft has introduced its official autofill password solution, and it is now available for Android, iOS, Mac, and Windows platforms.
The solution was available already in the beta version, but now Android and iOS users can have complete access to autofill from the Microsoft Authenticator app, while those on Windows and Mac will be able to use it as Microsoft Edge and Chrome extensions.
“Autofill stores your passwords under your Microsoft account. To get started with autofill on mobile, open the Microsoft Authenticator app, and then sign-in on the Passwords tab with your Microsoft account. If you have passwords saved under your Microsoft account on Microsoft Edge, they will sync to the Authenticator app.”
Similar to iCloud Keychain of Apple, all the passwords you have across various services and websites will now be saved through the autofill app linked to your Microsoft account. The app also allows users to import their passwords from CSV files into the Microsoft’s autofill solution.
What’s interesting here is that users across a variety of supported platforms will be able to protect their passwords trough Face ID, Touch ID, and even a simple pin code.
According to Microsoft, they are already currently working on “bringing all your autofill information from Microsoft Edge to your mobile devices via the Authenticator app, including payment info, addresses and more. However, that’s just the first step.”
You can download the Microsoft Authenticator app for iPhone/iPad from the App Store for free. Android users can also get their free app from Google Play.
