Microsoft will soon accelerate the adoption of multi-factor authentication (MFA) by including MFA capabilities in the Outlook email client for its Microsoft 365 cloud productivity platform. According to a new Microsoft 365 roadmap entry, users will be able to fulfill MFA requests for their 365 apps directly in the Outlook app with the help of a new feature called Authenticator Lite, reports BleepingComputer.
Users can use Authenticator Lite to add an extra layer of security to their Outlook logins for work or school. “Authenticator Lite (in Outlook) is a feature that allows your users to complete multi-factor authentication (MFA) for their work or school account using the Outlook app on their iOS or Android device,” Microsoft he said.
In addition, Microsoft 365 MFA requests can currently be completed using an authentication app (Microsoft’s Authenticator app or third-party authenticator apps), security key, verification code received via phone call or text messaging.
Once the new Authenticator Lite capabilities become available to Outlook users around the world, they will be able to perform authentication requests in it, the report noted.
Meanwhile, Microsoft is reportedly developing a new Gallery view for Windows 11 File Explorer that will let users browse photos by date and via the built-in search box.
This new gallery option can be accessed from the right sidebar of File Explorer, allowing users to view all their photos in one place.
