Microsoft authentication app

Vishnu Anand 65 Reputation points

Currently, we're using this method where users log in to Teams or Outlook on their device by entering a code displayed in the device login window into the Authenticator app. Is there an alternative method where users can simply generate a code from their Authenticator app whenever MFA is required, use it, and proceed, or are these steps default for the Authenticator app setup?
