The Microsoft Authenticator app for iOS recently acquired the ability to change your Microsoft account settings. The update allows you to change your Microsoft account password, update your security information, and view your recent activity right in the Microsoft Authenticator app. These options make it easier to manage your account because you no longer need to jump to a browser to change your security settings.
The same options became available to beta testers through TestFlight last week and are now available to everyone. When you tap your accounts in the app, they expand to a full screen view, which lists more options for your account. This area contains the new security options, as well as other information such as your one-time access code. Here is the full changelog that brings the application to version 6.4.1:
You can now view your account activity, update your security information, and change your password right in the app for all personal Microsoft accounts. All of your accounts can now be extended to full screen view for more convenient account management.
When the new security options came through TestFlight, they were only available for personal Microsoft accounts. Microsoft said at the time that it would bring support for Azure AD in the future, although it did not provide any specific timelines.
