Microsoft Authenticator 4.1 beta now available for iOS, adds push notifications

Microsoft today released a new beta build of its Authenticator app for iOS, which brings the version number to 4.1.0. The app originally launched on August 15, but it was lacking some features, such as support for personal Microsoft accounts (MSAs). Luckily, the company offered a beta program to anyone who was interested.

The last beta that we reported on was version 4.0.4, which added the personal MSA support. There have been a few new builds since then, but they all came with a warning that if you use the app for a personal Microsoft account, you should not install it.

The big new feature in today's update is push notifications for personal MSAs. Now, when you sign into your account, you won't have to actually open the app to approve it.

To install the update, you'll need to do it from the TestFlight app, as long as you're part of the beta program. If you want to apply for the beta, send an email over to, and include your name and Apple ID.
