Windows 10 mobile app developers are getting ready for a new version of their desktop client.
Microsoft announced today that the Windows 10 Remote Desktop app for Android, iOS, and ChromeOS devices will support Authenticator on mobile.
This comes on the heels of a Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview for iOS and Android, which launched today.
In the app, users can set up a new account, log in with a Microsoft account, and then sign in to their devices using Authenticator.
There’s no desktop login required.
Microsoft says this new authentication scheme will help improve security, reliability, and efficiency, as well as make it easier to share files.
For Windows 10, Microsoft has been working with a handful of app developers on new ways to make their mobile apps more secure and easier to use.
It also announced today a new Windows 10 app for Xbox One that lets users sign in with their Xbox Live ID and log in remotely.
In addition, Microsoft announced the Windows Store for Windows 10 for Android and iOS, a new section of the Windows store that includes all the apps in the Windows Insider Program.
