Outlook 2019 supports Outlook.com 2FA


Finally, the day has come, folks. I still can’t believe it. After so many friggin’ years this damn application finally supports two-factor authentication for their own service. Without stupid “app passwords”. Can you actually believe that? If the account’s already set up in Windows, it’s like 3 clicks, you don’t even have to enter your email address, just click Ok or Accept or whatever:

It won’t tell you, but you’ll have to restart Outlook for the new mailbox to appear. But after that, it’s all working fine.


Note: Office 2019, and thus Outlook 2019 are still in preview. If you want to get it, please refer to: How to participate in the Office 2019 Commercial Preview program
