Add 3rd party Authenticator support to Office 365 2-factor auth
Please add support for 3rd party 2-factor authenticator apps like LastPass Authenticator or Google Authenticator by adding support for RFC 6238 "TOTP: Time-Based One-Time Password Algorithm".
I don't want to fill my phone with vendor-specific authenticator apps.
I can confirm the "Configure app without notifications" link is present at the time of this post.
The below method doesnt seem to work anymore - I cannot see the 'configure app without notifications' link on my screen, it seems to have been removed. Please fix!!
This can be closed, as it is currently supported
I can confirm that this is currently supported, as anonymous mentioned below. It just isn't obvious how to enable it.
1) After enabling MFA in AzureAD, log into the account
2) Select 'Use verification code from app' as the preferred MFA option
3) In the popup screen 'Configure mobile app' next to the QR code, click the link 'Configure app without notifications'
4) You will now have a different QR code which can be added in other authenticators, eg. Lastpass/Google

Thanks to Anonymous below who clued me onto this.
It's not obvious but it does work - there is a link when setting up the code to switch to "configure an app without notifications" - that changes it to use the standard RFC generation

Please implement RFC 6238, I need to use two factor authentication for lots of applications and I don't want to fill my phone with different apps for each. Every other service provider has got this right, why has office365 got it wrong?

Yes. This is a BASIC DECENT THING TO DO! Please listen to YOUR CUSTOMERS!
Yes please - Lastpass authenticator support

+1 Please add the ability to use Google Authenticator. It's the responsible thing to do :)

I badly need this. Google Authenticator and the RFC behind it are a widely supported multi-platform standard, and the proprietary Microsoft Application is not.
