Microsoft authenticator 6 digit code

Is there any way to get the authenticator app to produce 6 digit codes? The financial app that I have it connected to doesn’t accept 8 digit codes and I have to put in my authenticator code to change my 2fa preferences. Has anyone found a solution to this?

Hello @chrismitchell-5168!

Hope you are having a great day!

Thank you for asking a Question! We are Glad to Assist you!.

I believe you are seeing the 8-digit code on your Authenticator App because the Passwordless signing is enabled for your Microsoft account (personal Microsoft account).
You can identify the same by looking for a key symbol listed on the top of your account in the Authenticator App profile.

I would suggest you to take a look at the steps mentioned here and see if this helps:




Let me know if the above solution resolved your issue!

Tasadduq Burney

I have turned off passwordless sign in off and I am still getting the 8 digit codes.
