Using Microsoft Authenticator

If you are not on the school network, you will be asked to validate/authenticate on the mobile phone to access Microsoft 365/mail.

If, on the other hand, you are on the school’s network, you will not have to validate yourself/authenticate on the mobile phone – you can use your password instead.

However, there may be different scenarios in relation to when you must validate/authorize on your mobile phone, depending on whether the Microsoft 365 program/app you want to access allows you to postpone the next validation by 14 days on the individual unit.

 

The example below shows how Outlook on the computer asks you to approve your logon request.

If you get the image below when you try to log into e.g., Outlook, you must take your mobile phone and do as follows (Before you pick up your phone, you may want to put a tick in “Don’t ask me again before 14 days”/”Don’t show this again” on the computer if you want to postpone the next validation by 14 days/ Don’t show this again):

  • Open Microsoft Authenticator on your mobile phone.
  • Approve in the app

  • You will now be logged into the app on your computer.

Add an account to Microsoft Authenticator

If you already have Microsoft Authenticator installed, you can add your DMJX account to Microsoft Authenticator. You can do this in the following way:

You must be on the phone now:

  1. Open and login into your Microsoft Authenticator

  3. Select “Work- or school account”.
  4. A few options will then open – choose none of them now but continue on the computer. At some point you will be asked to use the phone again, and here you can press “Scan QR code” on your phone.
