Now sign into Microsoft account without password

Microsoft Authenticator App Now Supports Phone Sign-in for Microsoft Accounts

It was previously leaked a while back, when Microsoft was found to be developing a new app, then codenamed Project Cheshire. On April 19, Microsoft is making Microsoft To Do available for public testing. As the name suggests, the app is a to-do app, although it has been created to be more intuitive and intelligent, and has been put-together by the team behind Wunderlist, following its acquisition by Microsoft.

Here are the links to Microsoft To-Do Preview for iPhone, Android, Windows and the web. IT pros can enable the To-Do preview via the Office 365 admin center. He noted that Microsoft To-Do doesn't now appear to integrate with Office 365 services, including password access. Microsoft is planning to integrate the To-Do app with all Office 365 services, starting with Outlook Tasks. One of them will allow users to automatically sync their Outlook Tasks with To-Do.

To-Do users may use the import tool to bring Wunderlist or Todoist lists and to-dos to Microsoft To-Do. Once that happens, however, Wunderlist will finally be put to pasture.

Microsoft adds that To-Do is "the only task management app built on an enterprise cloud", and says that a Mac app is in the pipeline. "In the meantime, there will not be any features brought to Wunderlist, but we will continue to ensure the security of the Wunderlist experience". Currently To-Do can't do everything that Wunderlist can, such as adding attachments to a task or creating subtasks, but those things may be added in the future.

The company plans to retire Wunderlist eventually once it has "incorporated the best of Wunderlist into To-Do".


Microsoft has made it possible to use only your smartphone to log in to your Microsoft account, ditching the need for what is traditionally the first line of defense against unwanted account access: the humble password.

The official reason is a bit "softer".

According to Microsoft, "It combines intelligent technology and attractive design to empower you to create a simple daily workflow".

To-Do "delivers a smarter, more personal and intuitive way to help people stay organized and get the most out of every day".
