Going Passwordless just got easier with Sign-In Approvals coming to Outlook for Android this month.

More details
You’ll need Microsoft Outlook for Android version 4.2310.1 or newer.
From January 2024, whenever you sign in to your Microsoft personal account, we will start to offer sign-in approval notifications in the Outlook mobile Android app.

Once installed, whenever you sign in to your Microsoft personal account, you will see sign-in requests appear either on the lock screen or in the Outlook mobile Android app. You'll also be able to get one-time passcodes which you can copy/paste into other sign-in screens.

Note: This feature is rolling out gradually over the coming months.

So more convenient, less secure. I hope that it will be possible to turn it off or lock, I do not want Sign-In Approvals in an insecure app, otherwise I am uninstalling it ASAP.
