Microsoft Authenticator app updates on iOS with new security alert feature

The official Microsoft Authenticator app has updated on iOS devices to Version 5.9.0. This new update adds a rather interesting security feature that will now notify users of suspicious logins to their Microsoft account via an iOS device notification.

This addition makes Microsoft Authenticator more than a simply login tool and a more of an overall Microsoft account security app. You can read the full, though short, release notes below.
