Guys just a heads up to something I noticed this week......

I use the Microsoft Authenticator Application to handle my 2FA needs on the iOS platform. Prior to this week notifications on my AW3 were just notifications that I needed to respond to on the iPhone.

However this week it looks like an app update has brought uplifted the AW processing so you can accept or deny the request from your watch. Major improvement for me as I use the 2FA system with my Microsoft accounts multiple times a day!

I've been using MS Authenticator for 2FA for a couple of months now and it's always displayed on Apple Watch and let me hit Approve on the watch. Maybe something changed on your company's 2FA config.
