Onboarding with an iPhone

This guide offers instructions to onboard onto Defence 365 (D365) using your personal Apple iOS mobile device. Once the following steps are complete, you will be able to login to your D365 account on any personal device, including laptops and mobile devices using the Microsoft Authenticator app to authenticate your identity.

When you have successfully onboarded using the following guide, it is important to add a second authentication method, in addition to the Microsoft Authenticator app. A second method ensures you can still authenticate your identity and access your D365 account if you are unable to use the Authenticator app.

Note: You must use the Microsoft Teams app when using this guide, browser sign-in on mobile devices does not work for onboarding.

If you run into problems using this guide, read how to onboard without a smartphone guide.
