Hello! If you have been working on the app, can you port it to Windows Phones?

This is why I have the actual key fob. Course, before now I never had a smart phone. Mine was dumb.

From what I hear, you can use third party authenticator apps now, like authy and winauth, as they now support the standard protocols.

I also noticed for those who are on Android 5.0+ that you can use the Google Authenticator to generate a SWTOR Security Key. This also should theoretically work on Windows Phone with the Microsoft Authenticator.

Windows Phone user here can confirm that the Microsoft Authenticator works (don't tell Google, I use it for them too!).

See this is what I dont get...
WP users (including myself) are crying for WP security key app. I have old Android phone lying around just for that purpose, since I don't want to mess with the Bluestacks and other stuff that I will not use for emulating 1 Android app. And yesterday I stumbled upon Reddit post where some random dude say that scheme is changed and that Microsoft Authenticator (the same that you use for Outlook.com) now also works with SWTOR. So I have removed my old Android app key from account, and tried with the new Windows Authenticator on my WP and voila - it worked!

And yet there havent been single post about it on the forums from the devs/community managers about it. Heck, even the app is updated and they didn't inform us about it (simply send mail to the people with the mobile app attached to the account).

Basically, for WP users (Lumia 1520 WP 8.1 Denim here) go to https://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/s...a-ca22d653759b and install if if you don't have it already.
Login to SWTOR web and remove current Security key app (for me it was Android one on the other phone, which was super frustrating since I don't carry it with me all the time).
Add account to Authentificator app, name it SWTOR under Account, and in bottom text box "Secret key" re-type set of characters that you have on website. Click Save button and it will start generating 6 number sequences ever X seconds (lets say 20 or so, but still enough time). Re-type generated numbers from App to SWTOR web to finalize the process.
