The company stated, "Windows Phone makes up 5% of the active users of our Authenticator Apps so we have prioritized getting this working with iOS and Android for now". Once they have added the account, whenever they sign in somewhere new, they will receive a notification on their phone. If a user does not have their mobile device nearby, a link at the bottom of the confirmation page will let them choose to use a password instead.
