WebAuthenticationBroker for WindowsPhone

Nov 19, 2013 at 1:15 PM
I would like to avoid PinAuthorizer on windowsphone to use a WebAuthenticationBroker or a form similar to it.

Is there a class or a way to authenticate like that?

Please vote on this UserVoice issue:


Once that is available, it will be easy for me to do this with Windows Phone too.

I accidentally posted this in the consumer suggestions section. It seems someone has already added the same suggestion for the developers user voice. Please vote on this:

Hi Joe

Is there any way to use WinRTAuthorizer yet for Windows Phone Universal Apps? I've voted 3!!

If it's not likely to happen soon, what's the next best thing for Universal Apps.

Hi Jason,

I added a note to myself to investigate the WinRTAuthorizer implementation in WP 8.1 as part of another existing issue. I need to check to see if it's possible now that Windows Store and Windows Phone 8.1 APIs are unifying under WinRT.
