    I have used MS Authenticator to generate codes to login to FB and it worked just fine. Yet I have to re-install the app and now FB just rejects it when I try to add "third party app". It keeps saying Try again when I enter generated code after scanning QR on FB... :(

    To confirm the third party app is set up correctly, enter the security code that appears on your phone.
    Security code: ******* x Try Again

    I had the same problem and this is what I did. Although I'm not sure this is how to set the Authenticator app up with Facebook. But I believe it is correct. I have it seamlessly working now on my 620 running 8.1 Developer Preview with Black software.
    Go to Facebook Settings on your Desktop> Security; and check whether the Code Generator option is turned on. Turn the code generator on before you set up the Authenticator app.

    Let me know if it works for you too, good luck!

    It worked. I had to add it manually, not using the QR code :) Thanks for advice :)
