Just got an email from Microsoft about Office 365 and the opening was

Microsoft is simplifying how your users can sign in to mobile apps by allowing users to use a QR code to log in (instead of typing in their username and password). This experience will first be offered within Outlook on the web as a public preview

I'm about 12 months behind on Security Now but good to see some QR Code adoption happening by the big boys.

It would be interesting to see an example of that to see what they are doing (probably not SQRL), in any case SQRL now downplays as much as possible the QR login feature (remote authentication) as we recognise there are security issues with that use case which the localhost link (same device authentication) method overcomes.
