Why Am I Seeing Token Factory?

Token Factory is usually a bug on Microsoft’s end in the Safari app. Microsoft has reported in the past that it has taken various steps to fix the problem, and most users should no longer see the download prompt.

Can I Remove Token Factory?

Although Token Factory is a problem that needs fixing on Microsoft’s end, you can limit its impact. For example, you can disable downloads for Outlook in Safari and try deleting and reinstalling the app.

Let’s now look at how to do both of these.

1. Disable Outlook Downloads in Safari

Revoking Outlook’s download permissions will normally stop the Token Factory download prompt from appearing. It’s only a temporary solution if you need this feature, but it’ll at least stop your immediate problems.

Here’s how to disable Outlook downloads in Safari:

Time needed: 2 minutes

  1. Open Safari and go to Settings in the top-hand toolbar.

  2. Select Websites.

  3. Tap Downloads when you see the toolbar on the left.

  4. Look for microsoft.com, Outlook, and anything related to these. Expand the dropdown menu and select Deny.

  5. Close and reopen Safari. You should no longer see Token Factory download prompts.

It’s up to Microsoft to ensure that you no longer see Token Factory when using Outlook in your browser, and the best you can do in most situations is wait for the problem to be fixed. However, as a temporary solution, it’s worth trying to disable downloads in Safari. Third-party software can also help.
