Good Morning,

I posted this feature when it was in preview some months ago, and Today I am pleased to announce that we are live with Multi-Factor Authentication for Office 365 and Multi-Factor Authentication for Azure Administrators along with GA of Federated App Password.

I do want to point out that this is INCLUDED with Office 365 Plans for ALL USERS!

Today we’re adding Multi-Factor Authentication for Office 365 to Office 365 Midsize Business, Enterprise plans, Academic plans, Nonprofit plans, and standalone Office 365 plans, including Exchange Online and SharePoint Online. This will allow organizations with these subscriptions to enable multi-factor authentication for their Office 365 users without requiring any additional purchase or subscription.

Multi-factor authentication increases the security of user logins for cloud services above and beyond just a password. With Multi-Factor Authentication for Office 365, users are required to acknowledge a phone call, text message, or an app notification on their smartphone after correctly entering their password. Only after this second authentication factor has been satisfied can a user sign in.



Overview of MFA for Office 365, Azure Administrators

• Admin can enable MFA for users in their organization.
• User can complete enrollment and create app passwords.
• User can sign into browser apps using mobile app, call or sms.
• User can sign into non-browser apps using App Password
