Set Per-User Multi-Factor Authentication

Introduction

MFA helps protect you by adding an additional layer of security, making it harder for bad actors to log in as if they were you.

We recommend per-user MFA be set to enforced for all user accounts.

User Impact

High
By setting per-user MFA to enforced the user will be prompted to configure their MFA during their next time they connect to any services via modern authentication. All applications which authenticate using basic authentication protocols will be unable to connect until they have created and applied App Passwords.

Note: Guest users are not enforced for MFA using this setting.
