Multi-factor authentication means you and your employees must provide more than one way to sign in to Office 365. Usually a text or call to your phone. This is one of the easiest ways to increase security for your business.

To get started, go to the admin center at https://admin.microsoft.com .

  1. Select Users, Active users.

  2. Choose More, and then, Multifactor Authentication setup.

  3. Select one or more users, then Enable.

  4. Select enable multi-factor auth.

Next time the selected employees sign in, they'll be asked to provide a second form of authentication.
