What is MFA?
Multi-factor authentication (also known as two-step verification) means that, during login, you must use at least one additional authentication method, in addition to your password. This is done by approving your login through the Microsoft Authenticator mobile app.
What happens if I don't activate MFA?
If you don't activate MFA, meaning you won't be able to two-factor authenticate your login, you won't be able to use certain digital services, such as your email or Microsoft Word.
