  1. Azure AD MFA enhancements

    Like to suggests a couple of enhancements to Azure MFA (not MFA server).

    Ability to pre-provision users at scale (send QR code to selected users via email, import mobile numbers to protected 'authentication contact info' area in users profile via PowerShell, etc.)

    Provide method for users to change MFA device or bypass MFA if device isn't available (security / secret questions in lieu of MFA, alternate email - personal, etc. )

    Provide administrators a method to bypass MFA for a user (one time bypass, bypass MFA for 'x' amount of time, provide temp code that will work for 'x' amount…

  2. Enable per user MFA bypass for Azure MFA (Cloud) make this both temporary and permenant based on settings

    Currently per user bypass is not capable in Azure MFA (Cloud only) this can be done using the Azure MFA on premise server. This functionality make Azure MFA more usable for a end user community that often loses or forget cell phones and need temporary bypass. Also using Azure MFA with NPS/Radius there is no way to allow services accounts that do network equipment monitoring to avoid Azure MFA if we want to enable MFA to access critical network infrastructure or VPN using radius this would help this scenario too

  3. MFA only allow initial setup from inside corporate network.

    Please allow configuration of initial MFA setup for users so that they can only provision MFA from within our corporate network. Also the ability to pre-provision and lock-down their MFA settings (cell phones etc). We need to be able to make sure that not just anyone from outside can do the initial provisioning of a users MFA setup. In case a users password is compromised.

  4. New method for automating onboarding of users in MFA

    Current onboarding mechanism in O365/Azurd AD requires that the users onboard themselves. They can choose MFA-method and telephone number themselves.

    We strongly suggest a new method of automate onboarding for end users. We would like to map telephone number from the organization AD and choose one of the MFA methods as preferred. We also would like to have a option to turn on/off the possibility for end users to change their MFA-profile (MFA method and telephone number).

    The benefit for all customers will be that the CA/MFA solution will be more secure since no onboarding for users can be done…

  5. Adding non-listed 3rd Party MFA via Azure AD Custom Controls

    How do you get an MFA Server on the list, as at present it seems to be restricted to RSA, Duo and Trusona. Or when will you open up support for the general MFA providers, and/or provide the information that will allow another vendor to integrate in the same fashion.

    Reason:
    We have a very large customer we are working on with their whole of Staff UAM 2FA upgrade. They are looking at both on-premise and cloud options, but require the 2FA to be on-premise. Azure's approach with ADFS will be restrictive as compared to AWS and GCP's approach, especially…

  6. Add company preferred MFA option

    Company should have option to choose preferred option for MFA for users. For example, we allow Mobile Phone and App. But in onboarding, portal asks only for phone setup and not for app. Users complain about SMS codes, they do not find an App option in advance settings.

  7. Azure MFA synchronization between on premise and cloud

    Hi. We are currently AAD Premium subscribers (via EMS) If I'm reading all current documentation correctly deploying a MFA server on premise would be completely independent of any Cloud based MFA registrations for O365 and other SSO apps. This results in a userbase needing to register with 2 different MFA servers and causing some confusion. It would be nice if the on premise MFA server could synchronize or even proxy requests to the cloud based MFA server so only 1 registration would be needed.

    For example, user John Smith has 2FA turned on in the O365 cloud portal, and goes…

  8. Prevent Change Contact Phone Number by Users in Azure Multi-Factor Autentication.

    I want to allow change contact Phone Number by users ofAdministrator in Azure Multi-Factor Authentication.
    To prevent user to sign-in to system outside of the comany.

    If prevent change contact phone number by users,
    Admin set User's contact phone number to Admin's phone Number,
    and set Trusted IP of Azure Multi-Factor Autentication to the company office's public ip.
    and prevent change contact phone number by useres.

  9. One-time Bypass in Azure MFA Cloud Only

    We need an option to allow for one-time bypass to allow users to reset their MFA if they dont have access to their Authenticator App (phone damaged or lost,stolen). Phone number as backup is not an option

  10. MFA cloud-only solution should support an additional PIN option.

    In order to compete with equivalent solutions available today, it would be great to have the ability to enforce a PIN as a prefix or suffix to a verification code, or even as per the current on-premise MFA offering. This allows systems an additional "what you know" option, where primary authentication is weak or only deals with identification and not authentication.

  12. Enable Flash SMS for MFA/Multi Factor Authentication

    I'd like the possibility to use Flash SMS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Short_Message_Service#Flash_SMS) when sending one-way OTPs using Azure MFA / Multi-Factor Authentication.

  13. Azure MFA Trusted IP limitation of 50 address ranges

    Currently per the article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/multi-factor-authentication/multi-factor-authentication-whats-next the Trusted IP for configuration "For requests from a specific range of public IPs" is restricted to a hard limit of 50 IP Address ranges.

    Please provide the ability to extend this number as there are companies like ours where the limit of 50 IP Address ranges makes this not usable for production environments.

  15. Pre-configure Microsoft Authenticator Application

    I was wondering if its possible to pre-configure Microsoft Authenticator application when pushed out through SCCM/Intune for managed devices. It would be nice if the Authenticator Application could be pre-configured with both Code & URL-Address for the MFA setup, so that end-users wont have to do it themselves. It would also enhance the security aspect if its pre-configured centrally.

  16. Allow customization of MFA Text Messaging

    Allow the customization of MFA Texts to be branded by company name. currently, this is hard-coded to be "Use this code for Microsoft verification". I've been asked by my Executives to allow this to be branded for our company rather than Microsofts. i.e. "Use this code for <CompanyName> verification."

  17. Control “Remember MFA for devices that users trust” on an application basis

    At the moment “Remember Multi-Factor Authentication for devices that users trust” is only a global setting

    For most of our application InfoSec is fine to have 14 day before reauthentication and that’s a fair compromise between usability and security especially for things like the SfB App on the mobile

    Nevertheless for some applications we want to have AAD enforce MFA for every login as the data in those systems is highly confidential, e.g. the system that manages the payroll and benefits for our top executives

    So we’re asking to have an option to overwrite the “Remember Multi-Factor Authentication for devices…

  18. Improve Azure Authenticator App to require password or touch id validation before approving push request.

    Currently, if you receive a push notification to the Azure Authenticator app while the phone is locked, merely swiping the notification and selecting View allows access to approve (or deny) the request. Other authenticator apps (Google, Lastpass, etc.) require the device password or touch id (on iOS) before the request can be approved. This is a security flaw and needs to be fixed.

  19. Reset MFA Authenticator setup as an admin

    For several months now, the "Additional security verification" page (http://aka.ms/setupmfa) from Azure MFA has memorized the Authenticator app and the corresponding device. (See attachment)
    Please offer the possibility to the administrators to remove the old paired device and the associated Authenticator app.

    Reason (for us):
    To configure Windows Hello 4 Business the Authenticator app must be used. Many employees have connected an old device that they no longer own or use.
    We do not have the SMS option set to available, and have set Multi-Factor Auth to Enforced. Using the "manage settings" from the MFA portal is still…

  20. Integrate Azure MFA with the Windows login process, maybe through Windows Hello for Business.

    From what I can see it's not currently possible to integrate Azure MFA into the Windows domain login process as a second factor. For example, if a user was to authenticate to the local AD first and then be required to use Azure MFA to add a second factor, using the Microsoft Authenticator app. This would remove the need for third party smartcards or hardware tokens.
