How can we improve Azure Active Directory?

Support for Hardware Token in Cloud hosted Multi-Factor Authentication

If the MFA server supports hardware tokens, why can't the azure hosted MFA support it ?!

    This is literally part of the reason we haven't moved to Azure. Get it sorted MS!

    *Please, please, please* pay heed to this request. Azure MFA would be far more flexible and easy to deploy if it also supported hardware tokens.

    Specifically, support for inexpensive U2F tokens would be welcome.


    - Organizations that cannot afford to subsidize the cost of mobile phones for there staff, and need an inexpensive alternative.

    - Individuals in rural areas with Internet access but poor landline or cellular coverage. Individuals in these scenarios may not have mobile phones. See the notes for details on the "Rural Call Completion" problems that plagued rural US customer for years (and impacted PhoneFactor roll outs negatively).

    - Individuals travelling abroad without reliable access to phone service.

    - In-flight Wi-Fi. Internet access, but no reliable phone access.
