  1. MFA: remember device permanently (& remember per device, not per app)

    Please:
    1. Remove the 60-day (max) limit on remembering Office 365/Azure MFA authorisation for a device/app.
    2. Make it so that MFA is remembered once per device (well, per user account per device), not once per app (for all Microsoft apps that authorise across all kinds of devices).

    Rationale: Having to refresh the MFA authorisation periodically does not add to security, because we already know that the app or device is trusted and if that changes (e.g. device is lost or stolen), the correct procedure to follow is for the admin to immediately revoke the authorisation for the device and/or…

  2. Enable app password creation when MFA is enforced using Azure Conditional Access

    I'm actually implementing this for a customer and this one small thing has caused a BIG hold up.

    I find it very odd that MFA being enabled from 2 different places would have a different effect. If MFA is enabled directly on a user in the Azure Classic Portal then, the app password creation option is presented during the MFA setup process. If MFA is enabled using Conditional Access policies in the new Azure Portal then, the app password creation option is not presented at all. Both are implementing the same function essentially but the latter blocks the apps that…

  3. Automatically enable MFA for all members of an Azure AD Group.

    Add the ability to automatically enable MFA for all members of an Azure AD group as they are added, in addition ask if MFA should be automatically disabled for users being removed. This could be via an option within the users setting of an Azure AD group.

    Today, you can use conditional access to enforce MFA on a per-group basis. This is Microsoft’s recommended enforcement model.
    We will be updating the per-user enforcement of MFA to more closely match how conditional access works, but this is still in the design phase.

  4. Set Default Country Code in Azure MFA

    When importing users from AD, if the country code isn't included in attribute Azure MFA will set the country code to +1(USA).
    Can a feature be added to allow the default country code to be set a the global level. So that in our case we could set all number to default to +44(Great Britain) .

    We’ll take this in consideration as we plan new features. In the short term, we are working on Graph API‘s that will allow you to change phone numbers in the StrongAuthentication fields.

  5. Management Portal 2 factor authentication

    Yes there is a way to enable 2 factor authentication for apps and hosted services etc, but if there is a way to enable it for the management portal I cannot find it.

    This is the same request, it's marked as completed by the Azure team, but the link they provide is for enabling it within hosted services and on prem servers, and doesn't actually appear to address the question.

  6. Manage Multi Factor Authentication via Group association

    Please add the option to add Multi Factor Authentication to Groups. Makes it much easier to manage.
