There is planned work to address this scenario. We don’t feel that backup codes provide a good security option as they’re often misplaced. Also, it’s hard to have users print them out and have them when they’re needed. Instead, we are looking at a time-limited passcode that could be generated either by the user (just in time when it’s needed) or by an admin (for example a helpdesk agent). The organization admin would have control over when a user could generate these codes. The code can be used for a limited time, then it will no longer be valid.
Note – for areas with limited cellphone connectivity (or roaming charges), the code generated in the authenticator app will allow MFA login. The time-limited passcode is meant to stand in if the user temporarily forgot/lost their phone.

I agree that a one-time use bypass code generated by the IT Helpdesk would be a great addition and permanent one-time bypass codes for end users are not secure or ideal in a business/enterprise environment. Duo already has the bypass code feature and it would be a great addition to Azure AD MFA.

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.

We’re really pleased to let you know that we’ve released the first authentication method APIs to public preview:
So far there are APIs for managing phone numbers and password resets. When phone numbers are set with the API, the user can use that number for MFA and SSPR (as allowed by your tenant’s policy).
The team is hard at work at building out APIs for all of the other authentication methods, and we’ll update the response here as they’re released.

This is something that we are evaluating now for a future Azure update.
