Today, I’m excited to announce the public preview of Azure Active Directory B2C in China. With more companies doing business directly with Chinese customers, supporting customer identity access within China is an important step in their digital transformation.
We’re bringing all the capabilities of global Azure Active Directory B2C service to China, with the following added benefits:


  • All your customer data stays within China.
  • You stay compliant by using the Azure China cloud services (through 21Vianet).
  • Faster performance by being closer to your customers and organization’s location.
  • You can use the most popular social identity providers in China like Weibo, QQ, and WeChat.

Existing Azure customers in China can try it out by going to the Azure portal in China and searching for B2C. New customers can try it out by going to Azure in China.

We always love to hear your feedback and suggestions and look forward to hearing from you! Let us know what you think in the comments below or visit our Azure AD suggestions and feedback site.
