Hello,

 

For those of you who have deployed Azure MFA, how many are using the PIN feature? We're currently not using it today, but we did with a previous MFA solution. We're mulling over enabling it, but since Azure MFA supports out of band MFA whereas our previous solution, we're thinking it might not be necessary thoughts?

 

Thoughts from the community?

At most customers I use the authenticator app with MFA for the modern applications.

Thanks Nils. When you use the authenticator, do you require them to use a PIN as well?

I have activated if formself, but with the new Authenticator App on iOS all I have to do is enter my password and click "approve" on the iOS app notification. The "approve/decline" thing is the successor to the manual PIN entry.

Yes, that adds to the safety.
