Benefits to Azure AD registration for Windows 10 clients O365 sign-in - Would you recommend it?

Occasional Contributor

Our environment is Office 365 with Azure AD Connect sync of accounts to our native Windows Active Directory.  We use multiple Office 365 services including Office 365 ProPlus.


Currently our Windows 10 clients are domain-joined to the Windows AD, but not Azure AD registered.


Microsoft seem to be encouraging users to Azure AD register, and we note that the Office ProPlus 1710 encourages this via the "Add this account to Windows?" dialog (below),  It suggests 2 improvments, but I can't find the details.


Window can remember {Work/School Account} making it easier to sign in to other apps and web sites?

  1. How specifically is sign in remembered?
  2. To which services/apps/web sites is the remembered sign-in’s applied?
  3. How specifically is sign-in easer?

Clicking Yes below means that you won’t have to enter your password each time?

This implies that before Azure AD join do did have to enter your password ‘each time’. 

  1. Which service/app/web sig-in/password scenario does this refer to?
  2. What does ‘each time’ mean – each time of…..?


Has anyone experience of how Azure AD registration and the improvements highlighed.  I can't find any KB articles on this.

I'd like to know this as well, even though I have, additionally to your settings, enabled ADFS for true SSO.
As far as I know, you'll profit from the possibility to enable user settings roaming and I believe some OMS integration.
