I’ve setup a new tenant in 365 that’s using security defaults and when a user attempts to login it displays the warning that they need to setup MFA in 14 days which is find but it only gives them the option to use Microsoft Authenticator or another authentication app.

 

For my other 365 tenants it used to give the option to use either an authentication app, SMS, or phone call verification. Can I adjust the security defaults to allow SMS or what would I need to change to give my users that option?

No, that's the only choice you get with Security defaults. You can use the per-user MFA controls though.
