Disable: Security Defaults for users - Office

Brass Contributor

Hello!

 

I would like to disable defaults security as users get annoyed by security setup, as Microsoft enabled security by defaults.

I don't want to use MFA, Conditional Access or anything else. (yes, I am aware of the risk!)

any suggestions?

Hi Mohamed,

Don't do it. MFA is probably the most important preventative control there is for identity attacks. It's the bare minimum level of protection organizations should be implementing these days.

You haven't seen a truly annoyed user until you've seen one with all their docs encrypted by a ransomware attack.

That said, you are in the right place for turning it off. If you are signed in as a Global Admin it should allow you to save.

PS: Don't do it.

Hi @Terry_Lazer,

it turns out that Password Self Service was on for all users.

when I switched off, it does not ask users again.
