Microsoft just gave tenant admins the option to postpone Basic Auth "turn off" date to December

Brass Contributor

As most of tenant admins are aware, Microsoft plans to start disabling basic authentication protocols (except for SMTP Auth) on October 1st (this has been planned for 2 years already).


Recently they've made a blog post informing tenant admins that the "cut off" date can be postponed until December by following a few steps.


If nothing is done by tenant admins legacy clients will still be disabled on October 1st but it's now possible to preemptively delay to December or re-enable them after October 1st. 


Coming January 2023 there is no way around it, basic authentication will be off.
