In this demonstration, we're going to enable Multi-Factor Authentication for an Office 365 user, so you can see how the process works and have a log in process works once it's been enabled. To enable Multi-Factor Authentication for an Office 365 user, open the Office 365 admin portal as a global administrator. Click on Users, and then Active Users. Find the user in the list for whom you wish to enable MFA and double click that entry. On the user's property page, down at the bottom, click "manage multi-factor authentication". Select the user in the multi-factor authentication screen and click Enable. Confirm that you want to enable multi-factor authentication by clicking the enable multi-factor auth button, and then close the box out. You'll notice that the multi-factor auth status now shows enabled for this particular user. Open an incognito browser window and launch the Office 365 portal. Login as the user for whom you just enabled MFA. If you've configured MFA properly, the user, Steve in this case, will be prompted for more information before being allowed to login. Continue the login process by providing the information requested. Be sure to save the application password, so that it can be used for other applications if necessary, and then go ahead and click Done. After providing the MFA info, you're prompted to log back in. Log back in, and be sure to supply the proper MFA info. As you can see on your screen, MFA is now working for Steve.
