* Once Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is enabled on your account, you will be signed out from all Microsoft apps like Teams, Outlook, etc. in all your devices. What you need to do is re-authenticate your account after setting up the MFA.

* Since not all mobile phones support multi-factor authentication, you will need to download the Outlook Mobile app for you to access your emails on your mobile device after MFA is setup. For the steps, kindly refer to this link – Setup Outlook for iOS and Android or reach out to EzyNode Tech Support Team for assistance.

* The MFA soft token app expires every 90 days. This means if you are using the desktop version of Outlook, MS Teams, etc. you will ONLY be prompted by Microsoft to approve your sign-in using the Microsoft Authenticator app after 3 months. But if you log in to your account for the said applications via any web browser, you will have to approve it in the Microsoft Authenticator app EVERY TIME.
