Microsoft Multi-factor Authentication not working with Remote Desktop in Microsoft Windows 2010

Ancy 6 Reputation points

We have configured MFA for our users in our organization tenant in MS Office. We are login Microsoft Windows using our Azure AD login (work or school account) from our office local PCs. In the daily routine, we need to remote our office other machines as well using our own Azure AD login. Now, the thing is, without configuring MFA, we can successfully do a remote of other machines. But after configuring MFA, it is being stopped and below message we are getting.


Could anybody help me to resolve this?

    Hi @Ancy

    Thank you for asking this question on the **Microsoft Q&A Platform. **

    Microsoft Office 2010 doesn't support Modern Authentication

    For those Legacy applications, you must enable the app password for your users (Enforce Azure AD Multi-Factor Authentication with legacy applications using app passwords).

    Then, your users must follow these steps -->

    Hope this helps!
