The September 15th, 2023 notification for stronger mfa authentication.

Administration 0 Reputation points

Having read this information a while ago, can someone confirm with me, if is it mandatory that MFA SMS and Email options will not be usable at all for MFA?

I've disabled the MFA registration campaign and disabled system-preferred multifactor authentication.

with these settings disabled, does that mean our organisation can continue using SMS and Emails as a form of MFA for users?

appreciate anyone who can confirm this for me.

    @Administration Apologies for the delayed response on this post.

    Even though you disable registration campaign, end users can still use SMS/Voice/Emails as a form of MFA.

    Refer to this QnA - where one of our Program manager @Luc van den Ende confirmed the same in this post.

    Let me know if you have any further questions, feel free to post back.
