Best MFA for RDP to a Windows Workstation?

Hi All,

Windows 10 Pro

Windows 11 Pro

I have RDP set up on several Windows workstation such that customers can remote into the work computers from home with mstsc.

Problem: on some of them, I am now required to set up multifactor authentication (MFA) to accept a log on. What is the best way to do this?

Many thanks,

    Thank you for posting in Q&A forum.

    To configre the MFA for your RDP login, please kindly look into below Microsoft Official Documentation:

    Hope this answer can help you well.


    Best regards,
