Azure AD and MFA

Jackie Butler 236 Reputation points

We currently are using Azure AD for O365 and will eventually do the AD connect.
With the MFA function does the MFA require you to log in on a desktop then brings up the second authentication?
Does MFA protect the desktop or only the O365 apps?

    MFA Desktop protection can managed with Windows Hello:

    or with Virtual Desktop:
