Happy Monday, everyone! Azure Multi-Factor Authentication is struggling, meaning that some users with the functionality enabled are now super secure. And, er, locked out.

Microsoft confirmed that there were problems from 04:39 UTC with a subset of customers in Europe, the Americas, and Asia-Pacific experiencing “difficulties signing into Azure resources” such as the, er, little used Azure Active Directory, when Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is enabled.

Six hours later, and the problems are continuing.

The Office 365 health status page has reported that: “Affected users may be unable to sign in using MFA” and Azure’s own status page confirmed that there are “issues connecting to Azure resources” thanks to the borked MFA.
