Enabling MFA in Outlook provides multiple benefits, including increased security for your data and protection against identity theft. It also enables users to access their email, contacts, and calendars on the go, with the peace of mind of knowing their accounts are protected. The added layer of authentication can prevent unauthorized access to accounts by hackers and cyber-criminals.
In conclusion, Microsoft has made a significant move towards increasing security and protecting its users’ sensitive information by enabling MFA in Outlook for Microsoft 365 subscribers.
