Change how you do additional verification

Last updated: January 6, 2019

Depending on how your Microsoft 365 admin set up multi-factor authentication (MFA) for your organization, you might be able to change how you so your secondary verification.

Tip: Before you can do these steps, your admin needs to set up MFA for your account.

The steps below are for accounts you use with Microsoft 365 in your work or school. If you're trying to set up MFA for a personal Microsoft account see How to use MFA with your Microsoft account.

  1. Sign in to Microsoft 365 using your password and second verification method.

  2. Click here to see the Additional security verification page.

  3. Choose how you want to do your second verification. Although all options are listed, your admin may not make them all available; you'll get a message if you choose an option your admin didn't enable.

  4. When complete, click Save.
