Azure MFA and OATH tokens

Unfortunately, we have users who are not willing to install the Microsoft Authenticator app on their personal smartphones and they do not have company-issued ones. Is it at all possible to issue them with OATH hardware tokens to use for MFA purposes?

I have seen older blog posts about MFA server, which was something you install on-prem but that was discontinued - do we have the ability currently to assign such tokens to users?

@IS-PayPoint, Yes you can use the OATH hardware tokens with Azure MFA. The feature is in Public Preview as of now. You can read more on this here.

I have seen that page, but it is outdated possibly!? "MFA Server - OATH tokens" this was removed from the portal and therefore I struggle finding where to configure these... I have also raised a support case so fingers crossed...

@IS-PayPoint, The document is not outdated. It has been last updated on 16th Aug 2019. The OATH hardware token options are still available in the portal. You are not able to find that possibly because, the MFA settings have been moved under the Security blade in AAD. I am hopeful that you would find the settings once you refer to the screenshot below.
