Allow MFA to be requested First and then Enter the username and Password

Good Morning,

we are currently having a lot of our users account being lock out by UN-authorized users doing brute force attack.

To Prevent Accounts from being Lock Out, is there a way that you can a) enable the MFA request first and then B) ask users for their Username and Password. ???



any suggestion or information will be highly appreciated.

Thank you for your post!

Unfortunately, enabling the MFA request prior to entering your login credentials wouldn't be possible, because MFA is a process where a user is prompted during a sign-in event for additional forms of identification. When it comes to protecting yourself against this brute force attack, I'd recommend reaching out to our support team via a Support Request or even implementing Automation to Block a Brute-force Attacked IP detected by Azure Security Center.

If you'd like this feature to be implemented, I'd recommend leveraging out User Voice forum so our engineering team can look into this feature request.


If you have any other questions, please let me know.
Thank you for your time and patience throughout this issue.
