Disable MFA for one user only

Hello,

We have Microsoft 365 Business Basic plan.

Legacy MFA is disabled for all users

Security defaults are enabled

With the above setup, our users have to authenticate with Microsoft Authenticator/SMS.

But we need to disable that for just one particular user, and I can't find how to do it in Microsoft 365 Admin center or Azure Active Directory Admin center.

Unfortunately, Security defaults is an "all or nothing" configuration, you cannot exclude individual accounts when they are enabled.
