Multiple authentication for sharepoint online

Hello Team.

For SharePoint on premises,

We had multiple customers preferring different authentication provider to connect to their sites. For eg: one customer was asking for their Azure AD authentication with SharePoitn and other for their ADFS authectication with SharePoitn,

We create webapplication for each custoemr and extended the webapplication where one webapplciation was federated with customer Azure Ad and other with Customers aDFs.
My question is How can we achieve the same in SharePoint online.

Thanks
Athulya

Hi @AthulyaPillai-7025
Multiple autentication in SharePoint 365 is different from SharePoint Server.

With Multifactor authentication, user authentication is a two-step process and requires the user to prove his or her identity. In addition to passwords, the users are expected to acknowledge a phone call/ text message or mobile app notification to complete the verification process. Multi-Factor Authentication for Office 365 is a form of Azure Multi-factor Authentication, which comes bundled with an Office 365 subscription.

Hi @AthulyaPillai-3096 @AthulyaPillai-7025
By default, all SharePoint cookies are session cookies. These cookies are not saved to the browser's cookie cache and instead are deleted whenever the browser is closed. Azure AD provides a Keep Me Signed In button during login that passes a signal to Microsoft 365 to enable persistent cookies. These cookies are saved to the browser's cache and will persist even if the browser is closed or the computer is restarted.

Differs from SharePoint Server, there are no more other sign in methods in SharePoint Online. For more information, you could refer to:
