Business value

Having an option to enable multifactor authentication for user accounts these days is extremely important. Some organizations even start to enforce such requirements. While Business Central fully supports this on the desktop, it was not possible on some mobile devices.

Feature details

We have updated core authentication components of the mobile app to support multifactor authentication. Enabling such flow in the user setting on your Microsoft 365 account and then using it on a mobile device (via an SMS code, authenticator app, or more) is now possible after updating the Business Central mobile app to version 3.0 or higher. You can search for the mobile app in Google Play for Android or App Store for iOS.
