Using Password Boss to login to Microsoft MFA accounts

Password Boss can generate the 2FA codes needed to login to Microsoft Global Admin accounts that are protected with MFA.

Using Password Boss to generate the 2FA codes allows you to:

  • Enable 2FA on all Global Admin accounts - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
  • Easily share the 2FA codes with your team so any team member can access the 2FA codes from their copy of Password Boss. This replaces workarounds like shared phones, manually sharing codes in Teams, etc.
  • Revoke access to 2FA codes at any time.
