Looking for some info; pro's/cons as to enabling MFA on Office 365.
We are looking to push this out to Contractors and any experience of this would be appreciated.

Does it get enabled at a high level?  Can it be pushed out to single users?
How is it managed?

So working through the documentation on a test environment.
Tested user logging in to web versions of office 365 and asks to setup  authentication by text message etc.
But it doesn't ask me for my 'normal' password?

Also then if I open any client, say Skype or Outlook, it allows me in.

Is there a further setup to do or is Office 365 not able to accommodate ?
