Disable MFA for activesync and autodiscover for non-ADFS o365

Hi All

We have an o365 environment that doesn't use ADFS but we want to enable MFA to secure our environment. Is there a way to disable MFA from activesync and autodiscover as we do not want to be prompted for the one time passwords when logging on to devices.

Thanks in advance.

No, if you enable/enforce it for the user, it will apply for all applications. Apps that do not support Modern authentication will have to use "app passwords" instead: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Create-an-app-password-for-Office-365-3e7c860f-bda4-4441-a618-b53953ee1183

You can toy with Conditional access and enable MFA for specific modalities only, but that will also not give you the granularity you want.

If you feel this question wasn't answered or should be closed differently, post an objection. The moderators will review all objections and close it as they feel fit.
