After your MFA is enabled

At some point after multi-factor authentication is enabled on your University Microsoft account, you'll be prompted to provide further information when you next attempt to log in to an Office 365 app, such as Outlook. This is when you'll be able to set up your multi-factor authentication.

Log in as usual

First, you'll see the usual Microsoft login screen. Sign in with your CRSid@cam.ac.uk email address and click 'Next':

Microsoft Login 1

You can set up more than one, and you can always change or update your authentication method
