Re: Issue with windwos.
Get rid of social security numbers as identifier.  Teach good password techniques as they are NOT going away anytime soon.  Two Factor ID is the way to go - can be a bit complex depending on the app.  I always suggest a hobby as a password format - terms are unique, easily remembered and can be put together in complex strings with any informal character.  Rotation is easy too.  Do not email them.  Change immed if suspect.  But this is obvious stuff.

MFA
Most people don't have strong passwords, he said, and multifactor authentication is becoming mainstream. That is true. We just want to avoid passords all together.

Authenticator
It already let AD-connected apps authenticate via Microsoft Authenticator, an app released in 2016 to combine passwords with one-time codes for two-step verification. Yes. This is two-factor authentication. You still have to deal with password.

passwordless
This marks Microsoft's latest push toward passwordless authentication. This would be good. There is also authentication app from Microsoft, they can use that too

username/password
I think anting that can take users away from username/password is a good thing. Username/password pair is never secure.
