Migrate to the Authentication methods policy in Azure Active Directory by September 30, 2025

Attention Azure Active Directory users! On September 30th, 2025, Microsoft will be retiring the management of authentication methods in the legacy Multifactor Authentication (MFA) and Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR) policies in Entra ID. This means that organizations must migrate their authentication methods to the converged authentication methods policy, which enables centralized management of passwordless, multi-factor authentication, and self-service password reset methods.

It is recommended that organizations manually migrate their authentication methods by following the steps outlined in: How to migrate MFA and SSPR policy settings to the Authentication methods policy for Azure AD. This will ensure a seamless transition to the new policy.

Note that the previously communicated retirement date of September 30th, 2024 has been updated to September 30th, 2025. So, make sure to mark your calendars and prepare your organization for the migration process.
