Block Device Code Authentication Requests with Conditional Access

Block Device Code Authentication Requests with Conditional Access

This article outlines the procedure to block device code authentication requests on Entra ID using a preview feature for conditional access policies. As a security best practice, it is recommended to restrict tenant access by disabling device code authentication, unless it is essential for specific apps to authenticate using this method. It is anticipated that most tenants will not require device code authentication and can thus eliminate it from their security protocols.

This article offers insights into the importance of setting up smart conditional access policies and securing tenant devices. Appropriate conditional access policies can help safeguard against data breaches, phishing attacks, unauthorized access, and other types of security risks. In conclusion, by carefully considering the usage of device code authentication and setting up effective policies, enterprises can enhance their security posture.
