Force to enter explicit UPN

Configure this policy setting to force all users that require MFA to log in to the machine using the UPN format of: user@domain.com. There are two settings for this group policy:

  • If this policy is set to Enabled, all users that require MFA must log in using the UPN format, otherwise an error message appears "Invalid User. Please use format user@domain.com and try again."

    Note:   All users that do not require MFA can log in using either the UPN format or NT account format.

  • If this policy is set to Disabled or Not Configured, all users can log in using either the UPN format or NT account format.
