Unable to sign in to Microsoft 365 services

Being sick and out of office today, I was still planning on reading my company email. However, it turned out that I was unable to sign in to my Office 365 account due to some “verification error”.

Office 365 - Health status
The dark side clouds everything. Impossible to read your email is.

A few failed attempts later, I eventually managed to locate the “Office 365 service health” page (shown above). It confirmed that users may be unable to sign in using Multi-Factor Authorization (MFA) from Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia.

I particularly found the following status message captivating:

The configuration change hasn’t provided the expected relief within the controlled environment. We’re developing an alternative code update to resolve the connectivity issue between MFA and the cache provider.

Translation: We currently have no idea why this is happening. An initial reboot did not resolve our issues.

Get well soon Microsoft!
