Office Client Access

To support access to Office 365 services, Office 2013 on Windows needs to have the following registry keys added. Click here for more information. Office 2016 supports 2Step Authentication natively.

HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Identity\EnableADAL REG_DWORD 1
HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Identity\Version REG_DWORD 1

2Step Authentication relies on Modern Authentication libraries from Microsoft, also known as ADAL (Active Directory Authentication Libraries). Applications that currently do not support Modern Authentication may support it in the future, and we will keep this list up to date.
