The ‘per user’ or ‘per authentication’ billing/usage model is chosen when creating a Multi-Factor Auth Provider in the Azure Management Portal. It is a consumption-based resource that is billed against the organization’s Azure subscription, just like virtual machines, websites, etc.
A subset of Azure Multi-Factor Authentication capabilities are offered at no cost to Azure Global Administrators when the corresponding Azure Active Directory has not been provisioned with Azure Multi-Factor Authentication for directory users.
The billing model is selected during resource creation and cannot be changed once the resource is provisioned. It is possible, however, to create a new Multi-Factor Authentication resource to replace the original. Please note that user settings and configuration options cannot be transferred to the new resource.
All costs are rolled into the per-user or per-authentication cost of the service. Organization (changed from “you”) are not charged for individual phone calls placed or text messages sent to your end users when using Azure Multi-Factor Authentication. Phone owners may incur roaming-related or other costs from their telephone carriers to receive the phone calls or text messages
Billing is based on the number of users enabled for Multi-Factor Authentication.
