Home realm discovery during sign-in for Microsoft 365 services

IN DEVELOPMENT

We are changing our Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) sign-in behavior to make room for new authentication methods and improve usability.

This is a step towards a password-free future that enables additional credentials like FIDO 2.0.
