How to: Connect to Exchange Online Using Multi-Factor Authentication 

Using PowerShell to manage your Microsoft cloud services like Exchange Online and using multi-factor authentication (MFA) separately is awesome. Using the two together however, not so much.

Microsoft documentation on this topic seems to suggest that all the required administrative tasks needed are to be performed from a shell that launched separately from the PowerShell console. I would rather be able to connect to Exchange Online using MFA via PowerShell through a normal console, or as part of another tool. The following is how this can be accomplished.

The first thing you’ll need to do is install the tool at this page. This will give you all the tools and libraries you need to install to connect to Exchange Online using MFA via PowerShell, including that special, magic console. Now that you have the tools installed, you can use this snippet to connect from a normal PowerShell console or from within another PowerShell-based tool.
