Updated May 07, 2021: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience. Many of our largest customers, typically in the banking and financial industries, are governed by strict standards. Their employees have access to very sensitive data and can only access that data within the boundaries of a single country. Admins currently restrict access to sensitive data based on IP address. However, IP address is less accurate and less reliable than GPS data. Thus, admins need the ability to restrict access based on GPS data. Now, admins will have the ability to create Conditional Access policies to allow/deny access using a new type of Named Location based on GPS data. When the policy is enabled, end users will need to share their GPS location from the mobile device on which Microsoft Authenticator is installed. The user's mobile device is a good indication of the user's actual location at the time.
