Guide To Logging In To Office 365
The first step to logging in to Office 365 is knowing where to go. There are several options for logging in. Here are a few:
https://office.com/signin – This link will take you directly to the Office 365 sign in.
http://myapps.microsoft.com/[your domain].com – You can log in via the MyApps URL, and if corporate branding is applied to the login pages for your organization, you can add your domain to the URL as shown to load the branded version of the page.
https://www.office.com – This link will take you to the main Microsoft Office landing page. On this page (an others throughout office.com and microsoft.com) you will find a “Sign in” link at the top of the page. Click the link to sign in.

Step 2: Sign in With Your Credentials
The next step is to sign in with your user credentials.
Microsoft Office 365
Using a web browser, visit the URL from step 1. Enter your username in the field provided and click Next. Typically, your username is your company email address.
Notice the presence of the IncWorx logo included in the sample image of the sign-in page. This is an example of an Office 365 sign-in page where corporate branding has been applied. Once Office 365 recognized the domain which you are attempting to gain access, it renders the appropriate company’s page.

Tips & Troubleshooting: Multi-Factor Authentication
If your Office 365 tenant has been configured for multi-factor authentication (MFA), it means an added layer of security has been configured to further secure access to your organization’s data. Even if your username and password were compromised, the second layer of security now exists requiring that you enter a 6-digit pin that you receive via text message (or by some other means) each time you sign in in order to continue and ultimately gain access.
Multi-factor authentication is not seamlessly integrated with all types of apps (especially non-Office, non-browser apps). For apps that do not support multi-factor authentication you will need to create and use a special kind of password known as an “app password”. Microsoft recommends creating one app password per device and entering the same app password for any apps that require it on that device. Details for managing your app passwords can be found here: Managing app passwords for two-step verification.
For mobile devices, you might consider using the Microsoft Authenticator app to simplify verification using just one click instead of typing in a 6-digit code. Details can be found here: Microsoft Authenticator app.
For administrators looking to configure multi-factor authentication for Office 365, details can be found here: Setting up multi-factor authentication.
