    You are welcome to re-ask the question there if you believe it's within their scope, but I'm not 100% confident that's where it actually belongs. Are you trying to set up 2-FA for an individual account or for a whole group of people? If it's the former, it's probably okay remaining here.

This article explains how to enable two factor authentication. It contains a link to the Office Admin Center. When the link was clicked the Admin Center opened.

Users > Active users > select user > Manage multi-factor authentication > select user > enable

When the user logs is, he/she has to enter his/her phonenumber, choose between receive a text message or phone call. Once the phone number has been entered, a text message could be received, the number be entered and login to office.com.

Note: it seems that two-factor authentication is multi-factor authentication in office
