How can I enable MultiFactor Authentication for my "Personal" Microsoft account, from within my azure Subscription?

The Microsoft account is the Creator / Administrator of the Azure AD, and I have a subscription setup.

Yet when trying to enable MFA, there is a note saying that only Administrators "Homed" in this AD can be activated for MFA..

Why can't I create MFA for the Microsoft account, which is the Administrator of the entire Azure AD?
