Hi, I am trying to access my onmicrosoft.com onedrive after getting a new phone.

I have my username and password, however I do not have MFA setup with Microsoft authenticator app on my new phone (i do no have the old phone). The only options when i sign in for MFA is to use authenticator. The option to use email or sms is not available to me for some reason.

I am unable to login to change how i get MFA or log a support request to microsoft or chat agents.

There are also no phone numbers for support.

How do get access to my account?

Thanks for your help

    Go to this link security-info and from here you'll be able to modify all your sign-in methods. For Microsoft Authenticator you'll just delete it and register your new phone to your account.

    I need MFA working to access those MFA settings.
