Authenticator issues

I am trying to get my outlook email on my iPhone.

When I sign into outlook, it takes me to the Authenticator App with a number displayed however, it says to go to the Authenticator App when I am already on it.

What is he doing wrong or missing here?

    Sounds like you'll need the account admins to reset the account so a new QR code can be generated with which you can scan in and relink the authentication device to the account.
