Hi, my company has a another ms account and 2FA/MFA is activated for login validation. Unfortunately it is only possible to use MS Authenticator app bacause someone forgot to register any alternative method like SMS or email. Now the device with the connected app is gone and so no login is possible.

I can succesfully reset the password with an email validation but there is at the moment no way to login bcause of 2FA/MFA.

Who in the microsoft universe has to be contacted to reset this. I got the informations about the 2. email address, the paying method and so on ... I just a way to reset the 2FA method.

Thanks in advance
Dirk

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

    If you are the admin (and blocked) then you can reach out to 365 global customer service here.
