I want to change my password and mobile number on my account I am then asked to verify my identity using the authenticator app.
I am then asked to approve sign-in request, and is asking me to go to the app that i am already on to confirm this. I cant confirm this though and i am just going around in circles.
I want to get this changed asap as i had an email saying i had a suspicions login in from a chrome browser, and i never use chrome so this is quite concerning.

    Are you able to switch the authentication method? Often when asked to confirm our identity we have several options. One is the authenticator app but if you have a phone number or alternate mail linked to your account that can solve your issue. The option for another method should be a blue text (as seen in the picture below) Screenshot 2024-01-29 at 11.34.47
