Cannot sign into the authenticator app

Matthew Petersen 20 Reputation points

The issue is that I cannot log into my university account because it requires me to verify my account with the authenticator app, but I cannot verify with the app because I cannot even log into into the app due to the authentication app also asking for verification from the "authentication app".

    Thanks for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A.

    Have you configured a backup for this earlier? if so, you can restore it without any issues. If not, you will have to reach out to your IT admin/support team to reset your MFA and then with the new security code try to re-add the account.
