Unable to autofill with Microsoft Authenticator

I'm currently experiencing an issue with the Microsoft Authenticator app, where when I attempt to autofill a username/password, I receive a message saying I need to sign in with my Microsoft Account to sync my passwords, however opening the app doesn’t ask for me to sign in again and my synced passwords are all there and can access and copy them too.

I’ve gone through the autofill instructions to no success.

Is this a bug in the latest app update or is there a way to fix this issue?

Many thanks and take care,

    Finally fixed in version 6.8.12. Took long enough.
