    Turns out I needed to change the Users > Password Reset settings and add multiple Authentication Methods.

    @ComputerHabit
    Thank you for following up on this and I'm glad that you were able to resolve your issue!

    For more information:
    Users can register their mobile app at https://aka.ms/mfasetup or in the new security info registration experience at https://aka.ms/setupsecurityinfo. You can enable security info registration for your organization by following steps at https://aka.ms/securityinfodocs. For additional help on using Authenticator app methods visit https://aka.ms/authappsspr.

    You can Require users to register when they sign-in by navigating to Registration under Password Reset:
