Having issues with accessing account security and need to update and modify secondary contact email as the secondary contact email account is no longer active. The sign in page says I can't access the account until April 20th.

"This site requires a security code to sign in. When your security info updates on 4/20/2022 you will be able to access this site. You can still access sites such as Outlook and Skype that don't require a security code."

    Hi @Marnie McRae

    You can ask the admin to reset the 2FA authentication method to use MS Authenticator app instead of using a mobile number because as per my personal experience cellular networks sometimes have trouble delivering SMS: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_o365admin-mso_password-mso_o365b/reset-2fa-for-office-365-account/caec62dc-3603-4a3d-9670-01b1ddc3e519

    After you have successfully regained access to your account & you want to replace the verification method on your own then you can visit this link: https://mysignins.microsoft.com/security-info

    I hope this answers your question.
