microsoft authenticator app lost

Dmitro 1 Reputation point

Hello, I reset my phone settings. I forgot to unlock the protection, now I can not log into my account. I can’t receive SMS on my phone, because the operator is not working in the city due to the war. Is it possible to reset the protection?

    Hello @Dmitro

    Thanks for your post.

    If you remove/reset your phone settings and then you got lost your MS app, you will need to use the backup codes instead.
