Here you can choose different approval options. The natural ones to choose from are:

Use SMS as source – then select “text code for authentication phone” Here, the mobile number you possibly registered on user data will be automatically filled in and has to only be approved for use here.

Utilize Microsoft’s authenticator app then select “Verify Me Through the App” The App Authenticator finds one by downloading either from the Apple Store or Google Play.

To set up the authenticator app, press the “Configure the authenticator app” button and follow the instructions that are given.
