I can't recover my AAD administrator account

Copper Contributor

Hello team,

I have a serious issue, and you help is appreciated here.

My Authenticator app mobile app got crazy and I had to remove the app and install it again.

The problem is that I had configured my domain for MFA using the app and I did not backup the accounts that reside in the Authenticator app.

I know my credentials but when I am prompted for Authenticator approval I cannot proceed forward because I don't have the account configured on my phone.

How to proceed forward and get my admin account recovered?

P.S: that's my only Admin account and I haven't created a break glass account.

Your quickest feedback is highly appreciated.

Thank you @A1.
this wouldn't help, is there any MS support you think I can reach out to?
This is an urgent request.
I do appreciate.
