You can either do this:


$cred = Get-Credential -UserName $username -Message "Please enter password for $username"

or this:


$encpassword = convertto-securestring -String $password -AsPlainText -Force
$cred = new-object -typename System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -argumentlist $username, $encpassword

and then connect with:


Connect-PnPOnline -Url $destinationTenantUrl -Credentials $cred
