There is a technique to connect to SharePoint Online with PowerShell when Multi-factor Authentication(MFA) is enabled.
There is a very limited list of SharePoint Online cmdlets
I would like to leverage the client side object model to access objects like the webs(spweb) and lists(splist).
Is there a technique( or example) to use my identity/credentials after I have authenticated with Multifactor Authentication with Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext?

Would there happen to be a way to do this without the web login? Use case: automated PowerShell scripts running on a schedule where the service account also has MFA enabled.

i was able to run my azure automation script that accesses an SPO tenant with CSOM + an account that has MFA authentication enabled by using the app password
i deleted the default app pass that was created, as it didn't seem to work in powershell, i found another post on tech community that describes the same problem

Seems to work with the app password now. Thanks for the nudge!

Worked great right up till the ability to create App Passwords disappeared from every O365 tenant I manage. Every client, even my companies own tenant, the option to create these is gone, and no one can seem to figure out how to re-enable it.

Given you're using App Passwords, I hope it's safe to assume you're using entirely sharepoint online.
If that assumption is correct, you can make use of;

Setting up Enterprise Applications within Azure AD is rather straight forward.
