Power BI Desktop Sign-in issues with MFA

Unable to sign in on Power BI Desktop with MFA enabled.

I don't even get prompted for MFA


Is this a know issue?

Are there any workarounds.


If MFA is disabled, the Desktop sign-in works well.

I am locked out of my PowerBI Pro account.



I had setup Authenticator App as the only way for secure sign-in, and following a reset hard-reset of the phone, I lost the accounts from the app & its control.



Now when I try to sign-in, it asks for Authenticator App Code or verification through notification on the app, but since the app is not configured any more for the account, I am pretty much locked out.



I am a single /individual user, and don't have any administrator or admin managing the account.



Kindly Help!.
