    YES PLEASE! I have just spent the past hour trying to figure out how to remove this authentication - without  any luck!

    Carla Standen Carla, I wrote to the tech support and based on the instructions below I was able to disable the authenticator for the account.  I only needed to complete the 1st part (Steps 1 -- 5) and now I can log on to M:EE without the authenticator.  I'm re-posting that here in hope that it helps you and others.

    If your subscription is new, Security defaults might already be turned on for you automatically. You enable or disable security defaults from the Properties pane for Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) in the Azure portal.

    1. Sign in to the Microsoft 365 admin center with global admin credentials.
    2. In the left nav choose Show All and under Admin centers, choose Azure Active Directory.
    3. In the Azure Active Directory admin center choose Azure Active Directory > Properties.
    4. At the bottom of the page, choose Manage Security defaults.
    5. Choose Yes to enable security defaults or No to disable security defaults, and then choose Save.

     

    If you have been using baseline Conditional Access policies, you will be prompted to turn them off before you move to using security defaults.

    1. Go to the Conditional Access - Policies page.
    2. Choose each baseline policy that is On and set Enable policy to Off.
    3. Go to the Azure Active Directory - Properties page.
    4. At the bottom of the page, choose Manage Security defaults.
    5. Choose Yes to enable security defaults and No to disable security defaults, and then choose Save.
