    I have an endless Authenticator loop with an account that I administer. I moved to a new mobile device and apparently did not have a cloud backup of the authenticator data. The old device is gone and cannot be used set up authenticator on the new device because I need 2FA via Authenticator to set Authenticator up on the new device - therein lies the conundrum. I can reset the password, and I have done so a few times, but that's as far as I can get. As I am the only user in my org, and I am also the sole administrator and I am blocked from using authorizing it because I can't even authorize Aut

    Hi,

    • Have you checked if the hard disk is set as first boot device in the BIOS?
    • Which version of Windows is installed on the computer?
    • What did the HP supported suggested you to fix the issue?

    I suggest you to follow the steps provided in the following article and check if it helps.

    User Account settings screen, in endless loop


    I am trying to fix a friends computer that was upgraded to win10 automatically (not sure from what os before). It's an HP laptop and a mess, fixed most issues but can't figure this one.

    Start menu... settings... user accounts

    On this screen it should show the account settings but it is in an endless loop, the progress bar on the top with the moving circles keeps going and going, for over an hour now sitting on this screen. The screen is blank. It's the "Your Email and Accounts" tab. First in the list.

    Is there a known fix for this? Thank you for any help

    Why is Microsoft Authenticator Stuck in a Login Loop?

    I'm having trouble signing in to my Microsoft account using Microsoft Authenticator on Windows 10. I also use Microsoft Authenticator on my Android phone.

    Here's what's happening:

    1. When I attempt to log in, I receive a message that says, "We'll send a sign-in request to your phone to sign in with my email address."
    2. I click the "send notification" button on my computer.
    3. On my phone, I'm asked to tap the number displayed on my computer screen to sign in without a password. I do this, and it confirms the number I selected on my phone is correct.
    4. However, back on my computer, I get stuck in a loop with the message, "We'll send a sign-in request to your phone to sign in with my email address." This cycle keeps repeating, and I can't log in.
    It's worth noting that I can sign in to my account on Windows 10 and my Outlook account without any issues. I'm specifically having this problem with Microsoft Authenticator.

    In summary, Microsoft Authenticator is stuck in a continuous loop, preventing me from logging in.

    I've attempted several fixes

    1. Reinstalled the app.
    2. Reset my phone.
    3. Logged out and back into the Authenticator app on my phone.
    4. Reset my computer.
    5. Removed the two-step authenticator from my Microsoft account and then re-enabled it.
    The picture underneath is what I get in a loop.
