Modern authentication will be required using MFA (Multi Factor Authentication). This means that the username and password is longer enough, it will require authentication from an authenticator app on your phone, Microsoft have their own. This will be across the platform for access to the web portal and your desktop apps such as Outlook, OneDrive & Teams. More detailed inforamtion can be found at this link –
