Follow SharePoint Designer and Modern Authentication. This guide is written by Microsoft and will allow you to connect to SPO with Modern Auth from Designer.

  • The issue resolved by disabling Multifactor authentication in azure active directory. Below things i tried from my end to resolve the issue. 1. Access the azure active directory 2. Access my organization AD, click on properties, then click on Manage security defaults, the click on "No" for enable security defaults option. Commented Jan 17, 2021 at 19:04
