This message is displayed to enroll with Microsoft's Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR) or Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). Once enrolled, you will be able to reset your password from the sign-in page by selecting "Can't access your account?" or "Forgot your password". The enrollment process will require you to enroll a mobile app, phone number or email address.
