Yes It is a Show stopper for us. We need to allow SharePoint Designer to support MFA.

Per this article:
you need to use the app password you got when you set up Multi-factor Authentication(http://aka.ms/mfasetup)
I would like to thank Microsoft for the continuous support provided on the case.
In my case I was expecting my case I was expecting both of my Guest and Admin account should have access to SharePoint Designer, while only guest account has access to SP Designer but not the Admin Account.
Suspecting that firewall settings at tenant level might be blocking the access to SP Designer for Admin Account.

>Copy the password. (place it in a text file for safe keeping): not laughing at you at all here but the irony in this is off the scale :-)

>Show stopper for me: and for my client. But not for SPD - for the normal Office suite. It is unreasonable to have users to have to authenticate themselves via text message but then expect them to generate application passwords of Office inc. Outlook and Skype. It's hard enough desktop/laptop - totally unworkable on mobile devices.
Sadly another half-baked part implemented solution in the Office 365 space. That happens far too often :-( Microsoft is in control of the entire Windows, Edge and Office 365 space but continually falls to make them work together. Even the "Copy app password" button when generating app passwords doesn't work in Edge - you have to manually copy...
This was awesome and worked for me when regedit didn't. Thank you!

We have had to generate an App password to use with SharePoint Designer as Designer is not MFA Compatible. Hopefully this solution can work here.
To create an App Password:
Click on https://portal.office.com/account/ .
( make sure to login with your account that you're going to log into designer with.
When the page loads confirm that you see your account in the top right. You should be prompted to go through MFA at this point if you have it enabled.
Click on Security & Privacy
Click on Additional Security Verification.
Click on Update your Phone Numbers used for Account Security.
Next on the top, click on App Passwords. You'll see this located on the top of the page next to Additional Security Verification.
Click on the Create Button. Name it "SharePointDesigner".
Copy the password. (place it in a text file for safe keeping)
Type in the name of a site on our farm to connect
When prompted now for login type in your account name and paste in that app password

Enable MFA Support for Sharepoint Designer.MFA will be useless if this feature is not supporting as we have to disable to work with SharePoint Designer.
Is that why I can't login to my SharePoint Online site?
