    Personal Vault on Android smartphone and Microsoft Authenticator

    I am using Office 365 and Outlook on my Android smartphone. Also the OneDrive app is installed.

    Admittedly, I never launched the Android OneDrive app before: there was no need.

    Yesterday I did and tried to open my OneDrive Personal Vault from my smartphone.
    After submitting the usual verification code (that was sent to my Gmail account), I assumed... to enter the Personal Vault that I had created and using on my PC.

    Instead, I got a message "Create a Personal Vault" and PIN message.

    I decided to let it rest and ask here for views.

    Just now I tried to access Personal Vault from my Windows PC.
    Usual procedure with verification code.

    Then a pop-up..
    Break free from your passwords
    Get the smartphone app to sign in without a password. It's more convenient and more secure.

    Most probably this is related to the 'Microsoft Authenticator app for Android'.

    So I installed that.

    However, even after approving all kinds of matters, I still end up with the pop-up "Create a Personal Vault".
    Within OneDrive on my smartphone, below "Personal Vault" it says "Tap to set up".

    One way or the other OneDrive on smartphone has no access to the existing Personal Vault.
    Does anyone have any clue?
