This error indicates that your .Net Framework is not configured to use TLS 1.2 as the default encryption protocol.

How to Fix AADSTS1002016

In most cases, you only need to configure the .Net Framework of your operating system to use TLS 1.2 by implementing the following registry keys:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


(copy the text to notepad, save it as a .reg file and run it or implement the case-sensitive keys manually)

After the registry keys have been configured, you must reboot your system for the changes to take effect.

You should then be able to authenticate successfully to Microsoft Graph PowerShell and Exchange Online:

If setting up the .Net Framework for TLS 1.2 doesn’t solve it, you might need to look deeper into the TLS settings of your operating system.
