I want to sign into this messenger programme. I enter my name and password then I am brought to this weird looking screen.

Where do I access this code from?

It is asking for your Facebook second factor time-based one-time password.

It will be available inside the app where you scanned the QR code that Facebook presented. Those could be, and absolutely not limited to, 1Password, Google Authenticator, Facebook.app, Microsoft Authenticator, LastPass.

I know the Facebook app has a way to generate that 6 digit password, but I don't have the app installed - so I can not help you more :(

Don’t know anything about a qr code. Facebook to me is difficult to use. But their messenger programme works to contact some companies that way.

Let's add the built-in iOS 2FA authenticator to that (if the OP is running iOS 15). It works with most 3rd party apps that offer 2FA/MFA. I can't confirm if it works on FB Messenger, as I dislike how much info it scrapes from a device.

I tried to find the link in iMore, but couldn't. So here's one from another site.

Can you let me know which iMore link is not working? That may need to be fixed!

I don’t. I find the application easy to use.

Does the built in 2 factor authentication automatically receive a code when setting up something like third party requirements?

Not sure what you're asking here. When setting up a 3rd party app, you scan the QR code offered in that account then finish as prompted — which typically includes a test authorization. After accounts are set up, the built-in 2FA generates the required security codes. If you visit a site/authorize an app on the iOS 15 device, the code is auto-filled. If you access a site through a PC, for example, you'd have to enter the code manually.
