My iPhone 8 has locked me out completely

Technician's Assistant: When did you last change your password ***** Apple ID?

A few weeks ago

Technician's Assistant: Did you try resetting through Apple's online account reset tool?

How do you do that

Technician's Assistant: The Mac Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

I don't think so, I just need to be able to get into my phone again
