You can verify your domain in few methods. But I prefer to verify using option 2.
It involves fewer steps and most important it is easy.
In option 2 copy the meta tag that is shown.
Copy tag from the highlighted section.
Note: We don’t need HTML code. We only authentication code.
Now head over to WordPress dashboard where you need to paste the copied code into Yoast webmaster fields.
Open Webmaster tools
Open Webmaster tools in Yoast SEO plugin as shown in the image from WordPress dashboard.

That’s it. Your Domain ownership is verified. Allow BING 24 hours to update the crawling status.
