How to Verify the Site in Bing using Search Console?

Steps to import the site:
- Visit bing.com/webmaster and create an account.
- Then click on the “Import” button on the right and click “Continue to Search Console”.
- Login to the Google Account which has the site access in the search console and allows access to Bing in the prompt.
