SharePointOnlineCredentials GetAuthenticationCookie ‘center’ is an unexpected token

I am using below piece of code to access SharePoint Online lists web services and receiving the exception at GetAuthenticationCookie method.

Please note that this code is working for some SharePoint tenancies and not working for some. I have already tried with both 16 version and 15 version client and client run time dlls and there is no difference in output.

Is there any setting that need to be checked/changed in SharePoint Online site/tenancy?

Code:

var securePassword = new SecureString();

foreach (char c in password) { securePassword.AppendChar(c); }

var credentials = new SharePointOnlineCredentials(userName, securePassword);

var authCookie = credentials.GetAuthenticationCookie(webUri);

Exception:

System.Xml.XmlException: ‘center’ is an unexpected token. The expected token is ‘”‘ or ”’.
