Retrieving data from a Zenfone Max Pro M1with a dead display

Star I
Model Name: Zenfone Max Pro M1
Firmware Version: NA
Rooted or not: Not
Frequency of Occurrence: NA
APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app):
Recently due to an accident, my Zenfone Max Pro M1 with some rather important files was left with a dead display. Normally with an USB cable, retrieving data is doable but because my phone needs me to manually authorize it every time and that is not something that I can do with a dark unresponsive screen, I can't extract them.
Is there any way to bypass that authorization or are my files permanently gone?

Hi arghya,
Mostly the data is gone for good.
But, I do understand the criticality. You can try this and also do confirm if this works for you.
