Wait for the pop-up to verify that you want to transfer ownership. Then click the Transfer Ownership button to verify.

If a verification code arrives, either go to your email or go to your 2FA code and enter the given code.

After completing the transfer you will still be a member of the server. The access you retain will depend on the permissions tied to your role.
