Hi Fercho,

Welcome to Microsoft Community.

I understand you concern. Let me help you.

To assist you better I would like to know, did you install Authenticator on the device?

The Authenticator app generates security codes you can use to help keep your Microsoft account secure. You can add your Microsoft account to the app by scanning a barcode or by manually entering a secret key. The app implements industry-standard security code generation and may also work with other services and providers. You can learn more about keeping your Microsoft account secure at https://account.live.com/p

Hope this information is helpful. If you need further assistance with Windows, let us know and will be glad to help.

Hi,

I recently received the text twice but I have not install anything.  Is there a reason why the code was sent to me or it's a sign that someone is trying to access my account?

Regards,

Hui Li

Hello Hui Li,

Thank you for your response.

I appreciate your time.

It is possible that someone is trying to access your Microsoft account.

You may try resetting your Microsoft account password.

After entering your accesss code that was sent to your phone, Microsoft has verification that it is really you trying to sign into your account.  Since you registered your phone to your account and then by calling the phone Microsoft knows that it is really you.
