Am I missing something here or did MS just not think their 2-factor authentication all the way through. I have family safety setup on my Xbox and when my child needs my password to allow a function, it seems I have to use an app password not my authenticator
app since I have 2-factor authentication setup on my Live account. Seems a serious design flaw and a pain.
Maybe I misunderstand...... Why would anything besides the proper password be needed? No App is required for Console use........ I maybe very wrong but, Either a child knows the password or not.... Seems like a decent security feature IMHO.
Missing my point. So, on Xbox I can set Family Safety and limit what my child accesses. So, let assume they want to add a new friend that require the "parent" password. Problem is since I have 2-factor authentication on my account, the Xbox is requiring
a "app" password, not my normal Xbox password or the code from my authenticator app.
