Question Info


Last updated July 5, 2018 Views 0 Applies to:

Microsoft Accounts now require 'proof' data, to allow you to 'prove' who you are using 'Two-Factor Verification'. This is wise given that off-the-shelf hardware and easily found open source software can crack passwords in very little time (see http://arstechnica.com/security/2012/12/25-gpu-cluster-cracks-every-standard-windows-password-in-6-hours/ ).

 

So, since Microsoft is security minded and protects your account data, they added proofs to secure your account. And, since Xbox LIVE accounts are built on top of Microsoft Account security, that applies to gamers like you and me. Proofs are:


1) A phone # (preferably a cell # to text you a message - very convenient)
2) An alternate email address (used to send a password reset confirmations)
3) A 'Trusted Device' (now works on Mac & Linux boxen)
4) A Security Question and Secret Answer

 

If you don't have 1, 2 & 4 filled in, you will be required to do to, so visiting http://account.live.com/ and clicking on Edit security info is a good idea. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windowslive/forum/liveid-wlsecurity/two-factor-authentication-tfa-what-is-a-microsoft/79321863-cf01-44f3-a181-87f531c5129e
