Security Proofs - ridiculous

Does anyone know where I can send an email to Microsoft to explain why I think it's completely ridiculous to have to enter a password to play video games?

It also seems ridiculous that I must provide an alternate e-mail address to be able to play. I had to create a new email just so I can verify my regular email account. Completely stupid and unnecessary. So I've spent 20 minutes *** around so I can play Castle Crashers which I've played no problem for the past few months.

 I just want to play locally - this seriously makes me want to buy another system. Too much crap just to play a simple game with my kids.

Thanks

Also if you don't understand the importance of security proofs, especially for the children's accounts, then god help you.

I have to agree, Microsoft is ridiculous. I've had to do this for myself and each of my 3 children more than once. I thing we'll be going to Sony with our business from now on. Absolutely maddening! This is why I switched to Apple and Android as well. Microsoft is a ridiculous and antiquated company.

Ok, that's fair enough. I searched on the internet for how ridiculous the set up was and didn't think that 3 months was that old. It's taken 25 minutes to enable me to access an account that worked fine 2 days ago. It has taken 3 phone calls and four text messages and I'm sorry but to me that makes the system flawed. Can you point me in the direction of the rules. Cheers

What utter rubbish. I'm sitting here waiting for another phonecall from Microsoft about an account and i've just received the fourth text message. Security is fine, the system is pathetically organised.

Security proofs are the best way to secure your account. Once you've done it once, you don't have to worry about it, but if your account got hacked and you didn't bother setting up any proofs, you'd kick yourself.
