so yeah... microsoft is asking for my email and password to "update my security". on my console... but it's saying that my password is wrong... i know its right because i can log on from my pc just find what's going on?
Sounds like your security proofs are out of date, or your password has appeared on a hacker's list somewhere (which Microsoft is periodically checking).
Microsoft is security minded and protects your account data, so 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 can include:
1) A phone # (preferably a cell # to text you a message - very convenient when away from home)
2) An alternate email address (which can be used to send a password reset confirmation to)
For me (and you have see i am living i another country and uses US account, and yes MS know that because my real phone, my real name and my real e-mail adrees in the account). they never asks that, i have a fear you caught in pishing...(some pirate send
a faulse e-mail and the inocente people caught in the net...).
For fix it you have in HIGH SPEED change your account password (in no time to give no chance to pirate change the security answer and personal information)and do that by xbox live id site (or when you enter in your account in xbox.com).
When have new features to your security, MS never send a e-mail for that to start, that all ways start when you login in your account they asks if you want improve your security, just follow the steps and done.
Repeting my self again CHANGE THAT PASSWORD NOW!!!!
I hope i help you and forgive my bad english it´s self learnerd.
