  1. Security code


    This is really damn sad for Microsoft, You keep nagging me for a code that you never send on cellphone or mail and threaten with closure of account just because I use an VPN and was logged on in Australia so I could see some local shows not allowed elsewhere- Have you not an understanding that people use VPN? Get your damn system in order!!!!


    Everyone using VPN`s may log on from all over the globe and in today's world one should think that MS would be up to date on that!

    Microsoft account security code - WHY?

    Thanks for the reply Greg.

    "If you turn on two-step verification, you’ll get a security code to your email, phone, or authenticator app every time you sign in on
    a device that isn't trusted. When two-step verification is turned off, you will only have to verify your identity with security codes periodically, when
    there might be a risk to your account security."

    Overkill.

    As Two-Step verification has never been turned on, I presume MS thinks every time I log into access pages on https://account.microsoft.com/ pages I'm a risk to my account. Even from computers listed in the 'Devices" tab of those pages. Even though I have
    to supply my MS password to get to those pages.

    Are you suggesting I turn two-step verification on, which is what I don't need?

  3. Duplicate Security Code Entry

    Following a Windows update in the last two weeks, I now have to enter my security code twice to access my computer. How can I adjust this setting to return to the single entry of my security code?

    Steps Taken

    These are the steps I'm taking to help you understand what I'm referring to...

    • Press the Power Button
    • Picture shows up with icon searching for facial recognition - select alternate options
    • Enter security code
    • Returns to original screen with picture and icon searching for facial recognition - I again select alternate sign in options link
    • Enter security code again
    • The start up process begins and I have access to everything

    Up until that update from two weeks ago, I only had to enter my security code once to gain access.

    Thanks.

    Chris

    That made me so facepalm. Some people have absolutely no clue. I hope they don't take you for granted with all this you're doing for them.

    SonicWall is a good security product, so Mindweaver's suggestion sounds like a good one and should make for a rather bigger baby step. Let's hope they take it.
