    Security Key Blocked


    I have a problem with setting up security key with windows and microsoft account. During adding a key to microsoft account it asked me for pin. I entered PIN (for just testing I am using default pin for my yubikey). After couple tries it blocked. I do not know what to do. Yubikey Manager works fine and logins for other sites to.

    :)

  2. Blocked app is still playable, and doesn't look like it's staying blocked on the list

    Hi Courtney,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community. Let me assist you.

    • Is the child account signed in as a local or a Microsoft user account?

    I suggest you to check the Firewall settings on the system.

    Steps:-

    • Block the app from Recent Activity.
    • Press “Windows Key + X” and select Control Panel.
    • Go to System and Security and select Windows Firewall.
    • Click on “Allow an app through Windows Firewall”.
    • Select Firewall Settings and check the status of the app there.


    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    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.

    Some tentative suggestions -
    1 Perhaps you mean the 'Security key' for a WiFi network?
    2 Perhaps you mean the 'Security key' for your router's Admin functions that is controlling your WiFi network?
    3 Perhaps you mean your Windows user account login 'password' or a 'PIN' that you have set it up to accept instead?
