    If you have enabled two step verification in the Microsoft account. 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.

  3. Are verification codes Free ?

    Are they ? After a code received, it doesn't seem that it deducts from mobile balance, perhaps it deducts after a month or so.

    Google and Microsoft use 2 step verification codes but are the free ?
