Keep your Microsoft account safer with two-factor authentication

If you use Microsoft services like SkyDrive, Outlook.com webmail, or Xbox Live, you have a Microsoft account. If you have a Microsoft account, you might use it to store personal information that you wouldn’t want hackers to be able to get at. You know, credit cards and tax returns and such. Turning on two-factor authentication can help keep would-be data thieves out, and your secrets secret.

Two-factor authentication—which Microsoft accurately calls two-step authentication—is based on a simple premise: It requires you to enter a single-use security code in addition to your username and password when you log in. This can help keep bad guys out of your account, even if they get ahold of your account name and password.

Set up two-step authentication in two easy steps

To start, log into your Microsoft account by visiting account.live.com and entering your username and password as instructed. Once you’re logged in, select Security Info from the list on the left-hand side of your browser window.

Microsoft may ask you to verify your identity by sending a security code to you via text message or phone call (if you provided a cellphone number when you set up your account), or via the email address associated with your account. Select the option you prefer from the list and press Next, then enter this code on the next screen and press Submit. You now have access to your security settings—and you just got a taste of what to expect from two-factor authentication.
