Microsoft account is a widely used service of Microsoft and is used by most of the internet users. With this user account, you can not only access the Microsoft services but, many other third-party applications can also be accessed. If you are unable to access your Microsoft account or while accessing, access to the account is denied, it could be due to lost or forgotten password. For the recovery of the account password, a commonly used method is two-step verification.
What is two-step verification?
Two-step verification keeps your account protected by making it more difficult for someone else to access your Microsoft account. In this verification, you need to use two types of identity- one is your password, and the other one is the contact method (used as security info). It means if someone has your password, they still can't get into your account without the security info. If you want to keep your account secure and protected, you should use a different password for all the accounts.
How two-step verification secures the account?
When you turn on two-step verification, you will receive a security code on the email address, phone number or authenticator app, whenever you use a non-trusted device dor signing-in. Whenever you use a new device or new location for accessing your Microsoft account, you will receive the security code.
