    App Password Not Working


    Hello everyone App Password Not Working :)

    I also get that annoying sign in page every time I sign onto Xbox, and when I try to sign in with my email and password, it tells me that my account info is incorrect. I used to be able to just press B and get out of it and it would eventually sign me in.
    Not any longer. I have two-step verification set up on my Hotmail account because banana heads from Brazil and China are always trying to get into my email. I got an app password twice this afternoon and attempted to sign in with it on my Xbox and it STILL
    says that my account info is incorrect. Is there any way around this, or fixing this, so I can play some games?

    Thanks!

    Tamara

    :)

    Microsoft Account Hacked

    Here you go buddy, some info! https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12414/microsoft-account-identity-verification-apps-faq

    people don't need to change email address when compromised, they need to change password and make sure they have proper security... that includes not using passwords on more than one service, if one service is compromised all those details are sold.

    Someone in another country will pop up with it, even if it takes years to happen. My skype password took approximately 4 years from compromise to have someone log in and use it.

    This app makes you click approve when logging into websites, and it's instant once you click "accept" the website will load in normal.

    Any devices that don't work with the app like xbox 360 will have you go to website once to create a password (it will generate a password that isn't easy) and you use that on those devices to login with your normal user name.

  4. App Password Not Working

    Hello there, this actually sounds like you may need to update and verify your security proofs, please follow the link and click "manage your security info' and sign-in and add security proofs if you haven't already and also verify them through sending a
    code to the mobile number or email:
    support.xbox.com/.../add-security-proof


    If you're still getting the error when signing-in, try deleting your profile from the console selecting the profile only option, clear your cache, restart the console and re-download your profile and hopefully you shouldn't see the error again.

    Delete and re-download profile:
    support.xbox.com/.../profile-move-delete


    Clear system cache:
    support.xbox.com/.../clear-system-cache


    Also here is the link to the two-step verification steps, please ensure you have followed this if you're using the app password feature:

    Sign-In Problem

    There's 2 things you could do. You could either change your password to a shorter one or create an app password. The app password would be a second password for your account so your current password would still work in other areas.

    Go to https://account.live.com/Proofs/Manage and enable Two Step Verification if not already done so.

    Below that, set up the Authenticator App.

    After you set up the Authenticator App, you should see another paragraph below with the option to create an app password.

    Create such an app password and use that password instead of your regular password on the Xbox 360.
