  1. I have to use my Microsoft account password to Sign into my account on my Xbox One Every time, ...


    So my account sign in setting on my Xbox one is set to "make it fast make it magic" with the kinect recognizing me and signing me in with no password required. But instead every time i turn on my Xbone it says "Couldn't Sign in Dimitri(me),Sign in using
    a controller instead." And i have to put in my Microsoft account password in too sign in why? Why am i getting a security challenge every time i try to use my account on my Xbone. I've looked at my Microsoft recent account activity and it shows Security Challenge
    every time i have turned on my Xbone all at the same IP address, State, City, Country. So how in the
    [Mod Removed] do i get it NOT to challenge me every [Mod Removed] time i try and sign into my XBL account? Any help would be much appreciated.

    :)

    How to password protect your Xbox LIVE profile

    Xbox LIVE password overview

    It is possible to download your Xbox LIVE profile to several different consoles. You may need to do this if you have more than one Xbox 360 console, or you want to play games at a friend's house. In such a situation, you may want to password protect your Xbox LIVE account so that no one else can sign in using your profile.

    Set the console to remember your password

    Once you have downloaded your Xbox LIVE profile to a console, you will be asked if you want the console to remember your password. The Remember Password option is usually off by default. This means that you will be asked for your Microsoft account password every time you sign into Xbox LIVE.

    If you don't want to be asked for your Microsoft account password every time you sign into Xbox LIVE, select the Remember Password option.

    Change the password protection on your profile

    You are required to set the Remember Password option after you download your Xbox LIVE profile. However, you can change the password protection on your Xbox LIVE profile any time.

    If you don't need a password to sign in:

    Sign into your Xbox LIVE profile. After you have entered your Microsoft account password, select the Remember Password option.

    If you choose the Remember Password option, you will not be asked for your Microsoft account password the next time you sign into your Xbox LIVE profile.

    If you need a password to sign in:

    You can restrict access to your Xbox LIVE profile on any console using your Microsoft account password.

    Steps to follow

    1) Sign in using your Xbox LIVE gamertag.

    2) Under Settings, select Account and then Account Security

    3) Choose the option for Password at Sign In.

    4) Select Require Password Here

    You will be asked for your Microsoft account password the next time you sign into your Xbox LIVE profile.

    How to password protect your Xbox LIVE profile remotely

    If you downloaded your Xbox LIVE profile to another console and it is not password protected, or someone has compromised your password, you can change the password from a remote location so that no one else can access your profile.

    Change your Microsoft account

    1) Sign into accounts.live.com using your Microsoft account.

    2) Go to Account Information and, next to Password, click Change.

    You can also use your console to change your Microsoft account password.

    Note: If the Xbox LIVE profile you downloaded does not require a password to sign in (You selected the Remember Password option), you will not be able to restrict someone from signing into your Xbox profile even if you change your Microsoft account password.

    You can remove your Microsoft account password so that other people cannot access your Xbox profile on other consoles. This will ensure that a password is required before signing into your Xbox profile.

    Remotely set a profile password from a computer:

    1) Sign into your Xbox LIVE account.

    2) Under Settings, select Account, and then Account Security

    3) Choose the option for Password at Sign In.

    4) Select On All Other Consoles.

    Once you have done this, a password will be required to sign into your Xbox LIVE profile on all other consoles.

    Sign in with Kinect!

    I had it recently where I had to manually sign in every time with my password when it use to just recognise me. But I'd forgot I had updated my account details online and changed my primary email address. All you have to do is delete your account on the xbox one and then log in with your updated email and password. Now I just say xbox on and it auto loads me in.

    Attempt a Factory Reset, Then attempt your initial login once again. this should correct the situation and return the unit to its original factory conditions. not to worry all your saved items will return via the Cloud.

    Being prompted for Microsoft account password to sign in every time.

    I'm having the same exact problem. Worked flawlessly for about two weeks now it prompts me for the password every time I try to sign in. The worst part is that it recognizes me and then says something like, "sign in failed, please sign in with controller."
    At that point it asks me for my password. I have my password saved for sign in and it still asks me nearly every time. I tried changing my old email alias associated with my LIVE account to my primary one on my Microsoft account and this didn't seem to help
    either. Most frustrating is that I tried to sign in this morning and it worked without a hitch. There seems to be no consistency to the sign in and I have no idea how to fix it. I use my LIVE account on 360 and also on PC to play Dark Souls. Could using it
    across multiple platforms be [MOD REMOVED] something up?

    Error Signing In. Xbox Live won't let me sign in at all on my 360.

    I am having this exact same problem. I know my email and password perfectly and I can sign into my account on the xbox website and microsoft, but it says my password is wrong when signing into xbox. I have tried changing my password several times and still
    no resolution.

    I used a gmail account to sign up for xbox live and it doesn't work now.

    Hi there, I've got a second gamertag with a gmail account that works perfectly fine, though the password for my email address is different to the one I use to sign-in to this website and the console itself.

    Have you tired going through the following link to reset the password? This will at least ensure you're using the right password
