    Security Info Change To Phone Number


    So right now i am in the process of having my security info being deleted. I didn’t have access to the email associated with my, which was the only type of security info i had on my account, so i had to delete it. With the start of this process i was asked
    either to enter an email or a phone number as a source of security info, i chose to enter a phone number. I was also told that my unaccessible email that i am trying to get rid of will be removed and instead the phone number i used will be replacing it. So
    my question is that will my account be sustainable with just that phone number? Will i not be able to have an xbox account since i will not have an email but instead a phone number? Will my account soon be deleted if i do not enter an email soon after that
    30 day period is up? This is the first time i am doing this and i have no clue what to expect or what is going to happen.

    :)

    It also helps to keep your security into upto.date so you dont run into.this problem

    One thing changes you use the current security into to.change.the one you want rather then reseting and waiting 30days

    The 30days is a security feature to allow you to recind any changes to your security incase your account is compromised you have a chance to reset the changes

    One of the many security practices you should alwyas keep KEEP your info upto date

    I go thru them every 6months or if something immediate changes I update it.right then and there

    Security Info Change To Phone Number

    Hello Windhelm,

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. We understand that you completed a

    security information change
    on your Microsoft account, and you would like to know if your account will be usable with just the phone number on it. You would also like to know if your account will be deleted if you do not enter an email address after the
    30 day period. There are several restrictions that the security information change places on your account. The article we provided contains more detailed information about what the security information change does to the account.

    The account will still be usable after the phone number updates. Once the phone number is updated, we suggest

    updating the rest of your security information
    . It is always best to have more security information on the account in case you lose access to one or the other. Also, the account will not be deleted if you do not enter more security information after the
    30 day period is over. We hope this helps!

    trouble receiving security code

    If you just changed your phone number to a new number, the security code is being sent to the OLD number.

    This is, so that hackers can't simply add their own phone number, and take control over your account.

    If you don't have access to your old number anymore, you'll have to wait until next month, when your new number becomes an active security info.

    While you're at it, in order to prevent such long waiting times in the future, make sure you keep your security info up to date, and have multiple security measures as a fallback.

    I recommend to have a secondary email, a mobile phone, and if applicable also a landline phone number added to your account.

    And most importantly: Enable Two Step Verification for your account, and set up the free Authenticator App on your phone. With that, a hacker can't get into your account, even if they get hold of your password, as the Live service needs a code confirmation
    that only your phone can provide.
