    A good advice i can give you on top of making 2FA authentication and changing your password is to make a strong password that has nothing to do with anything that could be associated with you.

    make it so hard that you will have to write it down because you cant remember it and add random numbers and things like a # or a ^.

    That will make your password almost impossible to breach.

    Hello apb1978,

    Thank you for posting on Xbox Forums. In regards to the Unfamiliar login issue, it would be best to change your password as a safety precaution. For more info on how to change your password, please follow this support link for How
    to Change your Microsoft account Password
    .
    As for why you did not receive any notifications either via your email or by other means, have you checked to make sure the alias on your account is an up to date email? I would also recommend checking
    to see if any of the emails have gone into your junk or spam folder as that can happen when you receive an email from a single source multiple times.

    If you have any other questions please feel free to reply back letting us know. Thank you again for posting on Xbox Forums.

    Change your password. Also make sure that you have a system set up to where you can always recover your account.
