Exclamation Your account needs to be more secure

Recently when I sign in to xbox live I sometimes get a message that says my account needs to be more secure. I already recieved a verification code via phone and yet about a month later I get the message again. I can still sign in and play online so far but I'm really worried that they will block my account or something. So if anyone knows if they would lock my account or anything or what to do It would be greatly appreciated.




Ok thanks to all of you as I'm not a tech person so I wasn't sure. I've been stressing about this for a while so it's nice to know they won't block my account and once again thanks to all of you guys.

Future questions about the Xbox 360/Xbox Live should go HERE.

They won't lock your account for something as silly as that.

I get the same message at least once a week. You're not going to get blocked for rejecting it.

Same here, I have added 3 emails, my cell phone, and my mom's phone and it still wants more. So I just reject them over and over again, been doing that for the last couple months. Nothing will happen for rejecting them.

It happens to me, too. I gave my two phone numbers and an email, it always wants more, so I just reject it and I'm fine. It asks it to me once a week, more or less.

It is annoying because it pops up every time I sign in. But from what I have read (here and elsewhere[plus my halfhearted attempts to shut it up ]) there seems to be nothing anyone can do other then reject it every time (which gets old fast)

Ugh, this CRAP I swear. Even if you go through the hassle of verifying all of this crap with them sometime later it will pop up again. And if you back out, it signs you out so you have to sign back in to get passed the stupid thing (sometimes that doesn't even work).

Most of the time signing out then back in will get you past it, that time. Or at least it has for me.

Just wondering, has anyone talked to MS about this?

Yeah, this recently started happening to me every time I signed in even though I had already entered the information. I found out you have to go to xbox.com and verify the info and after I did that it hasn't been an issue anymore.

xbox.com should prompt you to verify the info as soon as you sign in with your account info.

I think it was xbox.com/proof or maybe proofs I'm not totally sure.
