How to verify your Outlook account?
Step 1: Log into your Outlook account.

Step 3: Click Your info.
Step 4: Click Manage your sign-in email or phone number.
Step 5: Select a method to verify your identity. You can select either Email "your alternate email address" or Text "your phone number".
Step 6: Depending on what you choose, you might be asked to enter your full secondary email address or the last 4 digits of phone number. Enter it into the box in the middle of the page and click Send code.
Step 7: A message with a confirmation code will be sent to your email address or phone number. Enter it into the Code box and click Verify.

What if I have troubles verifying code?
If you didn't receive any security code via the phone number you entered, try again or try a different number. If your code doesn't work, make sure you enter exactly the series number in the message, rather than the header series.
