Microsoft Account Gets More Secure

Over the next couple days we will roll out a major upgrade to Microsoft account, including optional two-step verification to help keep your account more secure.

You should see this option show up in your account in the next few days. You can enable this capability at https://account.live.com/proofs/Manage.
