Many times, the users don’t use the associated email id and phone number. So they cant access the security code. In that scenario, click on I don’t have access to these links. Now you have to fill out a security questionnaire. You may be asked about the subject lines of any recently sent emails, your birthday, credit card info, and many other details. You don’t even need to answer all the questions. You may have to wait for 30 days before getting full access to your MSN email account.
If you turn on the two-step verification for extra security, some of the apps or devices may not able to recognize your password because they are not updated to prompt a security code. In this case, you can use an app password instead of your regular password.
