    Microsoft account keeps asking to verify


    About every 12 to 24 hours, a notification appears in the bottom right of my screen to verify my identity. If I click it, it leads me to the picture below. I have done this 10 times. Any ides?

    Think they want your Microsoft Account not your gmail account details.
    I have All of them but the one to sign in has to be my msn.com account I set up years ago

    When I set up my Microsoft account, it allowed me to use whatever email I wanted so I chose my gmail
