Hi and thanks for using Just Answer a paid global support site

Is this security code for your hotmail or another product?

Augwest8 :

With this being for Hotmail
Once you log into your account
Click your name in the top right
Click on Account Settings
Then Click On securty settings
You will see a secondary email account you provided microsoft in the past
It will ask you to reenter that full email address in the box and it will then send a code to that email account

once you receive it and enter it
Type the code in the box provided

Then you will be able to add a mobile number to your account for future texts
