What is the "Single-Use Code" Email from the Microsoft Account Team?


If you have a Personal Microsoft Account, which matches your employee email address, you may have received this email message:

From: Microsoft account team (account-security-noreply@accountprotection.microsoft.com)
Subject: Your single-use code

Hi jvandal@uidaho.edu,

We received your request for a single-use code to use with your Microsoft account.

Your single-use code is: 123456

If you didn't request this code, you can safely ignore this email. Someone else might have typed your email address by mistake.
