Microsoft is to introduce a new single password, with enhanced security across all of its services.
As reported by CVG, details of the new system have been outlined on Microsoft's blog, revealing that the new single password will cover areas such as Skype, Outlook, Xbox, Office and more.
"Two-step verification is when we ask you for two pieces of information any time you access your account - for example, your password plus a code sent to a phone or email on file as security info," says a post on the blog.
"This verification protects you everywhere you use your Microsoft account; on Windows 8, any Web browser, and even Microsoft apps and services on iOS and Android devices."
