Windows Store App Development Snack: Don't Ask for the SMS Code in Dashboard

· Mobile Zone

imageWhen you get to publishing you may find it annoying to go to the dashboard as you are often being asked to put in a SMS code for verification.  The cause here is your browser is seen as insecure and thus you must confirm the login. So what is the solution?

  • Step 1: Make sure you login to Windows 8 with the same credentials as you use in the store.
  • Step 2: When you added you Microsoft Account to Windows 8, it would’ve emailed you a link to verify the computer. Make sure you have clicked that link.
  • Step 3: Use IE 10 and login to the dashboard.

And problem solved, now it will only ask you to login & confirm the login when the session expires!
