I'm having a problem verifying my device as I have no SIM / mobile number, using WIFI only. When trying to access emails via browser I'm unable to proceed beyond the verify page without a mobile number which I don't have. Would it be possible to have the choice to verify by email PIN, which was available for my Microsoft account after setting up an emergency email account ?
