I have 2 step authentication and app password on. However, today, someone I know personally gave out my Xbox Live email address to some their friend. Can they reset/change my password/security emails with just my email address?

I got loads of Xbox 360/One digital games on my account and can't be bothered with hackers at this moment.

I know but can't the hacker just reset everything and wait 30 days or something? Which I have read on Reddit lol.

Ok, good lol.

But what about the 30 days wait thing that Microsoft uses for a account reset?
