    Interesting. As per their reply, they do store this pieve of information about you. And since it is specifically used to verify / identify you, it is personal data. So at first glance this certainly seems to be data you are entitled to request under GDPR. Dec 9, 2020 at 20:19
  • In support of @HagenvonEitzen's comment, Microsofts process for validating the identity of a subject requesting their data in accordance with the GDPR should take this into account - they can't block you from accessing your data under the GDPR by solely requiring you to verify the data they hold, they should be able to verify your identity and your link to the data without doing that.
