Login to your Live Account without a password

Noticed something new today when I was trying to login to my windows live account. There is a new option which says : Not your computer?  Get a single-use code to sign in with. This appears as a link right below the sign in button.

Windows Live Login

What is Single Use Code ?

If you are on a public computer or on a network which you do not trust instead of giving a password you can sign in using a code which is sent to your phone number. This number is not just any number but  should be a number already associated with your account already in your account settings.
