How to Fix the Error
If you’re encountering the “Additional Authentication Needed” error on your Xbox One, there are a few potential fixes.

If restarting doesn’t work, try signing out of your Microsoft account and then signing back in. To do this, go to the Settings menu on your Xbox One and select “Account.” Select “Sign In” and then enter your account credentials. Once you’re signed in, try launching the game or app again.
If you’re still seeing the error, it’s possible that there’s an issue with the content itself. In this case, you may need to delete and redownload the content. To do this, go to the My Games & Apps section of your Xbox One and select the game or app in question. Press the menu button on your controller (the button with three lines) and select “Manage Game.” From there, select “Uninstall” and then confirm that you want to delete the content. Once it’s uninstalled, restart your console and then attempt to download the content again.
Other Methods of Fixing the Error
