How to enable 2-factor authentication on Microsoft account?

How do I enable two factor security on my Microsoft account? I have it enabled on my Google account, and I feel it adds a significant level of security for very little additional effort. I’d like to do the same for my Microsoft account.
Sveta has a good answer, but here's a link to the Microsoft Account support page in case you need it later:

In the ‘Account Settings’ page, section ’Security info helps keep your account secure’ make sure you have the email address and phone number filled out.
Next click the ‘Set up two-step verification’, and go through the setup steps.
