Via Microsoft Support learn to access a compromised Microsoft account

by Jerry Wayne Tech Manager

When your Microsoft account has been compromised, it means that somebody might be trying to access your personal information or sending spam. They can steal your info such as emails, contacts, and photos from Outlook.com as well as OneDrive. Use the Microsoft Number assistance to get back the access of your account, review your personal information as well as settings, and also prevent this from happening again.

If you think that your account has been compromised and Microsoft hasn't sent you any notifications, then you can check it from the recent activity page. Here, you will get the information about what's been done with your account for the last month.


Why your account gets compromised?

When Microsoft notices some unusual activity in your account, so they for the time being blocked it. We all know that having a blocked account is very frustrating. But by blocking temporarily your account, Microsoft prevents you from junk emails as well as online frauds.


In order to access your compromised Microsoft account, you need to change or reset your password.

Look at the steps to change or reset your password

Open your account online or sign-in into it online.

  • If you successfully sign in your account, then you need to change your password straight away. By doing so, will stop an intruder who knows your password from signing in again. For this, simply go to the Security settings page, choose Change password, and then follow the on screen instructions to change your password.

  • On the other hand, if you are not able to sign-in to your account, then you should try resetting your password. Tap on the “forgot my password” from the sign-in page, select a reason you need to reset your password and then follow the instructions.


Recover your compromised Microsoft Account:

If none of the above methods helped you to get back your account and you don’t have access to the security information on your account, then you need to fill out the account recovery form. This is the tool which you can use to provide additional information so that Microsoft can ensure that you and only you gain the access of your account.

For this, you need to visit account.live.com/acsr into your browser and enter the credential information. After filling the info, simply click on submit button. Subsequently, Microsoft will respond to you in 24 hours. To do the same, you can grab the Microsoft Support team’s guidance. With their proper support, you will be able to access your compromised account in a very quick succession of time.
