I just log on this new system to get it up and running. It's running Windows 10. It asked me when I set it up about my Microsoft account. Stupid me I put in my hotmail email account thinking nothing of it. NOW though it's telling me the passwords are the same for all my Microsoft programs, computers, and emails.
I am not happy about this. Also it's telling me that in 30 days if I don't authenticate my email address I will be denied access to my accounts. The problem with that is that it's telling me that they sent the authentication email to some Telus (internet provider) account that IF it was set up it would have been about 12 years ago, I also do not want for any reason the email for my phone be attached to my laptop. I do not ever have anything online have my phone number attached to anything I do online if I can help it. I have no earthly idea what the password or even the full email account would be.
Is there any way of fixing this....
I'm going to try pasting the email they sent me to the bottom of this post
Thank you so much for any help that I can get on this problem
Microsoft account Security info replacement Someone started a process to replace all of the security info for the Microsoft account [email protected]. If this was you, you can safely ignore this email. Your security info will be replaced with [email protected] when the 30-day waiting period is up. If this wasn't you, someone else might be trying to take over [email protected]. Click here and we'll help you protect this account. Thanks, The Microsoft account team
