  1. Lock out off account, security opt out possibility


    This is not a problem exclusive to Microsoft. While I understand the importance of secure passwords, two step verification, account lockouts and, other security measures. I ,however, would like the ability to opt out of these security measures when I see fit, such as when I have an account that does not contain information that I find sensitive, or do not have payment methods associated with. I find the amount of security I am forced into, to be intrusive. I know when any given account requires extra security and would like be able to make that decision myself.

    :)

    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.

    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

    Security & account

    Hi,



    I realize that you are facing the issue with the Microsoft account in Windows 10, let me assist you.

    In the issue description, you have mentioned that, “Each password change locks me out only to make another password change.” What exactly are you referring to? Is it the security feature that you have enabled or are you getting it randomly?



    For now, I suggest you to run the Microsoft Account Troubleshooter and check if it helps.




    • Type Troubleshooting in the search bar and select
      Troubleshooting.

    • Click on View All, in the left view pane.

    • Find and click on Microsoft Account and follow the on-screen instructions.


    Also, I suggest you to refer to the article below on
    Microsoft account help
    and check if it helps.

    Hope the information helps. Kindly write back to us with the updated status of the issue for further assistance on Windows. We will be glad to assist you.
