  1. Login Information


    Dear Sir or Madam,


    Many of your customers, such as myself, primarily use Google and Apple platforms, while using PC hardware loaded with Windows. From time to time, we wish to make changes to our settings. The experience for me has almost always been a complete nightmare. Login into Microsoft, or OneDrive and password resets is extremely complicated. The authentication process is unduly complicated. Retrieving or changing user names, passwords, and access codes, for several family members and employees, is unduly cumbersome. Often times, when the password is reset, we are prompted to enter the old password or new password again. When doing so, we are told that it is an incorrect or invalid password. How is this possible when the password has been reset? Why would we be asked to input the old password when we are resetting it because we no longer have access to it.


    I have taken the time to write this message as MS is imposing their products on PC and Windows users, such as their "new recommended browser". This is serious concern to me as MS is attempting to further marry me to a product I am dissatisfied with. As long as MS continues to make things as complicated and counterintuitive as they have historically done, the desired conversions will not occur. In fact, although I recently purchased 3 PCs for my family this summer, I am seriously considering selling these devices and getting MacBook Pros.


    MS ought to learn from companies such as Google, IG, FB, Shopify, and Apple. Security issues can be addressed in a practical, intuitive and end user friendly way.


    While little will come of this message, other than allowing me to vent the frustration experienced this afternoon and the 2 hours of lost work, perhaps others will be able to validate my views. The swell of voices could potentially lead to improvement.
