  1. recover password


    Applies to: Windows 10, OneDrive, Outlook.com

    My wife got locked out of her account. Computer says the password is incorrect.

    When we go through the password recovery process "I forgot my password" the following occurs:


    1. Microsoft asks for email to send verification code.

    2. We provide email address, receive email and enter the code

    3. Microsoft asks for the phone number last four digits because two-step verification is enabled.

    4. We provide phone number and get notification "You've requested verification code too many times. Try again tomorrow".


    As result my wife cannot log in for three days already.

    Microsoft support over the phone doesn't work anymore.


    I was looking for "Microsoft angry customer support phone" but couldn't find any.


    What should we do?

    :)

    Hi Bob,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience that you are experiencing. I will definitely assist you.

    As you have already tried to recover the password, unfortunately there is no other option to recover the password. However you can try to recover the password from the below link and check if you are able to recover the password.

  4. recover password

    Recovering forgotten W10 log on password

    Hi John,

    We have different ways on how to get your account back. First, let's check if the Caps Lock
    isn't ON, because passwords are case-sensitive. Then, if you're using the right password but still can't sign in, we suggest that you follow the steps provided on this
    article for more information oh how to recover your
    Windows 10 account.

    Let us know if the suggestion works for you.
