  1. SECURITY ALERT message from Microsoft


    Today upon trying to access my email the screen was different. Then a message appeared saying Microsoft locked the computer bc it was compromised ... something about accessing pornographic sight. Then a ladies voice came across and said not to shut down the computer and to call the Microsoft phone number appearing on the screen. I called the number and after a back-n-forth with the person on the other end, he said his business name was Geek Services. He said I had no protection and if I didn’t pay for security my computer would no longer be accessible. Can someone please enlighten me? I paid him $249.99 for 3 years of protection.

    :)

  2. text message alert sounds?

    Hi,

    To assist you better please provide us more information.


    • What is the make and model of the phone?

    • When you say ‘’cannot find how to set text message alert sounds’’ are you referring to setup a particular sound/alert for the message or there is no sound alert at all when you received the message?
    I also like to inform you that, you cannot setup a different alert sound except the inbuilt sound alert. If you refer to setting up your choice sound alert, I suggest you to provide your valuable suggestion and feedback using feedback app.

    Thank you. If you need further assistance on Windows let us know we will be glad to help you.

    SECURITY ALERT message from Microsoft

    Emergency Alerts

    Hi Stephanie,

    Just to confirm, is this the same thing that you tried on your phone, in order to turn off Amber Alerts?

    • Open Settings.
    • Tap on System.
    • Tap on Messaging.
    • Tap on the Change emergency alert settings link.
    • Turn on or off the emergency alerts you want.

    Let us know if this was the same thing that you tried.

    We would also suggest to reset your phone after doing these steps to ensure that the changes on your phone's settings will be refreshed.

    Simply press and hold the Power and Volume down button for 15 seconds and then release your hold afterwards.
