  1. Unauthorised account activity


    Hi all,I woke up this morning with a sms verification code on my phone. Immediately I thought someone has tried accessing one of my accounts. 12 hrs later I have noticed account activity that isn't mine on my Microsoft account. I immediately changed my password. Has Microsoft support got 24/7 live chat so I can report this hacking? Is it possible the hacker had access to my pc's files? Is there anything else that I should do? Is this common and what do you think the hacker achieved?Let us know please.Thanks

    :)
