    unrequested code to reset password message


    I keep getting an e-mail from Microsoft with a code to reset my password.
    I have never requested one.
    The address I am receiving it from is legit:

    *** Email address is removed for privacy ***
    and I checked my login activity from the last couple of months and the weirdest one I see is

    ProtocolPOP3
    IP: ------------
    Account alias:
    ------@--------.com
    Time15/05/2020 01:54
    Approximate location: China
    Type: Unsuccessful sync
    Look unfamiliar?
    Secure your account


    If I click on "secure your account" I get a "Don’t worry. This sign-in attempt was unsuccessful, so there is no need to change your password.Learn how to make your account more secure"

    Anyone else got the same? Well, actually I have seen a few on the forum, and everyone says "ah, phishing attempt", but a phishing attempt from a Mocrosoft address is a bit odd, ther emust be something else.

    :)

      • If your PC is on a domain, your system administrator must reset your password.
      • If you're using a Microsoft account, you can reset your password online. ...
      • If you're using a local account, use your password hint as a reminder.

  3. Microsoft Account Password Reset

    Thanks for the reply, but it does not help me. The website does not proceed past step 4. After entering the security code, the website does not proceed to step 5. It does not give an error message, it simply greys out the next and cancel buttons and hangs
    indefinitely.

    Reset your password

    If you can't remember your password, follow these steps to get into your account.

    • Go to the Reset your password page.
    • Choose the reason you need your password reset, then click Next.
    • Enter the email address you used when you made your Microsoft account. This could be any email address, or an email ending in a Microsoft domain like hotmail.com or outlook.com.
    • Enter the characters you see on the screen (this lets us know you’re not a robot), then click Next.
    • If you've added security info to your account, we'll send a one-time code to the alternate phone number or email address you gave us. After you enter that code on the next screen, you'll be able to make a new password.
    I'll try your "Get account help by email" suggestion and post the solution here when I've found one.
