  1. Verify my identity for my Microsoft account


    I need to verify my identity for my Microsoft account as I have a different cell phone number now.
    --- How do I do that?
    Everything else is the same as far as I know.
    Maybe I'll find out something different but now is the time to find out.
    My Windows version number is 1903 (OS Build 18362.418)

  3. I Can't Verify Identity of User Account on Windows 10

    Please ... I can't verify the identity of my Windows user account (Microsoft Account) on Windows 10 on my laptop. But, I can access my Outlook Email and Microsoft Account that connected to that Windows user account. I upgraded the security info to my latest mobile number, because I lost my handphone.

    When I verify the identity of user account in Settings> Accounts> Your Info > Verify ...

    but when I am back to the Settings, there is still no option for my latest mobile number. I have tried to click it many times, but my latest mobile number is not listed. So I still can't verify my identity of my Windows account.

    I have repeatedly tried this, including updating the security info about my latest mobile number for my Microsoft account and then restarting Windows 10, but there is still no choice of my latest number for identity verification.

    However, I can verify identity on the Administrator account on Windows 10 on the same laptop.

    So... What should I do? Is it important to verify the identity of a Microsoft user account in Windows 10? Can I change the Microsoft email address on a Windows account that has already been created?

    Hi,

    There may be several reasons why this message keeps appearing. Sometimes, this message is triggered if you are using a two-step verification in your email. We suggest that you try these methods below to resolve this concern:

    • Log out and log in with your Local Account password or the Microsoft Account password again to check if this is caused by a glitch.
    • If you are not using a Microsoft account to sign in, create one, and use it to sign in.
    • Verify your identity on this PC. Open Settings > Accounts > Under
      Your accounts you will see a Verify your identity on this PC link > Click on
      Verify. Follow the prompts to identify your account.

    Let us know if you will need further assistance.
