Why Hotmail/Microsoft Sucks! Locked Out Security Code
I don’t write much but when I do, it must be something bad. Microsoft has grown to be one of the dumbest and most insecure company in term of services.
They are locking out HOTMAIL costumers with a message that says “Call us overprotective, but we want to make sure you can receive a security code blah blah blah” then they LOCK you completely out of your account and that includes SKYPE. Yes, they lock you out of your account, and the only way you can get back in is if you have another email address where you can get your security code.
Sounds good right? Not so much when your damn password/login is correct. I have had my account for over 10 years and they locked me out of my account for no reason. The only reason is that they want to give you a hard time. And how long will it take for you to change your email to one you can retrieve your security code? 30 days!
Are they completely NUTS? I think so.
WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN?
Do NOT trust Microsoft with anything. Your mail, your phone, your system (and we all know the problems with xbox one). I am not the only one that has gotten locked out, check out the forums. So many people have gotten locked out for NO REASON.
How can you be locked out of your email if you use it everyday? And we’re not talking about for 1 day but 30 days.
- If you are going to use live/Microsoft for anything like the xbox use another service provider
- If you are going to buy a Windows Phone, DUMP Outlook or any Microsoft based service (do you really want to be locked out?)
The main thing is, do you really want to be locked out by Microsoft for no reason because “They want you to be safe?” Really? No. Some of us have had this account for over 10 years, great password, great protection. Somehow you can’t protect it from Microsoft.
We don’t need your help locking us out from our accounts. Just leave us alone!
