If you're having trouble signing in to your Microsoft account, there could be a few different reasons for that – like you can't remember your password, have two-step verification turned on, or are travelling or using a new device.
Here are some suggestions to help you get back into your account as quickly as possible. First, try the easiest options:
- If you remember your password but it isn’t working, make sure that Caps Lock is turned off and that your email address is spelled correctly.
- Clear your browser history, or try signing in to your account from a different internet browser.
If these don't help get you back in to your account, try resetting your password or see if one of the other scenarios below applies to you and give them a try.
