Helpful ways to protect your Microsoft account
I have seen more times than not, users reaching out about their accounts being hacked. Just a few tips for everyone who stumbles upon this post. > It is advised you change your password atleast once every three months. > Activate two-step authentication to ensure you receive a 6-digit code to a trusted e-mail or cellular device each time you attempt to login. > Never share your account details with anyone and remember, Microsoft employees will never ask for your account password. > Do not click on any suspicious URL's and always ensure you are on microsoft.com or windows.com before typing in any login credentials. This will prevent information phishing. > Never use the same password for more than two accounts. This prevents hackers from accessing other accounts on other websites. If at anytime you believe someone may have access or has had access to your account, change your password immediately. It is also advised that you change the e-mail address associated with your account. Should there ever be a need for further assistance, you are always welcomed to contact Microsoft customer care.

Microsoft Rewards vs Microsoft Community
I was wondering if this Microsoft Community is somehow related to Microsoft Rewards. I see that we can earn "Awards" here for being active in the community. However, do we also earn rewards for being active here in our Microsoft Rewards account?

What is Your Favorite Microsoft Reward?
When I first started, I liked redeeming my points for a free Redbox rental. It's been a few years since they've had that reward though. Now I redeem points for gift cards.

Just sign in and go. Access your favorite Microsoft products and services with just one login. From Office and Windows to Xbox and Skype, one username and password connects you to the files, photos, people, and content you care about most.

When you sign in to your Microsoft account, you have an all-access pass to Microsoft's premier services. If you use any of these services, you have a Microsoft account: Outlook, Office, Skype, OneDrive, Xbox Live, Bing, Store, Windows, or MSN.

If the email address associated with your Microsoft account ends in @outlook.com, @hotmail.com, @live.com, or @msn.com, closing the Microsoft account deletes any email stored with it after the 60-day waiting period. During the waiting period, however, your inbox will continue to receive email messages.

If you have forgotten your Microsoft account password and don’t have access to the security information on your account, the account recovery form is a tool that you can use to provide additional information so that Microsoft can make sure that you (and only you) gain access to your account.

Microsoft accounts work across all Microsoft devices, apps, and services, but a local account only works on the device where you created it. Because of this, although we can help you recover forgotten passwords for Microsoft accounts, we can't help you manage accounts that are local to your device.
