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.

Bing Rewards- Amazon and Paypal gift cards
I've had a account on Bing rewards for along time and I haven't seen an Amazon gift card but now I also don't see Paypal. those were the main reason I had an account and when I contacted them the first time they said its because of the region I live in. But my sister who lives in the same house as me has both an Amazon and Paypal gift card available. So I complained again and they said basically, some account get it others don't and its random. :/ please let me know if there is anything i can do :(

Support options for individual Special Needs users?
OTHER THAN high level large enterprise support contracts - And other than paying some high hourly fee, or a high per call fee, regardless of problem resolution > What Microsoft support options are available for . . . 1> . . . the work needs of any single small business and/or professional user? 2> . . . the special and unique personal and work related needs of the single business and/or professional user? For the purpose of this discussion . . . 1> "SUPPORT" requires an assigned personal contact (a human). All other support tools (internet resources, documents, AI chat, forums, etc) are part of a comprehensive package, and improve service while limiting total personal cost. However, a human element is required for consistency and trust worthiness of the support. 2> The special and unique needs involve Cognitive disabilities of the otherwise functional professional worker. The challenge of cognitive disability in this context requires attention (beyond product capabilities) to product usability, learnability, special training, product structure, and adaptability to the unique special needs of the individual. Cognitive and learning disabilities most often involve overlapping issues with adult Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD,ADD-inattentive type), Depression, Trust issues, OCD, Anxiety disorder, Bipolar and/or Manic episodes. Additionally, normal difficulties that accompany age, exacerbate prior difficulties, such as prior lifelong Adult ADD and depression. 3> It is expected that a combination of tools and enforced (yet customized) structure can assist the challenged functional professional; improving quality of work and life, work / personal life balance, health (reduction of stress, reduction of anxiety and coincident issues worsened by work stress). This allows the aging challenged individual to remain productive, successful, and confident of contributions, empowering the individual to continue work successfully and staving off self-imposed "forced" retirement.
