    Outlook.com security setting doesn't seem to want save to 'on'

    I was going to post this on the Microsoft Community forum, but their platform has been experiencing errors, bugs, and other issues where it won't allow many people to post a question.

    It seems to me, the 'On' slider switch position doesn't remain in that position for the security setting in Outlook.com
    I don't see a 'save' button anywhere either.

    How to get to the settings in Outlook.com :

    click/tap on the Gear icon in the top right corner >
    at the very bottom click/tap "View all outlook settings" >
    click /tap on General on the upper left pane (it has the gear icon next to it) >
    click/tap on Security.

    I guess I expended all means trying to find out what this setting does and what its intention is for existing under the settings in Outlook - free and personal email and calendar.
    If I had to take a stab at it, its probably linked with the setup options that are enabled under security. I don't know why MS would add this switch in Outlook.com if it's going to be overridden by the security settings that were already setup.

    chalk it up as not even worth trying to figure out and falling under the definition of the word 'Errant' according to the Urban dictionary.

    I just checked mine. It does the same thing. I can enable it while I'm on the setting, but going elsewhere, and then coming back, shows it's turned off again. I think it's a half complete option since clicking on "Learn more" right under it just loops you back to your inbox.
