    Connect my MS account or use Local account..?


    I use all the services from Windows 10: (Edge, Groove, Skype, Powerpoint...) i don't download things that i dont trust.. is it safe to use my MS account on Windows 10 orn't.. can any virus or PUP steal my MS account password or spam me with junk mails..? Should it be a good idea to use my MS account because i use MS services + even an xBox. 😊

    Hope somebody can help me :/

    The idea is you sign in with MS account and only sign in once which is safer than logging in lots of times to different sites

    Another compelling reason to use an MS account is that your digital licence gets linked to your hardware id, making it easier to reactivate in even pc fails to activate due to a hardware change/issue.
