Windows 10: Constant password changes forced every few days from Microsoft.com sit

    Constant password changes forced every few days from Microsoft.com sit


    Every 2 or 3 days when I try to log in my password fails and I have to get a new one then a few day later it fails again and I go through the same procedure of acquiring anew password. Is this happening globally or just on my account? I was thinking maybe Microsoft is doing it on purpose to make it hard for hacker? Or is it something on my side? What's going on

    I've been using the same password since day one of setting up my Microsoft Account. What message do you get when the password fails? Is it failing when you log into your PC or when you try to log into your account online?

    I have to use my windows laptop to go into microsoft.com and change the password, then I can go to the destop and login. I Try the forget password but I never works always say's password invalid after I get the code in the e-mail. Thats when I go to my Laptop where the password works and change the global password for both computers. When I eventually get a new password I can log on to the desktop and also logon to Microsoft account.

    So it only does it on one PC? What version of Windows 10 are you running on that PC? Are you logging in with a Microsoft Account or an Office365 account?

    windows 64 professional. Here is how it goes. I try to login from the last log from yesterday and it says it is invalid so I go through the forgot password and have them send me a code to my e-mail. put the code in and then it asks me for a new password. put the new password in twice and hit ok and then it asks me to login but then it says it an invalid password. But if I go to my laptop in log into microsoft.com and change the password there then that password works on both machines until my desktop craps out on me again with the password and the whole process repeats again. What happens if my laptop breaks down? I would never be able to create a login for my desktop. That's whats scaring me. Is there a way to create a password from you desktop without going through microsoft.com? Some one asked for my E-mail its mhaefner@roadrunner.com maybe a tech who works for microsoft could look at the logs and see what's happening?

    Do you still get updates for windows 10 on a local account?

    Yes, you still get updates. It can cause issues with the Store and Apps though. Sync also likely won't work anymore also. Pluses and minuses. I have no idea why your getting the invalid password prompt. I use my Microsoft ID on 3 PC's here, a laptop and two desktops. various different versions of Windows 10. The only one that gives me a similar issue is logging into Education version with my office365 account. It wants to do Windows Hello as a second stage verification, but always fails to send me the code via phone. Screen shots would likely help. You may have to take them with a camera though.

    My problem is solved. It fixed itself a few since my last post. I don't know how. Update? Microsoft.com saw the problem from my username? Any I no longer loose my password anymore.
