  1. Current session review

    It's not very easy to navigate and see current sessions that you are logged into. Like for example my work computer, phone and home computer. I should be able to find the active sessions to log off of it easily for security and privacy reasons! Now I'm scrolling around my phone and can't even fin the option to change my password easily! Very frustrating...

    • Locked out:

      I am locked out of the outlook app. Because I turned on finger print access in the app. My iPhone 6 is have a fingerprint scan issue so I can no longer get into the app to turn it off. I must log in online through safari to get email. Safari of course ; really wants to open the app. How can I turn off this setting? It is not available in online settings. I should not be forced to purchase a new phone to get access to my email, please help!!

                • How about NOT blocking an Email Adress, because of something non existing!

                  Don't block an Email Adress randomly to get a telephone number! There is nothing wrong with the email accounts you just want the numbers! AND on top of all that, there is no other way of getting your email back, than entering a phone number. You could also ask for an other email adress! Someone who hacked my email account has a phone too, so do not say "It is for your safety!" Its just for you, so you can sell my informations!

                  • First and Last Name Privacy

                    Outlook users should be able to control how their identity is transmitted when sending and receiving email. As it stands today, this is not possible although it is promised. When you attempt to clear the name fields in your edit profile page in the Outlook.com Web App, you are met with red text that tells you to put in a name anyway because you can "choose who sees it". However, there is no indication of this being true. You can change your name to some nonsense like "--", but this doesn't fix the fundamental problem. Why are you required to…

                      • Is there a way to see how many computer I am logged into? My account has been sensed out emails that I am not sending. would like to see log

                        I would like to check were my log in is active, like you can do on Facebook to make sure it's just computers and mobile devices that I am using and see if someone from different areas are logged in.

                        • be less serious about account security.

                          As someone who's had to experience getting locked out of an account because I was unable to remember my favourite teachers name from primary school years ago it's fair to say the security is taken way too seriously,and outlook help options and emails should be easier to access to try help recover it especially when it's important. I can't just make a new account and not do anything about it,it's ridiculous. Something needs done about this,I dread to think how many people have had the same problem.

                                I have already enabled 2 step verification, yet my account has been compromised repeatedly. I give my passwords to no one and use a randomized alphanumeric password that no one would ever guess in a million years. Microsoft needs to step up its security.
