Account access is a nightmare through Tor or VPNs
Stop blocking access to my accounts and forcing me to change passwords just because I'm using Tor or a VPN. Provide an option to disable this 'protection'.
I get it, all those different IPs accessing my account from all over the world look suspicious. They are all me. Being forced to change my password every couple of days is just infuriating.
This has been a problem for me as well for several years as I have been non-resident in the USA for 20 years but this complication of not accepting my PW when my VPN is active only started about 4 years ago.
Stop blocking access and making a password change mandatory because I forgot to change my VPN. This is just ridiculous at this point.
Traveling a lot so different IP addresses, or just trying to be safe on the internet and than Microsoft is to dumb to understand that some people use a VPN for safety: that is so suspicious: ridiculous
No insight from MS makes people waste precious time.
Than you change an old not used e-mail address to a new one and you are locked out because you are using your VPN from another country and you get locked out of your account, and you need to verify your account: this message comes momentarily you cannot aces this account, anther time wasting MS trip! and that is Microsoft implementation of e-mail and they are the specialists: no logic to be found however
I use VPN, this is why you see me from Chicago area. We had a VPN server in Montreal but it has been down for a few days.
Your security loop works very badly, it is done such a way that we get into a trap very easily (infinite loop) and then we cannot get out of it. WELL DONE.,

Sign in security annoying when using VPN as sign in always triggers security measures, which is a profound waste of my time. I appreciate that MS wants to protect users but the level of security should be the choice of a user and not imposed paternalistically by MS. I should be able to disable extra security measures as an easily locatable option if I want to.
Hello, would you leave our personal e-mail account ALONE? This FALSE POSITIVE, ANNOYING ERROR MESSAGE: Someone else did NOT access my account. I was on a VPN, stop flagging me to change my password everyday, I'm not going to take this nonsense anymore, I would truly appreciate it.
I'm going to leave MSN Outlook if you continue to force me to change my password every day. My password is perfectly strong and fine, stop asking me to change it because you reject users on a VPN. Stop using a hammer to block all users on a VPN. If this behavior doesn't stop, I'm going to tell everyone I know to blacklist MSN Outlook, RESPECT MY PRIVACY AND SECURITY, if you can't do that, I'll happily find another e-mail service, thank you!
I'm sick of having to verify my account all the time when logging in for VPN. I'm tired of having to login to another account just to login to one of my outlook emails and I'm not giving Microsoft my phone number anymore as these big tech companies have proven you can't trust them with your personal info.
I need to use proxy to connect to Internet, that's why the IP address and address always change, Microsoft always found the "safe policy" based on its mind but not the reality of the cycle environment. my mail box is banned and I cant reopen it through my phone as Microsoft set 1 message a day limit. how insane.
Gmail, Yahoo mail does not detect like outlook.
It is very inconvenient to mee, too.
So I delete outlook account from my pc and smartphone.
Microsoft's policy is too stupid, I think
Forced to change password frequently!
I'm moving all my emails away from outlook/hotmail etc. as it doesn't work with VPNs. I need a VPN to access email, and each time it triggers "suspicious activity". Previously I could log in and check that the location was accurate, but that no longer seems to be an option. Instead I am FORCED to change my password - which is so frustrating as then I have to update the new password on my devices. Why would anyone put up with such incompetence? How about giving me a CHOICE of whether I wish to take the risk? Don't treat me like a kid
