Hi Ste,

Where the recovery code to be sent?
I've been having the code sent to my wife's email but when I put the code in and change my password it takes me back to the same message to have a code sent again

Hi Ste,

If your wife recovery email id is the one that you had set on your hacked account then there should be no problem in resetting your password. Can you share some screenshot of the message you will get at the time of adding recovery code?

Thanks!

Hi dannyds,
When I try & sign in I get " it looks like someone else might be using your account"
I then click next to verify account
I have 2 fill in missing part of my email address to have code sent, but I'm not getting a code , so I have 2 click " can't verify my account .
I'm then told 2 go 2 account.live.com/acsr
Here I enter my email address for the account I want 2 recover & then enter my wife's email into alternative contact . address.
Then I type the security characters
Then I get msg to check wife's email for code.
I enter code & then I can reset my password,which I have done 7 times now, I get msg 2 say. "your account has been recovered"
When I try 2 sign in with new password I get the same msg I had at beginning " looks like someone else is using your account & the whole thing starts again

Hi Ste,

Have you turned on the two step verification of your hacked account?

Thanks!
I am having the same problem. The recovery process is a joke. Email or chat support is not available. What's left to resolve this problem?
