If you are unable to remember the password for your account, you may now follow the steps to reset your password. From here, you are asked to select the reason you cannot access your account, such as having forgotten the password or suspecting that someone has taken control of the account. Microsoft then sends you a text message or an email containing your new password.

The method that you use to recover a lost email address differs depending on your situation.

The recovery process is typically quicker to complete on a console than it is on a computer.
