    dear"

    A trusted PC is a computer that you've added to the password reset information for your Microsoft account. This information helps Microsoft verify the identity of the person using the trusted computer.

    If you ever forget your password, or if someone gains unauthorized access to your account, it's easier to reset your password from your trusted PC. When you request to have your password reset from a trusted PC, Microsoft trusts that you are who you say you are and doesn't require you to provide any additional information to verify your account

    A trusted PC is a computer that you've added to the password reset information for your Microsoft account. This information helps Microsoft verify the identity of the person using the trusted computer.

    If you ever forget your password, or if someone gains unauthorized access to your account, it's easier to reset your password from your trusted PC. When you request to have your password reset from a trusted PC, Microsoft trusts that you are who you say you are and doesn't require you to provide any additional information to verify your account.

    or

    It's a good idea to add as much security info to your account as you can, because it will help make your account more secure. For example, if you forget your password, or if someone else tries to take over your account, you can use your security info to get your account back.

    To get started with adding account security info, follow these steps:

    Sign in to your Microsoft account using your email address and password.

    On your account page, under Password and security info, tap or click Edit security info.

    Show all

    To add a phone number to your account

    To add an alternate email address to your account

    To add a trusted PC to your account

    To add a security question and answer to your account
    If you're creating a new Microsoft account:

    After you create a new account, you have 14 days to add, remove, or change your security info without the required confirmation. When your account has been in use for more than 14 days, you’ll need to verify your info by following the instructions we send you.

    Verify your settings:

    When adding your security info, you'll be required to verify your settings. You can verify your settings by following the instructions in the email sent to your alternate email address. Also, you can choose Confirm next to any password reset option to have a confirmation email sent to the alternate email address you specified.
