I would like to be able to use my account normally as soon as possible and also would like to change my password ***** security. I would like to know how my account was blocked? What was the unusual activity and where?
Email technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

Priti,

Thank you for writing back. Yes, the most common cause for this is when Hotmail detected an unusual activity on your account.

Can you please tell me the username part of your account? (the part before @hotmail.com)
