Entering Security Question/Answer (so that you can reset your password)

In Windows LIVE you have the option to reset your own password if you forget it, however, this will only work if you have entered a security question and answer. To do this, follow the easy steps below.

  1. Login to
  2. At the top of the page, go to More then select All Services

  3. At the top-right of this page, click the small arrow
    that is next to your name, then select Account

  4. Under Password reset information, next to Default secret question click on Change

  5.  Enter your password at the top to confirm, and then select your security question and enter an answer
    *security tip* - Consider using a unique answer to the security question, i.e. something people could not easily find out, or if you don't think you can remember a different answer, consider adding a word or characters to your answer so that it cannot be easily found.

Now if in the future you find yourself forgetting your password, just click the Forgot your password? link from the login page. Then when you get to the part of selecting an option to reset your password, choose Security question. Just enter the answer you set and then you will be able to type in a new password.
