Microsoft Account Recovery Code
The Microsoft Account Recovery Code is a code that can be used to recover an account in any situation. even if the account is hacked or blocked.
It is a 25 character alphanumeric code that can be generated by login into the account security section. We will get the code in a while but before that let’s talk about the benefits of it.
Benefits of Recovery Code
- If the account you are using is hacked but you have the recovery code, you can easily gain access back.
- If the recovery options (also known as security info) is outdated as you forgot to update the info and you have forgotten the password for your account too, you can gain the access to your account using recovery code
This 25 digit alphanumeric code (Microsoft Account Recovery Code) works as the master key to your email account.
But with great power comes great responsibilities (as mentioned in the spiderman movie) if someone gets the hold of this code apart from you, your email account and the data in it is in trouble.
So make sure when you save your master code you keep that at a very safe place because it is a sensitive piece of information.
Now let’s see how to get the master code
