There are certain instances where you can log in to your Hotmail account and get the message “account temporarily blocked“. This could be a little frustrating especially when you really were expecting an important message to come in through the email address. Microsoft disables all accounts when they detect that an account is used to send junk messages.
If an activity that is not normal is detected in the email, friend’s invitation and instant messages, triggers are activated hence making the account disabled. The process is fully automated, so an account can be blocked at any given time. This is one of the best protection measure that is accorded to the people who are using this email service.
What happens after you have been blocked?
You need not worry after you receive a notification that your account has been blocked. You can actually use your mobile phone number to get the account unblocked. There is a verification code which is sent to your mobile phone number and which you will need to enter into a space that is provided.
To be able to enter the mobile phone number, you should go to a page named Add a phone page. But, to access the page, you may be asked to sign in at first. The message that is send to your phone helps to ensure that you are indeed not a spammer.
What happens if you can’t verify your account after entering the verification code? Well, you will need to get in touch with support on the contact support page. They will be able to provide you with the support which you badly require.
Important things to note
You should indeed understand that a request of a verification code to a mobile phone isn’t available in all countries. Also, not all mobile phone service providers offer this kind of a service. You need to ask your service provider if indeed the service is supported. Also, there are certain instances where the message that has been send to your phone number gets delayed. The duration of the delay could indeed be determined by the network which you are using. It is normal for you to wait for the message to be delivered to your mobile phone number for 15 minutes and if it doesn’t come through, you should ask for another one.
There is a limit regarding the number of times which you can ask for a verification code within a day. After reaching the maximum number of days that is required within a day, you will need to wait for another 24 hours before you start requesting for a another code.
Moreover, you should understand that there are other issue that could lead to your account getting blocked. Whatever it may be, you should not panic since you can easily get your account within the shortest time possible. You can just use the above mentioned steps to get your account back. There is nothing hard when it comes to getting this done in the easiest way possible.
