Remove a Microsoft account security proof

To remove an existing security proof

  1. Go to Manage your security info and sign in with your Microsoft account.
  2. Next to the proof you want to remove, click Delete.

Note If you have only one proof on your Microsoft account and you want to remove it, you may have to use that proof to validate its own removal. (For example, to remove an email address that is the only proof on your account, you may need to respond to an email message sent to that same address.)

To remove all of your security proofs

If you can’t access any of the security proofs that you set up and need to remove all of them, follow the instructions on the I can’t access my Microsoft Account security proofs  page.
