    Hello,

    Yes, Microsoft does ask for alternate info in case your account is compromised.

    Triple check that the page you are entering the information into is a site owned by Microsoft by checking both the link and hoovering over it before clicking it.

    Some common Microsoft sites include microsoft.com, live.com, and outlook.com.

    Beware of similar looking names with extra characters, domains that ended in a different names, or character substitution such as 1 for i etc.
