If you have a Windows Phone, chances are you have a Microsoft account linked to it. This account allows you to access various Microsoft services such as OneDrive, Outlook, and the Windows Store. However, there may come a time when you need to logout of your Microsoft account on your Windows Phone. Whether you’re selling your phone or simply want to switch to a different account, here’s how you can easily logout of your Microsoft account on your Windows Phone.
Step 1: Open Settings
The first step is to open the Settings app on your Windows Phone. You can do this by swiping down from the top of your screen and tapping on the “All Settings” option. Alternatively, you can also find the Settings app in your app list.
Step 2: Tap on “Accounts”
In the Settings app, scroll down and tap on the “Accounts” option. This will bring up a list of all the accounts linked to your Windows Phone.
Step 3: Select “Microsoft Account”
From the list of accounts, select the “Microsoft Account” option. This will open up the settings for your Microsoft account.
Step 4: Tap on “Sign out”
In the Microsoft account settings, scroll down and tap on the “Sign out” option. A confirmation message will appear, asking if you’re sure you want to sign out of your account.
Step 5: Confirm Logout
Tap on “Yes” to confirm that you want to logout of your Microsoft account. Your account will now be logged out from your Windows Phone.
Step 6: Restart Your Phone
To ensure that the logout process is complete, it’s recommended to restart your phone. This will also prevent any issues with your account being automatically logged back in.
Step 7: Login with a Different Account
Once your phone has restarted, you can now login with a different Microsoft account or skip the login process altogether. To skip the login process, simply tap on the “Skip” option when prompted to login with a Microsoft account.
- If you’re selling your phone, it’s recommended to perform a factory reset after logging out of your Microsoft account to ensure all your personal data is removed from the device.
- If you’re having trouble logging out of your Microsoft account, make sure you have a stable internet connection and try again.
- If you’re unable to logout of your Microsoft account, you can also try removing the account from your phone completely. To do this, go to Settings > Accounts > Microsoft Account and tap on “Remove Account”.
By following these simple steps, you can easily logout of your Microsoft account on your Windows Phone.
