Hi,

I forgot my password for my email that's connected to my mobile number.
Other services usually text me a code but microsoft doesn't and I can only send a code to the email I'm trying to log in to (Which I'm not signed into because I forgot it...)

Is there a way to fix this?
I've only ever used this email for minecraft

    Hello @Danielle,

    normally, email account providers offer some kind of procedure to renew lost passwords.

    You need to prove you are the owner of the account using eg. an alternative email address or a phone number.

    Check the website of your email account provider for more details.
