Unknown account

When I'm about to login to Microsoft Azure I usually can choose between 2 of my accounts. But today there's a third one and I am very worried because I absolutely don't where it is coming from. I use my personnal PC and no one else used it. How can this happen ?
Moreover when i make a research on the domain name used on this email account (@ailiking.com) it's seems related to hacking and spam.

Another problem, when I tried to log in with my own email it said that there was a technical issue and, very strange, it wasn't my email that appeared in the message but the unknown one (@ailiking.com)...

I have changed my password and can now access to azure but I am worried about how something like that can happen.
Can someone in Microsoft team check if there was any suspicious activities ? Credit card number is registered in Azure so I'm not really serene...

    Simplest solution may be to delete all from both tabs, reboot, try again. Also check

    Thank you for your post!

    When it comes to securing your account and reviewing if there was any suspicious activity or logins, I'd recommend reviewing your Sign-in activity reports in the Azure Active Directory portal. Additionally, you can enable Security Defaults, which is a free feature, to require all users to register for Azure AD Multi-Factor Authentication, to prevent any unauthorized logins to your Azure tenant. Security Defaults allows you to authenticate all your tenant users via the MS authenticator app and will help to further protect your Azure account.

    If you feel like you need additional support or see more suspicious activity, I'd recommend creating a support request or enabling MFA for all Azure logins via a conditional access policy.

    If you have any other questions, please let me know.
    Thank you for your time and patience throughout this issue.

    Thank you for your answer.
    Well I don't see any suspicious activites or log in, at least recently, as it seems that I can't see further than 7 days.
    Security defaults is enabled but I am especially worried about the fact that this email is suggested when I try to log in as you can see here.


    It seems almost impossible, as this kind of features should be related to the navigator cookies I guess.
    And I just discovered that clicking on the unknown account redirect me to my own account, as if they was linked together, wich shouldn't be the case (I haven't this kind of alias in my microsoft account).
    I created a support ticket as suggested. I hope I'll get some information on how this can happen, because I don't really know at what point my security issue is important for the moment and if it's related to azure or microsoft account.

    Try deleting the ones you don't want to use from Control Panel\User Accounts\Credential Manager
