What will happen to my azure subscription, now that my microsoft account is locked?

Negin Kashkooli 26 Reputation points

I had a microsoft account ({my_email}@harsh.com .com). I recently created that for learning purposes and I used that to create an azure account and subscription. I worked with my azure subscription for one day, and the next day I wanted to sign in to my account, I forgot my password, and I attempted too many times, and now my account (outlook account) is locked.

I tried to unlock my account, but Microsoft didn't accept my request form for unlocking my account.

So, my question is that, what will happen to my azure subscription? Will I be charged for the services I created later on?

    Hello, @Negin Kashkooli !

    All of us have created a new account and forgotten our password at one point or another (although this is a good reminder to use a password management system or save your password somewhere safe). If none of the email recovery options work, you can still try to contact Azure support and use other forms of contact that have been associated with your account.

    Assuming you were using an Azure free account, you won't be charged unless you make the decision to go to pay-as-you-go (which you won't do unless you have access to your account):


    How do I ensure that I won't be charged?
    We’ll never charge you unless you decide to move to pay-as-you-go pricing. If you move to pay as you go, you’ll only be charged for services that you use above the free monthly amounts. You can check your usage of free services in the Azure portal.
