MS Office log-in?
1

I've been using various versions of MS-Office for a long time; lately it's been the Office-365 yearly subscription version, which provides 5 installations for PC and another 5 for iPad etc.

I renewed a few months ago, and today was surprised to be asked for a log-in to verify my account when I opened MS-Word. I dismissed the log-in request and carried on as normal. Checking with my iPad, the same request popped up, this time asking for log-in to enable editing and saving.

I dragged out the relevant details and logged in, only to be asked for my DOB and country of origin, since it was claimed that there are some age restrictions...

To be able to use MS-Word? -give me a break! Anyhow, a dummy DOB did the trick.

Since the log-in request was cross-platform, I'm sure that it wasn't a scam, but it's odd that only two computers requested the log-in. You can't be too careful, though, hence the dummy DOB.
