    Got a few minutes so actually read the changes, the main one is
    you must sign into your Microsoft account at least once in a two‑year period to keep it active
    So if like me you don't use a MS account to sign in then you have two years to to do so other wise it will close. That's things like Email, office etc. BUT in my case Office signs in every time its opened, so no big deal, and any other MS accounts I have are regularly entered anyway. (insider Forum, private / Family Email)


    AND in Paragraph 67 Page 3 Subsection 12 if you click on the link you get a signed picture of Bill Gates in a Tutu

    Scam clue:

    We want something.
    Enter your personal details
    Login
    Send financial details

    That sort of thing

    Real:
    We send a notice, doesn't require you to do anything except read it and note it
