How to Change Your Phone Account
I will teach you how to repair your computer!
Each popular operating system attracts its connoisseurs.
For stationary devices, the vast majority of users chose Windows, although IOS has also been gaining momentum recently, and the good old Linux is slowly disappearing into oblivion. The situation on the mobile device market is different. Free and available for download Android occupies a large part of the market.
In recent years, Apple products have burst into fashion on their iOS operating system and are only gaining momentum. Nevertheless, invariably, people acquire Nokia gadgets that have earned their trust and work on Windows Mobile. This product, or rather, a certain nuance of its use, will be considered today.
Why do I need an account?
When registering any modern device, you need to create a user account. Everyone knows that it plays an important role in the further use of the device. Which one? “Accounting” allows you to synchronize the settings of applications and the operating system with other devices of the same user, in fact this is a modified alternative to the usual username. If you have only one computer, the importance of this function is not lost.
First, let’s figure out if you need an account at all. If the user does not plan to further upgrade existing products, then registration itself does not make sense. Considering that the majority of users of Microsoft products, except Windows 10, use pirated copies, you can also forget about registering them.
Although programs for offline activation of such copies can be found an infinite number and in the end do not even make out which one is original and which is not. The founder of the company, Bill Gates, at one time threatened that this would not happen and all pirated copies would be strictly monitored, but everything went wrong as he wanted.
The fact is that the original product, even the already outdated Windows XP, costs fabulous money and is simply not affordable for most users. This leads to the use of pirated copies of software. All these nuances relate to users of both stationary devices and mobile. A situation when you need to update the system both on a computer and on other devices in this situation can not do without an account.
How to create a Microsoft account.
To create an account, you just need to register, leaving your basic data and confirm them by clicking on the link provided in the email that will come to the email specified in the questionnaire. A notification will also be sent to the indicated phone in case the user forgets his data, for example, password or login, or maybe both. The created account does not have any bindings to a specific device and you can enter it from any gadget on the Windows platform that has Internet access. Unlike computers, where Microsoft operating systems are found at almost every step, there are significantly fewer mobile devices based on Windows, mainly Nokia products. But absolutely any user who wants to refresh his device must have his own account in the system, without it updating will not be possible.
How to change a Microsoft account on a computer.
If the account already exists, but is created with any inconsistencies and requires changes, there are several options for implementing the goal. In general, this is not particularly difficult for any device used. First of all, you can do the necessary operations through the official website of the product. By entering the username and password in the necessary fields, the user will be taken to his profile, where, in the settings, all the previous data that needs to be changed will be indicated. You can change not only the name and place of residence, but also the phone number, email address, even login and password. The procedure is not much different from changing the account of social networks and, accordingly, will not cause any problems for any, even a beginner, user.
Is it possible to change credentials without an internet connection? The answer is only one. No! Consider the example of the growing version of Windows 10. In this operating system, you can disable user recognition when entering or exiting the system, and this can be done quite easily. But changing the password, even if the computer does not have Internet access, will not work in any way.
The system, in any version, will require exactly the data that was specified during registration. Even full administrator rights and account management settings will not help in any way. By disabling all optimization programs, antiviruses and firewalls, nothing will change. The security system will also not allow the use of elementary passwords in the form of a set of identical or consecutive digits.
How to change your Microsoft account on your phone.
Changing a profile through a mobile device also has its own subtleties. The vast majority of smartphones running on the Windows Phone system are, of course, Nokia. Therefore, we take as an example the mobile from the Lumia series. To change the account on this device, you will first need to reset all the settings to factory settings, and then, again, make the necessary changes through the official Microsoft website.
The process is complex and painful; restoring all personal attitudes can take a lot of time and effort. It’s much easier, in fact, to create a completely new record with reference to the number of your phone. Also, to change the password, you can go from the phone to the official support page of Windowsphone.com and in the help section go to the link “to change the account”. That’s all.
From all of the above, we can conclude that the process of changing a Microsoft account will not create any difficulties. Variants of its execution depend on the device on which this operation is performed. When using a smartphone or tablet with a SIM-card, the bias is made to link the phone number, and for a stationary computer system, Internet access is required. In general, there is a connection with the world wide web now and on almost all mobile devices. Communication on social networks is gradually replacing telephone conversations, people use their pocket gadgets to communicate with the world through the Internet. And, therefore, restoring your data on any device is not difficult.

How to change a Microsoft account on a computer and phone: One comment
- Oia 06/21/2018 at 11:24
Viber is a very convenient application that can be used not only on the phone, but also on the computer. This feature allows you to always stay in touch and use the program if you are working at a computer. The computer version is fully attached to the mobile and cannot work autonomously without it. What should I do if you change your mobile number in Viber on your phone and now want to change your account on your computer? Can this be done, and if so, in what ways?
Is it possible to change the user in Viber on a PC
Change user in Viber means a change of account. This function is available for all versions of Viber, both for mobile and desktop. It is carried out in the application itself through the “Settings” messenger. This can be done in a couple of minutes. You can change the data to an existing account or re-register. However, each of the options has its own nuances and you need to familiarize yourself with them so as not to lose data important for yourself from Viber.
Account Replacement Procedure
There are two ways to change a user: if you already have another profile in Viber and you want to log in with his data or completely deactivate your account and register again.
Without registering a new account
This option is suitable in cases where you regularly use Viber, but for certain circumstances you had to change your mobile phone number, but you do not want to change your data and lose correspondence. In this case, it is possible to simply indicate in your account a new mobile phone number and leave everything as it is. Chat history, calls, contacts, your profile picture and name. However, this has its own peculiarity, the main settings of the account are carried out only from the main device to which the SIM card is attached, therefore, this will have to be done from the phone from the mobile version, and after that the computer will automatically synchronize. To do this, follow these steps:
- Launch Viber on your smartphone.
- Below, select the “” section.
- Next, go to “Settings” and select “Account“.
- Among the available items, select “Change phone number.”
- Select “Change phone number, without changing the device.”
- Next, indicate the new mobile phone number.
- Confirm it using SMS code, after which the data will be changed in your account, and a notification will be sent to your contacts that the mobile number has been changed.
A similar function has become available for the latest versions of Viber, so before you change the number, update the application to the new version.
This method is suitable if you want to keep your correspondence and the data of your old account, and just change the mobile phone number. After the number is changed, you go to Viber from the computer and a warning appears on the screen that the mobile phone number has been changed in this account and whether you want to use this account. You confirm this action, and the computer version is fully synchronized with the mobile, also without losing any data.
With the registration of a new account
There is a second option. This is a user change, that is, registration of a new account. This method is suitable for those who do not want or can no longer use the old account, for example, you can’t log into it or want to work under new data. In this case, you can simply delete the application and re-register, while the old account will remain on the Viber server and you can return to it or completely deactivate your account.
If you want to register with a new phone number, and do not delete the old user data, then you need to go through the authorization process again:
- Install the program on a PC or exit the old account.
- The familiar authorization window appears on the screen, indicate your country and a new mobile phone number.
- Scan the QR code from the phone, synchronize the two devices and now use the messenger under the new data.
To register a new account, it must already be installed on the smartphone, since the computer version cannot exist without a mobile one.
The correspondence history will be empty, and you will also need to re-configure the profile. Avatar, name, date of birth and set the necessary parameters. But if you do not want to save the old profile and all the data stored in it, then before you exit the current profile, go to “Settings”, “Account” and click “Deactivate”. All your registration data, as well as the history of correspondence, will be deleted from the Viber server, and you will not be able to return to it in the future. This method is radical, but it allows you to protect your personal information from hacking and distribution. If you deactivate the account only on the PC, but not on the smartphone, then you simply untie the computer version from the mobile version and synchronization stops. And on the computer you can register a new one if you have another phone with a different account in Viber.
Can I use multiple accounts at once
If several users are working on the computer, it would be convenient to have access to several accounts at once and not to exit the program each time. But you should immediately upset that such a function is not available and is not planned in the near future. The company categorically rejects this version, as it re-reads the privacy policies and general security of the messenger. But you can install special clone programs or emulators with which you can double the program and enter it under different data. However, such a solution is fraught with problems and multiple errors that may affect not only the application, but also the computer.
