Windows login remote account or email admin more secure


#1

bothered me that when u login , Microsoft says u can make a recovery password, if u forget, would it be more secure to login with a remote account or a Microsoft email account in someones opinion, with the remote account if u misspell a password says insert a usb to change password, that doesn’t seem very secure if someone has a usb laying around, so not sure which route to go, remote or email account, tried to reconfigure to not allow password rests but would not let the admin account to that for any admin accounts …

Not sure what a remote account is, do you mean local account?

There are advantages and disadvantages to each type of account (local or Microsoft).

Personally I use a local account.
