Hard reset the device. This was a slight issue after a phone update with many devices and a hard reset solved the problem. It will mean that you will lose all of your data, but at least you will be able to access your phone. Unfortunately, any password attempt retrievals will only give you the option to reset your current password. You could certainly try this, but the software issue might still come back again.

Go to Microsoft's Forgot Password page from the PC. Follow the prompts and reset your password. You will then have to log out of the Microsoft Account on your phone and set it all up again with the new password including manually syncing your phone and updating the app store.

How can I retrieve my Microsoft account password?

I forgot my Microsoft account password. My WhatsApp has expired and I had to upgrade and I need to log in with my Microsoft account to be able to download new WhatsApp. I tried following steps to reset the password for several times, but the system keeps saying I must try later. What can I do next? Is there a way to get rid of the account at all? Or open a new account?

If you set up a new account, then you will not have the same login for WhatsApp. You may want to try and contact them to see if they will help you update it but I doubt they will. Your last resort is to contact Microsoft Support and let them know that you are trying to change your password with no success.

Go through the steps mentioned on this QnA page. You never want to forget your Microsoft password. After you have successfully reset your password you will want to write it down to avoid any further instances of forgetfulness. Make sure to sync all your Email & Account logins after you update your password so that everything on the phone is working properly.

My 10-year-old daughter set up an account on my Microsoft phone and forgot the password. I can't access the store as a result?

My 10-year-old daughter set up an account on my wife's Microsoft Lumia 640. She forgot the password and don't have enough information to recover using the recovery feature that Microsoft provides. We don't have enough info to use Microsoft recovery. I have tried: Using Microsoft recovery to my email account but that hasn't worked. I think it was caused by: A kid playing with the phone. She added an arbitrary email account which she hasn't used as far as I know, she doesn't remember the password. Microsoft recovery hasn't worked, I am unable to provide the level of information that it requires.
