Microsoft updates security features for account holders

Washington, Dec. 10 : Microsoft is adding a few new security features for Microsoft Account holders.

Under the new security features, users will soon be able to see a recent activity log through Microsoft's website.

The log will show recent sign-ins, incorrect password entries, password resets, and security challenges, and the locations of each activity.

If anything looks suspicious, users can click a 'This-wasn't-me' button to get help locking down their accounts, PCWorld reports.

According to the report, users can keep an eye on recent account activity and get help with locking down their accounts.

The new security features will not be immediately visible, but users could start using them in a couple of days.
