If you click on the link it will take you to a page which looks like a genuine Microsoft login page. DO NOT INPUT YOUR DETAILS. IT IS NOT GENUINE AND WILL LEAD TO YOUR DETAILS BEING COMPROMISED.

If you are unsure if it is suspicious pay attention to the address bar – it should be login.microsoftonline.com and the date should be 2016.

If you are in any doubt about an email, it is always best to be cautious and delete the email before you click on any links. Always read the email carefully, often spelling mistakes, bad grammar and differences in font size are a give away that it isn’t genuine.
