Microsoft Account

Microsoft provides a range of products and services from Windows, Office, apps, cloud and gaming. Access to their services is provided through login credentials (username and password) associated with a Microsoft Account. Azure is no exception — a Microsoft Account is required to sign up to Azure and subsequently access the service. You therefore need to choose or create a Microsoft Account for Azure:
