for purchasing on the site?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’m pretty sure that they can’t do that, as your card was linked to the playstore or the apple store, not your Microsoft account.

    First off I'd change the account password and run a good anti virus program to make sure you have no key-logger.

    How do you know someone was in your Microsoft account? Do you mean the Microsoft Store or the account you set up for Windows? If you bought thing in the Microsoft store with a credit card they may be able to buy additional items. Depending on how the payment method is stored it may be possible to get the credit card info for other purposes but the average person is not going to be able to do that.

    The chances are very few. Generally it does not happen while you joined MS Family account. When you joined is it necessary to provide bank details/ payment method?

    Please clarify exactly what you mean by a "Microsoft family acct.".
