A few days ago, my little brother purchased a new Nokia Lumia Windows phone and for installing some of the essential apps, logged in with his Microsoft Outlook account in the Windows Phone App Store. But the worth thing was that he didn’t find any option to sign out of Windows Phone app store.
For an instance, your friend wants your phone for a few hours but you don’t wanna let him enter your Windows phone app store, you will be needed to log out of your Microsoft account from Windows Phone app store.
Is it Possible to Sign out of Windows Phone App Store
Finally, when my brother didn’t find any option to sign out of Windows Phone App Store, he came to me and asked for the solution of this problem. I opened the app store, explored each and every corner but disappointedly I had to say him no…I could’t find any option to sign you out from Windows Phone app store.
But, the thing stuck in my mind that why such an important feature is not available in Windows phones? So, I contacted to the Microsoft Windows Phone Support and told them about the problem but the representative directly told me NO….no there is no option provided in Windows Phone to log out of app store.
It’s Very Urgent, Tell Me if Any Solution…Any 🙁
The same lines I told to the support representative of Windows Phone and on such request he told me a rubbish option to sign out of Windows Phone app store. Yes, I’m calling it rubbish because it’s not the proper solution of any problem. But, nonetheless it’s the only solution! He told me to factory Reset Windows Phone by taking the backup of all the data. “Zing”!
I knew this fact that after factory resetting the phone, it will be automatically logged out of Windows Phone app store. But, it’s not a prominent solution of the problem, in fact it’s just a improvised way to be used in very hard situation.
Gave Feature Suggestions to Improve Windows Phone
I was really disappointed and told the support representative that signing out of Windows Phone app store is very common need and may be many people feeling this problem. So, he told me to give the feature suggestions for improving Windows Phone and I did.
