Windows 11 Pro users will need a Microsoft account very soon

With the release of the latest Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22557 this week, Microsoft confirmed that Windows 11 Pro users will soon need a Microsoft Account (MSA) as well as an internet connection to set up their PC during initial setup. Microsoft has already made it the standard for Windows 11 Home edition users. Microsoft accounts will be required to set up PCs for personal use as well as for OOBE.

Windows 11 Pro installation requires a Microsoft account and an internet connection.

Three-quarters of the way down the extensive page available at the link below, and just before the general fixes, Microsoft explains:

“Like the Windows 11 Home edition, the Windows 11 Pro edition now only requires an internet connection during the initial device setup (OOBE). If you choose to set up the device for personal use, the MSA will also be required for setup. You can expect a Microsoft account to be required for future builds of WIP.”

Microsoft is currently testing the new changes and you can expect the modifications to be officially rolled out to the Windows 11 Pro operating system in the coming months. As before, installing Windows 11 Pro could be done offline by creating a local user account instead of a full Microsoft account. Unfortunately, this loophole will soon be closed, so make the most of it.

Microsoft MSA

“Microsoft accounts are configured by the user to access consumer-facing Microsoft products and cloud services, such as Outlook, OneDrive, Xbox LIVE, or Microsoft 365. The account is created and stored in the Microsoft Consumer Account System, from Microsoft.”
