Just now when I opened the OneDrive app on my iPhone I noticed on the Me Tab on top next to my account the app is also showing my other accounts which have nothing to do with my account. 3 more are showing, one is  O365 trial I created but did not use my personal email address which is my main and only account I use on OneDrive and the other two are work related, again nothing to do with my personal account so why have they suddenly appeared? When I click on them,I get a message 'o add this account you need to enter your sign-in info' I've never used any of these accounts on my OneDrive iOS app.

Are they separate accounts using the same email?

Have you accessed them all from a windows 8/10 PC?

They are separate accounts using separate emails. I might have accessed them form a Windows 7 PC but not all from the same Windows 8/10 PC. 2 of them are work accounts,definitely not accessed at all outside of work or on same PC.

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

icloud, one drive - it's someone elses computer.

Are all those e-mail accounts loaded on your phone?

None of them are, never were. Only thing I can think of is that at some stage I might have signed in with some of these accounts in the Office 365 admin iOS app but it was deleted some time back. Maybe that's the reason?

Possibly, I was just looking for possible ways that one drive could assume that you were associated with those accounts

As you mentioned originally when you try to access one of the other accounts it asks you to authenticate so it is not signing you in, just provision a link to the accounts

Wonder if it is a corrupted cache file that is "remembering" old accounts or possibly MS doing some sort of data matching in the cloud
