Hotmail is a platform that was extremely popular a few years ago. In 2012, this was the most popular and used server in the entire world. In fact, is probably that you already have a Hotmail account. However, in 2013 Microsoft bought it and made a few changes, starting with the name. Now it is called Outlook, it has a better design, much stronger security and it is in company of others tools that Micosoft provided like Msn Hotmail, OneDrive, OneNote, Skype, Bing, Office and so much more. But since the changes are many, Hotmail login can be tricky. On this post we will explain you how to do it step by step.
Hotmail login is very simple and it won’t take you too much time. You just need to follow these instructions step by step carefully:
- First of all, to hotmail login you need to go to the main page. You can do this by typing in your browser live.com or you can also use www.hotmail.com or www.outlook.com; all these links will take you to the same page, so don’t worry about it.
- Once you are in the main page, you will see two blue buttons in the middle. Click on “sign in” and it will take you to a new page.
- Now here, you will see a box where you need to put your email address. When you are trying to have access to your email, you need to put your entire email address including @hotmail.com, @live.com or @outlook.com; once is done, click on next.
- On this new page you need to put your password. Remember that you need to be careful with the uppercase and symbols. Once is done, click on next. If you don’t remember your password, you can click on “Did you forget your password?” and it will help you to recover your account.
That is it! It will take you to your inbox and you will see all your messages, trades and other tools. Outlook email login is that simple! You just needed your email address and password and is all done.
If for some reason you forget your password, you can recover your account with your alternative email address or your phone number. Go to Microsoft Outlook and click on the option we mentioned before. The system will ask you which option you will like to use. If you click on email, it will send you a message to that address. If you click on phone number, it will send you a code that you need to type in. Once you have this done, you can reestablish your password. Now, this one needs to be easy to remember for you and hard to guess for others. If you still have issues to remember the password, write it down somewhere else and you won’t have more issues.
Another option is to active the 2 steps security access. With this option you will have more security in your Microsoft account and less problems with your password since the system is already checking that it is you. But we recommend you to read the instructions to do it correctly, you can find it in our page.
