Hotmail Login

Hotmail is the oldest and the most preferred email service of the people all over the globe. Hotmail has now been upgraded as the Outlook email service with a host of new features to offer even more friendly and easy to use interface for its users. Microsoft currently owns the Hotmail service and had changed its name to Outlook.com email service after the takeover. To enter into your Hotmail account, you will need a valid username and password. It is also important for you to have a strong password that includes numbers, letters and special characters so that it is not easily detected by online hackers. But, sometimes your Hotmail password can be easily accessed by hackers. In order to prevent this and to make your Hotmail account details even more secure, Microsoft offers you the option of availing 2-step verification process to sign in to your Hotmail account.

Enabling 2-step Verification
You will have to visit the  Manage to enable the 2-step verification process for your Hotmail account. Make sure that you have already entered your mobile phone number and your alternate email address before you try to activate the 2-step verification process. You will also need to sign in to your Hotmail account to initiate this process. Once you enter the page for 2-step verification, you need to look for ‘set up two-step verification’ link and click on it. You will either have to enter your phone number or your alternate email address where Microsoft will be sending a verification code. Once you have entered the phone number or alternate email address, you need to click on the Save option that you find on the page. With this, you have now enabled the two step verification on your Hotmail account.
Sign in with 2-step Verification
After you have enabled the 2-step verification or accessing Hotmail account, you can log in to your Hotmail account the normal way by using your username or email address and your strong password. Next, you need to click on the sign in option and now you will be taken to another page where you will be asked to enter the two-step verification code. The code would have reached your mobile phone or alternate email address. All you need is to type in the code in the type box provided and then click on submit option to enter your hotmail account. The code will be a six digit code and once you have entered the code correctly, you will be able to access your Hotmail login sign in mails.
If you are going to use the same computer or laptop for accessing your Hotmail account, then you can tick the small box in front of this message the “I sign in frequently on this device. Don’t ask me for a code“. Once done, you will not be asked to enter the 2-step verification code when you access Hotmail account from the computer or laptop. If you are accessing your account from a public computer, then Microsoft will ask you to enter the six digit code that it will send you to access your Hotmail account.
