All you need to do is follow these simple steps
- First off, in your browser type in hotmail.com. Now, this will redirect you to the official homepage of Hotmail. Most of the users are still confused on Hotmail and Outlook. Actually, they both are same thing. Both the site will lead you to same login page. And also, if you have @outlook.com, you can either go to outlook.com or Hotmail.com for login; as I have said earlier, both the page will lead you to the same page.
- Here, in the login page of Hotmail, you’ll see two empty fields. Now, you need to enter your email address in the first one and your password in the second one.
- As you enter both of your credentials in the respected fields, click on “Sign in”.
- Now you can access your personal Hotmail account. Check for your emails in “Inbox” section and send email to your friends in “Compose” Section.
Things to remember,
Login to Hotmail is only possible when both of your email and passwords are matched. Therefore, if you enter your password or email incorrectly, you won’t be able to login. So, enter your email address very carefully and as you can’t see the password as you type, it is your duty to make sure you enter it correctly.
And one more thing, as passwords are case sensitive, make sure you turn on/off caps lock according to your needs.
What if I forgot the password?
Forgetting the password is the common thing. There’s no need to worry on this as you can easily recover your forgotten password. So, to reset your password all you need to do is:
- First off, go to the official page of Hotmail i.e hotmail.com
- Here in the login page, click on forgotten my password, located at the bottom of the page.
- As you click on this link, you’ll be redirected to the password recovery page where you need to choose the exact reason why you cant login.
- Choose one among three option and click on next.
- Now, enter your email address and click on next.
- Now, this is the important part. Enter your alternate email address that you enter while registering fot Hotmail. Or if you haven’t enter one, enter your mobile number that you enter in registering Hotmail.
- After entering anyone of these, Hotmail will send you the recovery code in email if you enter alternate email address or text if you have entered mobile phone number.
- Now enter that code and reset your password.
