Hotmail is now part of the Outlook email service that forms the organized email domain of Microsoft. The sign in Hotmail process is through a unified domain or login Hotmail panel that provides access to any of the several services that Microsoft provides.
Hotmail account holders can sign into their account by following the steps mentioned below:
Type in Hotmail.com, live.com or outlook.com in their web browser.
They will be redirected to outlook.com where the login access is provided.
The page has a single and unified login panel.
Here one is prompted to type in their username which is the email address in full.
Once the email address is typed in one is asked to key in their password.
There are other alternatives such as using the access code feature that Microsoft provides to override the password requirement.
If you choose to log in using the password option, you need to key it incorrectly as the field is case sensitive.
If you choose to enter using the access code, this needs to be configured from before in your account settings.
With an app synced to your phone, you will be sent a security code every time you wish to sign into your Hotmail account.
You can then simply type in this code and not have to remember to type in the password every time.
For those who access their Hotmail account frequently, they can opt for saving the password of their account by the option that is provided next to the login panel.
The sign in process for Hotmail has been made secure by providing several security measures. The unified login panel makes it convenient for Hotmail users to access their account easily. In the following sections we look at the revised security settings that have been brought about in the new email regime by Microsoft. Also, the change that has come by in Hotmail with respect to inbox features is also discussed as well as how to form a new account on Hotmail domain.
