Due to the high demand from users, there are many email services that can be used, such as Hotmail. This is a lightweight and easy-to-use Microsoft email service, and since its merge with Outlook has sought to continue being the favorite email platform and consolidate its privileged situation.
Hotmail offers many advantages for users, that is why many people use it as the default platform when creating an account for the first time. If you’re new to Hotmail, don’t worry, on this note you’ll find some useful information for users:
How to create a Hotmail account:
Microsoft currently allows us to create new email domains, but first it is necessary to set up a Microsoft account in order to access all the services that this platform offers, such as a Hotmail account.
To do this, you just have to enter in the Microsoft login page and click on the option: «No account? Create one.» And in the new tab, click on the option: «Get a new email address».
Next, you will find a drop-down menu where you must select: «Hotmail.com», write the email address you would like to have (Taking into consideration that by now probably all the «common» names have already been used and you will need to try a combination of numbers and letters to get a new account) and click on «Next».
If you enter an address that is not available, a red message will appear. It means you should try a different one. Then, you will proceed to create a strong password and click on «Next» again.
If you prefer that your personal data remains confidential, it is not necessary to fill in all the personal information fields that Microsoft will request. However, this information can be useful to recover your password in case you forget it and to enter your account if you lose access.
How to log in to Hotmail:
The main thing to do to access your Hotmail account is to enter the Live.com login page and provide your full email address (including the «@Hotmail.com«) as well as your password.
The most comfortable way to access your Hotmail account without having to be enter your data every time you want to login, is to check the box «Keep me signed in». With this, you will only enter your username and password once, and the next time you try to login, the page will remember that access information.
It should be noted that this is recommended only if the computer you use to access your account is not used by several people. Otherwise, other people could also access your email account because your login information is already provided on the page.
If the option «Keep me signed in» is enabled, you can remove it by going to the top right of the screen within your email. There, where your username appears next to your profile picture you must go down to the option of «Log out» and click it. By doing this, the page will no longer remember your user data.
In case you don’t remember your access information, you must click on the option «Forgotten my password» and follow the steps that Microsoft is indicating.
How to generate a strong password:
Nowadays, it is not easy to remember all the passwords that Internet platforms require as an access method, which is why most people choose to assign the same password to all their accounts.
This is risky and dangerous since with modern intrusion methods it is very easy to crack passwords and the browsers where they are stored are usually also vulnerable to the attack of cybercriminals.
Experts recommend minimum criteria to be met by the user when creating a secure password. This includes mixing various types of characters (Upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) as well as setting a minimum of eight characters. It is also important to choose a password difficult enough for others not to guess it, but easy enough to remember it.
It is important to note that it is quite convenient to use different passwords if you have more than one Hotmail account. Never send your password by mail, do not write down the password or share it with anyone and remember to always log out of a non-private computer, otherwise anyone could enter your account.
How to download Hotmail for Android and for IOS:
Today, mobile devices have a preinstalled application where you can manage your Hotmail account without installing the application. Each operating system looks different, but basically with the same functions.
On Android devices it is necessary to enter to «Settings» of the device and look for the option: «Email accounts», and then in «Add new account» you must enter your user data, and wait a few moments until your Hotmail account for Android is set up on your device.
For Apple users this procedure is much easier to configure. You will only need to access your mobile device, go to «Settings», then «Accounts and passwords» and look for «Add account.» Here you will only have to click on your Hotmail account for IOS, enter your required data and press «Next» until your account is ready to use on your iPhone.
If the app isn’t preinstalled on your phone, you need to access the «Play Store» on Android devices and in the «App Store» on Apple devices, type «Hotmail» in the search engine and download it. Then follow the same steps previously mentioned to set up your Hotmail account.
