The Hotmail Login page allows users to log into their email accounts as well as control how long they would like to stay logged. Some email clients such as Windows Live Hotmail does not require users to always re-enter their usernames and passwords unless they change their credentials. This is because they provide applications that can be downloaded and installed on computers. However, when using a browser, you can always click on the ‘Keep me signed in’ option to avoid re-entering your credentials every time you need access to your email. With that in mind, let’s look at how to login to your Hotmail account.
Go to the login page
The hotmail login page can be accessed by visiting outlook.com or hotmail.com. On opening the page, you will see the sign in form just in the middle of the page. If you don’t see the form, it means that your account or someone else’s is already signed in. If someone else’s account is signed in, simply click on the person’s name on the right corner of the page and from the dropdown menu that appears, click ‘Sign Out.’
Enter your credentials
- Type your username under Microsoft account or rather your full Microsoft email address e.g. email@example.com.
- Proceed to enter your password and remember that this is case sensitive. This means that “capital letters and lowercase letters are considered different”.
- If you want, you can check the ‘Keep me signed in’ checkbox. This will allow you to automatically log into your hotmail account anytime you need to. However, this is not something you should do if the device/computer you are using is public or shared for security purposes.
Click sign in
Once you are done entering your email and password, go ahead and click ‘Sign In’ to access your email Hotmail account. That’s it.
