- First of all the open the home page of Hotmail, a page will be opened asking about your email address and password, beneath that you will find a link “can access to your account”.
- After clicking on that enter the email address in the Microsoft account field which you want to access then fill the captcha code and hit the next button.

- If you choose a text option, a message will be sent to your number and it helps to access your Hotmail account which you want to get back. Type the last 4 digits of your phone number to use it.
- If you select an email option then a password reset link will be sent, you have to put the full email address in order to use this method.
- Another option is to use the authentication application to reset the password if you have enabled it earlier.
- Finally, if you are unable to access any of the methods then you can go with an option “I don’t have any of these”
- Apart from the above methods “answering the security question” is also there but this method is quite difficult to follow because you have to fill the exact information asked by the Hotmail. Because it is really tough to recall the old details so this method does not guarantee you to get the password for your Hotmail account.
