Recover Hotmail Account Password
Have you stuck again? Failed to login to your account? Do not worry, we are going to be discussing how to recover a lost password on Outlook. Now it’s really easy to forget your password, and even if you’ve written them down somewhere you could still lose it. But luckily, every online system comes with a recovery mechanism that can be used to either recover or reset your password.
You will need to have your phone available for this method to work as you will receive a code from Microsoft to check if it is your Hotmail account. You will receive this message on your registered number that you have associated with your Microsoft Account.
So let’s go ahead, and do that for Outlook/Hotmail. Open up your browser and go to outlook.live.com or Hotmail.com and then try to sign in and click on I forgot the password for this account.

Now on to the first step of recovering your password, click on this area that says forgot my password, click it and check on this radio button that says I forgot my password and click on next now. You will see a captcha/code, this is for security purposes whatever you see in this box just type in down below, and if it doesn’t seem clear to you that you can always choose a new code by clicking this button new.
So, if you are done with this security hurdle then click on next, and hopefully, now you’ve recognized your number. Click on the text and provide the last four digits of your registered phone number and hit this send code button now you should receive a message from Microsoft which are with your code. Open up your inbox on your phone and type in the code that you received to the login screen. For instance, if we received 252352 on text message then we’ll write the same on the password recovery screen. Hit next.
