Are you interested in getting your very own Hotmail account? If so, this quick guide will show you exactly how to make it happen. We’re here to guide you through the whole process, so that it’s easy for you to understand.
Step One – Visit the Official Hotmail Website
Link – https://signup.live.com/
Hotmail is part of the Microsoft suite of services and it’s free to use. Just visit the link we’ve posted above in order to create your own account. If you already have a Microsoft account for other purposes, such as playing video games or buying software, this isn’t the right page to visit. Instead, you’ll need to visit the sign in page, where you’ll add your valid ID and then access Hotmail services.
If you don’t have that type of account, let’s proceed to Step Two.
Step Two – Fill Out the Required Fields
During Step Two, you’ll need to fill out all of the required fields on the Create Account page. This includes the usual personal information, such as name, address, birthdate and so on. At this stage, you’ll also need to decide on a password and you’ll need to enter that new password twice. We recommend writing down the password on a piece of paper, as well as saving it to a digital file. Make sure that you have virus and malware protection in order to ensure that hackers can’t access your new password. Better safe than sorry.
Step Three – Submit Your Account Details
Once you’ve filled out all of the fields, go to the next step, which is submitting the information. You’ll see a button that says, “create account” at the bottom of the page. Be sure to hit it when you’re done. Before you hit that button, make sure that you’ve checked the box right above it, which indicates that you’re willing to receive information from the company about promotional offers and so forth.
Also, fill out the Captcha, which proves that you’re not a robot. After you do so, hit the “create account” button. If you’ve missed any mandatory fields, the system will not let you process your account. The fields that you missed will be indicated with a red asterix, so it will be easy to find any problems and fix them.
Step Four – Enjoy Your New Inbox
Once you’ve created your new account, you’ll be taken to your Inbox automatically and you may configure it as you wish (use Settings to create the ideal space for digital mail) and use it immediately.
