Changing your Hotmail password is the same as changing your Microsoft account password to help keep your Hotmail account information private.
Usually when you sign up for Hotmail you have created yourself a new password, but changing the Hotmail password regularly will give you a greater security.
Change Hotmail Account Password
Step 1: Login to Hotmail.
Click your profile image in the upper-right corner of the inbox. Then click “View account“.
Step 2: You will be redirected to your new browser tab. Here, you click “Change password“.
Step 3: Verify your account
You may be asked to verify your account. Microsoft will send a code to your backup email address or your phone number. If you don’t have access to your backup email address or phone number, select “I don’t have any of these“. And click “Next“.
Step 4: Enter in your current password, and then enter a new password
The first, you enter old your password, and the second two are for your new password. You will need to enter the new password twice in order to confirm it. Click the “Next” button.
