Creating a Hotmail account will bring you a lot of benefits, since the company Microsoft has put a lot of work on security in the login processes. The most important measure is the possibility of introducing verification in two stages. This is an extra step to the main login process where we place the access password.
The two-step verification process requires the user to enter their registered phone number and also a secondary email address. It is not necessary to have a new Hotmail account to access this security option, if you have an existing Hotmail account, you can configure it logged in to it and enter account configuration.

From there we can activate the process of verification in two steps, although the security is superior many users complain about receiving the code in a message on their mobile phone or their alternate email address, it takes longer. In my opinion it does not take more than a minute and it is not a long time knowing that it is a security measure that will give us more privacy and prevents hacking in our account of Hotmail.
In spite of all the security options offered by Microsoft, it is important to note that the Hotmail login password must have at least one character in the uppercase, lowercase, numbers and signs to decrease further the chances of an attack on your email account electronic.
After activating the security option, the Hotmail login will be much more agile and secure, so you should not enter the password, you will receive a code on your mobile phone every time you want to enter your email account. And we complete the beginning of session with entering the code that requests us, in this way it is not necessary to remember the main password. It is a very secure way, as only your registered mobile phone will receive the verification code.
It is also important to note that several years ago the company that owns Hotmail, changed its domain to the name of all its email services outlook.comm without leaving aside the users of hotmail.com and still allowing to obtain registration with the termination @hotmail .com. So if you enter your web browser the address www.hotmail.com will redirect you to www.outlook.com, which has not only changed the name but improved in many respects as its minimalist image, is much more intuitive, secure And can be synchronized with our mobile phone. It also has a lot of tools to use online like word, excel, powerpoint, etc, cloud storage with One Drive, Calendar, contact management, among others.
