Hotmail Login: Hot Updates This April 2018
There was a time when Hotmail was in and everyone had it, especially the early webmail users. Nowadays, Hotmail is more popularly known as Outlook.com. Do you still have access to your Hotmail login credentials? If yes, then you can still use it. We’ll also show you what you can benefit from having Hotmail or Outlook.com.
Hotmail to Outlook
One of the pioneers in webmail services, Hotmail was established in 1996. It was acquired by Microsoft a year later and has been rebranded as MSN Hotmail and Windows Live Hotmail, respectively. Its latest version was released in 2011 and Outlook.com replaced it in 2013.
To be clear, your existing Hotmail account has not disappeared when Microsoft replaced it with Outlook.com. Your Hotmail can be your default email when you log on to your Windows-run PC or mobile phone.
What are the perks of having a Hotmail account on the Outlook.com platform?
- It’s easier to log in. Whether you are on mobile or PC, you can log on to your Hotmail account.
- It’s safer. Hotmail has its fair share of security issues and breaches. The Hotmail of today has been improved on to ensure no private data leaks to wrongdoers.
- It’s integrated. You can use your Hotmail account across many platforms like OneDrive, Skype and a whole suite of Windows Office products.
Indeed, Microsoft has enhanced the infrastructure of Outlook.com with safety features comparable to that of Google’s Gmail.
Upgrading to Outlook.com Using Hotmail Login
As noted above, switching from your current Hotmail email address to that of an Outlook.com is beneficial. It also means access to everything in your account – contacts, messages, signature – plus more functionalities.
To make the upgrade this April 2018, go to the Outlook sign-in page, https://outlook.live.com/owa/. Use your Hotmail login (yes, the same password will do).
It is that easy! No need for a new account, no new email address, just your Hotmail login.
