Hotmail Password Recovery

Hotmail is a free (i.e. advertiser supported) web based e-mail system that the Microsoft Corporation provides.

Hotmail Password Recovery

Hotmail password recovery methods include:

  • Resetting the Hotmail password online
  • Recovering the stored Hotmail password from the web browser

Resetting the Hotmail Password Online

The easiest way to recover a Hotmail password is to go to the MSN Reset Password page.

To use the MSN Password Reset page to recover a Hotmail password, the user must know four pieces of data:

  • E-mail address
  • Country/Region
  • State
  • Zip Code

Recover a Hotmail Password from the Web Browser

Most Hotmail users allow their web browsers to store their Hotmail password. Each web browser stores the Hotmail password in a different manner.

Methods for recovering these stored passwords differ for each web browser.

    my account on Hotmail blocked. when am changing my pass word some thing happened and lost my pass tried many times to recover it, but no way. please i need help. if you can please send it to my alternative E-mail as the same on Hotmail. thanks for your help.

    • memenode

      You’re asking for the impossible. To recover your password you need a secret answer to your security question, which only you should know, or you need to talk to hotmail customer support which others can’t do for you.

      Most of this thread is ridiculous. Someone actually asked for his secret answer to be sent to him. I seriously don’t know what to say to that …

      Nobody can reset your password except you and in some cases Hotmail customer support. Asking for it here is a waste of everyone’s time.

    K well i have a acc on wow worth 460 dolars hacked and gf wont give me email pass word so i need you guys to hacker PLEASREPELASE


    في الحقيقة أنا أيضا أعاني من نفس المشكلة , حيث أنني لا أذكرحتى السؤال السري , لأنني ببساطة شديدة جديد في عالم PC و NET , حاولت البحث والتحري قدر استطاعتي وضعف معلوماتي أن أصل إلى حل منقذ , كان الباب مغلقا أمامي , في أخر المطاف جلست أفكر في حلول أخر مثل : لمذا لا تهتم شركة مايكروسوفت بحل ربما يرضي الطرفين , مثل أن تفرض رسوما على ذالك , لا تزيد عن 10 دولارات فقط , عن طريق الإيميل الجديد , لكي تسترد الإيميل الذي نسيت رقمه السري , إنه مكسب كبير ودخل جيد , والسعر مناسب جدا , عندما جلست أفكر مليا  , إذا بنا رجل بيتا , هل يبنيه بدون أبواب أو نوافذ , تخيل أنت معي هذا الموقف , في النهاية عندي من الأفكار ربما تجعل تضحك وتسخر , على العموم شكرا لكم على هذا الموقع الجميل , وأسف على هذه الإطالة …( ^_^)

    please , I request to recover my password , I was searching in slideshare website and was forget my user name and paasword for that webside , I treid many times but i couldn’t , finally to solve the problem the website displays my E-mail and said enter password . I think it is needed the password  for such website but i did not think it is needed my E-mail paasword.
    finally they said go to your E-mail inorder to check that i am the owner of this E-mail. when i treid to access my E-mail account , I have seen it was blocked and said to me someone treid to use your E-mail account without not knowing , and said also we can help you so change your password , I treid to change i couldn’t. Now I want to calirify that me i was the one who have done the mistake in the searching. 
     Now I am requesting to unblock my account and allow me to use my previous password, if there still a doubtfull , even i am ready to change paasword .

          Best Regards

      Hi Amir,
      If your mail Id is hacked, then instead of recovering it you should get your password changed.

  • Martin Brobbey

    I forgot my password. I try to reset my password, but though I have been taken through the process of customer support to reset it. It takes me to another page to confirm that it is me trying to set the password. And from there I still cannot go to my page.

    • H3llas

      Hello. We are not affiliated with hotmail therefore we can’t send your password to you. You should use steps above to reset your hotmail account. If that can not be done then you can try contacting Hotmail support at or make a new email address.
