How to create an account in hotmail?
The first thing we must do is create a Windows Live ID account. To do so we just have to enter this page.
In her they will ask you for all your personal data:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Date of birth
In the next point he asks you how do you want to start your session. That will be your hotmail email and it is the same one you will use as the login for your Windows Live account, so you have to click on the button «Or get a new email address».
Once you click there, a menu is displayed that lets you choose the name of your user (as long as it does not already exist) and the domain where you want to create it. At this point you can select to create an account at @ outlook.es, @ outlook.com, @ hotmail.es, @ hotmail.com or @ live.com
Select the type of domain that you like the most. Formerly it could only be had in hotmail but now you can have it in Outlook or Live and it works exactly the same.
Fields to recover your account
Once this is done, it only remains to complete the steps that serve to recover your account in case of any problem (lost password, account hacking, etc). It is very simple since you only have to indicate:
- your mobile phone number
- a alternate email address. Here you can use another account of yours in gmail, yahoo.es or for example the email account of the university or work
- optionally you can also put a security question. Although it is undoubtedly the least safe option since that answer may be known by many people.
To finish with the data, you only have to fill in your country of residence and your postal code.
Check that you are not a robot
Microsoft - like many other companies - needs to verify that the person signing up for Windows Live is real and it is not a robot that registers automatically. This is why he usually uses a slightly distorted character system that asks you to repeat. In this way, only human beings are able to recognize those characters and rewrite them correctly again.
Once you have arrived here, you just have to accept all the legal clauses and click on the I accept button and you already have your new hotmail account.
What has been simple?
