Losing your Hotmail password can be frustrating, especially if you don’t have access to the phone number associated with your account. This guide will explain different methods to help you recover your Hotmail password without a phone number.
Hotmail (Outlook) offers various recovery options, such as email verification, security questions, and an account recovery form. Choose the option that doesn’t require a phone number for verification.
How to Reset your Hotmail account password without a Phone number
Here’s a guide to recovering your Hotmail account even if you can’t receive verification codes via phone:
Method 1: Using a Backup Email Address
If you select email verification, Hotmail will send a recovery code to the alternate email address associated with the account. Access your alternate email inbox, locate the recovery code, and enter it on the Hotmail password recovery page.
- Go to the password reset page: Visit https://account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx and enter your Hotmail email address.
- Choose “I can’t use my phone” instead of entering a code.
- Select “I have a recovery email address” and enter the recovery email address associated with your Hotmail account.
- Check your backup email for a message from Microsoft with a security code.
- Enter the security code on the password reset page and create a new password.
Method 2: Using the Account Recovery Form
If you can’t access the recovery email address, you can fill out the Microsoft Account Recovery Form.
- Open https://account.live.com/acsr.
- Provide as much information as possible about your account, including past passwords, recent contact information, and the dates you created and last accessed the account.
- Be specific and accurate with your answers. The more details you provide, the higher the chance of Microsoft verifying your identity and granting you access.
- Microsoft may take a few days to review your request, so be patient and check your email for updates.
By following these steps, you can regain access to your Hotmail account even without a phone number. Remember to keep your account recovery information up-to-date to prevent future issues.
