Security Features

Outlook.com has taken the protection of their users accounts very seriously. Since the great hack of 1999, Microsoft has devised ways of ensuring that does not happen again. They have introduced the 2 step verification process that allows you to add extra protection to your account.

Every time you log in from a different computer and have activated the 2 step verification, you will be required to enter the code.
