Delete Hotmail/Outlook Account 2018

Welcome to Today I’m going to show you how to delete your Hotmail account.

And before I do, I just want to let you know it’s one of the most complicated processes of deleting an account that I have seen. I don’t know why Microsoft makes things so incredibly complicated but they do. So just bear with me and be sure to follow the instructions closely.

Okay, basically what you want to do sign in Hotmail account and go to Account Settings then you go to Close Account.

Go back to Close Account, put your password back in again, and hit OK. Now your account is still not deleted. You can believe it or not you have to leave it inactive for a period of I believe ninety (90) days.

That’s basically it, that’s how you deactivate your account. If your account has been hacked and that’s the reason why you’re doing this let me know.

Because I’m going to do more research into how these accounts get hacked. And why and how to get around that. So thanks for reading and have a nice day!
