How to Sign In and Change a Password in Hotmail

Changing your email password is essential to account security. This is especially true if you access email often on public computers. You don’t want someone finding out your email information and getting a hold of your personal information and all of your email contacts’ personal information. You should change your password as often as you feel the need. If you access email in public areas, you should change it more often.
