How to change password at Microsoft

Your Outlook.com password is the same as your Microsoft account password.

  1. Microsoft account security ‘What’s gone and password security ‘ to select.

  2. As a security measure, you may be asked to verify your identity with a security code. Decide if you want to get the security code by email or by phone. You will be asked to verify your e-mail address or the last four digits of your phone number; then select Send code . Enter the code you received and select Submit .

    Tip:  If you can’t get the code by email or phone, you can enter an email address you tried to recover. Go to the Recover your account page and follow the prompts.

  3. Enter your current password, enter your new password and select Save .
