If you own a Hotmail account and one day you just realized it is blocked, you must know that there’s no need to push the panic button because thousands of people have experienced a similar problem. And although your most natural response is to complain about it, you have to understand that there actually are several ways you can unblock it.
First of all, know that there can also be different reasons why you no longer can sign in your account. No doubt the most common cause of a blocked Hotmail account is when you entered the wrong password and in the process reached the allowable number of tries. Another reason why you can’t sign in to your Hotmail account is because someone tried to access it by using a wrong password. There likewise is a possibility that your account was suspended and you were denied access because it was used in a manner that Hotmail prohibits. Lastly, there also is a chance that someone might have hacked your account and upon logging in, effectively changed the log in details.
At this point, let’s talk about the steps to try to unblock your account. The first thing you need to do is reset your password, assuming this option is still viable. If you can recall, you were asked to answer several security questions back when you signed up for a Hotmail account. If you remember the answers to those security questions, then there’s no reason to be worried because you’ll be able to unblock your account. Once your account is unblocked, don’t forget to change or update your login details.

But if the first step won’t work for you, the next step is to reach out to the Hotmail technical support. But be sure you know the exact error message Hotmail gave you when you unsuccessfully tried to access and log in to your account. You must be ready to provide your personal information because the technical team will definitely ask for it for identity validation purposes. The verification process is very important and essential because it’s the only way to make sure it’s you who wants help and not just anyone trying to hack into your account.

The third option if the two previous ones didn’t do the job, is to request for a new password and to send it to your alternate email address. Of course, your alternate email account must also be active and accessible. But in case the alternate email you used no longer exists or is inactive, it means this method is no longer feasible.
We recognize how annoying and taxing it is to lose your Hotmail account, but remember that in most instances, it’s just a temporary setback.
