      • Simple mechanism to unblock account when 'unusual activity' detected..

        Often my account is blocked - either a message saying it's the wrong password...
        I think it's related to a safety feature to proctect my account from 'unusual activity', (misleading error message) however on at least four occasions this holiday, as I move around North America, I've been prevented from using my account... no email to tell me why, no way to 'unlock' it - if I sign in on a browser, sometimes there's an email 'unusual activity on your account' and I'm able to sign in to Outlook and ratify the recent activity...

              • Safe Senders

                Why is there not an option to add a sender to your Safe Sender list in the list where you can report a pfishing scam or flag or pin or ignore or create rule or my friends been hacked. It doesn't make sense that you have to go to settings, then options, and then down to the junk mail settings in order to add your friend to your Safe Senders list. Please make this easier by adding a link with all the other links.

                  • I wanted to setup simple password for my outlook account of only number combinations.

                    I wanted to setup simple password for my outlook account of only number combinations like gmail.com I am told that its not possible.

                    users must be given option to add simple password.

                    • Button to Report Phishing Attempts

                      You should make a "Report Phishing" button, so when we see a phishing attempt, we can report it to you and you can use that data to help protect us from future phishing emails.

                        • Track logins

                          Hi.

                          I would like a feature to track when I last logged into my inbox and of possible log the location and device name.

                          I have had to change my password because of a supposed rouge login but cannot find out if it is genuine fraud or confusion through using multiple devices.

                          Thanks.

The range of products and services surpasses the expectations of its consumers. However, there are more interesting ideas provided by consumers that could help improve the products and services.

                            In today's highly connected and internet-heavy dependent world, many businesses and corporations rely on the use of cloud computing.

                            • Email Recovery

                              Trying to recover my email account has been nothing but a nightmare! It should not be this difficult to get back into my account. If someone spent the time contacting customer support, it should be easier to get it activated immediately. It has been almost a week that I have been able to use it because you can't even reset from a phone. Having to get online via a computer is a horrible idea. By the time I could do that it was 6 days and then it took me almost 2 hours trying to recover it and it still…

                                    • support Dark Internet Mail Environment (DIME) - end to end encryption.

                                      DIME provides multiple modes of security (Trustful, Cautious, & Paranoid) and is radically different from any other encrypted platform, solving security problems others neglect. DIME is the only automated, federated, encryption standard designed to work with different service providers while minimizing the leakage of metadata without a centralized authority.

                                          My feedback is to make Hotmail more secure from hackers, rather than the person whose account it actually is
