This is the common question asked in the internet every day. As there are many email service providers in the internet that are providing as much free service as Hotmail and sometimes even more, then why we should go for Hotmail?
The simple answer is security.
As you can see, Hotmail security is the tightest among all the email service provides in the internet. You can take the example of resetting the password.
While forgetting your password in Gmail or any other email, you can change the password even if you don’t have a mobile number, alternative email address or anything. Which means, if someone is really into your personal life and wants to hack your account, then he can easily do it in few minutes. However, Gmail will send an alert if someone login to your account from new device but I guess that would be late enough.
But here in Hotmail, if you forgot the password you need to have your mobile number or alternative email address or if not that then you must have a recovery security code that can be used only once. So, if you don’t have any of these then you can never access your Hotmail account again.
Hence, from this example you can see that security of outlook is much tighter that compared to that of Gmail. So, there’s a less chance of getting your account hacked in Hotmail.
Some users might think that I don’t have necessary emails in my account so I don’t care if my account gets hacked or not. But remember, it is one email for all. Your single email account is linked with other services like Cloud storage, Contacts, Payment Info etc.
Therefore, email security is the foremost thing to be considered before choosing the best email service for you.
