Microsoft implemented new advanced security safeguards in new Windows Live Hotmail. Now you can enable HTTPs data encryption (SSL) to enhance the security of your entire Hotmail that helps to protect your account from hijackers while working on public computers or unsecure wireless connections.
- To enable HTTPs for Hotmail, go to https://account.live.com/ManageSSL and sign-in your Windows Live account.
- Now select Use HTTPS automatically and click on Save to commit changes.
Once HTTPs is enabled, all of your future connections to Hotmail will be delivered over SSL including Hotmail inbox, calendar and contacts.
If you only need a temporary HTTPS connection, enter “https” in front of the web address instead of “http”.
