Hello,

My hotmail account was hacked earlier this week and now has been blocked. I cannot get into the account through the "back-up" email address as that account no longer exists. In addition, when I try to get a single-use login code sent to my phone, a text never arrives. I really would like to regain access to the account to, at the very least get my contacts information and retrieve a few valuable emails. Please let me know if there is anyway I can regain access to the account. ~ KIM

There are hundreds if not thousands of accounts being blocked because they were hacked and/or used for spamming.Unfortunately Hotmail is not secured and one should never save data on Hotmail servers without backing it up.

Please follow the procedure given in the following tip and recover your account:
