We just carried a post on how to make your Hotmail account more secured by ensuring that your Hotmail Password gets expired after every 72 hours. There is yet another way to make your Homail account still more secure by ensuring to use encrypted SSL login to your Hotmail account. Google has introduced this early in its GMail last year.
You have to click the link “Use Enhanced Security (SSL)” at the bottom to use this feature. Based upon your cookie settings, this option will be stored, and the next time when you login, this feature will be automatically selected.
You can turn it off any time, by clicking “Turn Off Enhanced Security (SSL)” option, if you think that it is slowing down your browser speed. But I strongly recommend you to use this feature to protect your Hotmail Login.
