What Is the Way to Reset a Hotmail Password If the Secret Answer Is Forgotten?

The best way to reset a Hotmail or Live.com password without the secret answer is to go to the account and have a code sent to the account carrier's phone or request a reset link via an alternative email account. Once the reset link has been sent or the code has been sent to the phone, simply enter it into the space provided and regain access to the account.

An alternate way to regain access to a Hotmail account is through an account recovery request. The owner of the account will have to validate the account and then a reset link will be sent to an alternative email.
