Check the last time someone accessed your Hotmail account

Check last Windows Live Hotmail sign in on your computer Whenever you sign in to Hotmail from a shared computer, you run the risk of having others accidentally accessing your Hotmail account, and reading your emails. If you always manually sign out of Hotmail and confirm your logout status, this is unlikely to occur; if you use the Hotmail automatic login option, it will very possibly happen, since anyone typing "www.hotmail.com" or "www.live.com" in the web browser's address bar will end up inside your inbox (or on the Windows Live Home page for your profile) - otherwise, as we'll explain below, it is harder to determine whether your email account or someone else's was accessed in the meantime. But you can quite easily check the last time someone accessed your Hotmail account with a simple trick that works when you have opted to use the automatic login option (the "Keep me signed in" checkbox).

Check last Hotmail sign in for your email account

Here are a couple of scenarios, and the steps to follow to check the last time your Hotmail account was accessed on that particular computer:

While you cannot get an actual record of Hotmail login history, since this information is hidden for your own privacy, knowing who uses your computer will help you determine what the likely scenario was!
