Microsoft Looks at Tighter Outlook Security

Microsoft is looking to beef up security for Outlook.com, without the need for a two-step method. Microsoft wants to give Outlook.com, the web-mail service formerly known as Hotmail, features stronger than what Google provides for its Gmail clients. Google usually requires the typical username and password login credentials. But users can also activate the two-step security method which includes a second numeric code that’s sent directly to the user’s associated smartphone. Google says the two-step verification helps protect a user’s account from unauthorised access should someone manage to obtain their password. Microsoft’s proposed single-use code would also be sent to the user’s associated smartphone via texting, but in place of the user’s password. Although Microsoft is yet to confirm this as its preferred method, the move could be popular for those who export Lotus Notes to Outlook or use the service in other ways where security is a high priority.
