    Please help me my outlook emails have been hacked so many times I don't know what to do. I have changed my password every time and they continue to hack me. Is there anything to do to stop the hacking and getting blocked so I can use my email again?

    Hi Connie,

    Turn on 2 step login verification - How to turn on 2 step authentication (login verification) in Hotmail

    That will prevent logins from others. After turning that on, please change your password one more time. Also, run a security scan on your computer with malwarebytes.

    You'll also need to go through the rest of your settings and look for message rules, email forwards, and any other settings that don't make sense and could be used to help someone else get back into your account.

    If they every time hack you, maybe you should scan your pc for malware or any of that stuff. Also check if your wifi is hacked. Change the password of your router and set WPS lock on.
