Do you want to create a new Hotmail account?

Do you already have a Hotmail account and want to create a second account?

  • First, if you already have an account and are logged in, click the Sign Out link in the top right of your Hotmail screen.

In 2015 to create a new Hotmail or account, first make sure you're logged out of any existing accounts, then use the "Sign up now" link on the home page:
