I keep getting unauthorized access to my Hotmail account and I have been able to recover it using alternate email address.

I would like to know if it's possible to know who did that?

And also if there's a way to protect my Hotmail account from having the same issue.

Each time I found all my sent messages deleted, and I found one of my messages resent to an email address that I didn't recognize.

1. Make use of a stronger password! You can use the combination of alpha numeric.

2. Sometimes we are asked to answer security question. But please do not answer it truthfully.

3. We sometimes use one password in all our internet accounts. Please do not use the same password. Change your password if you are using the same right now. But please take note all your accounts and password.

4. Lastly, reset your password often to secure your account.

Hotmail, Gmail and other email provider encountered this issue. Most email client uses http that doesn't have their own pathway for secured connection.

In this set-up, email account is vulnerable to any infiltrator. Unlike using https website, which uses stronger encryption code for protection is hard to access.

So, it is advisable to create stronger password which contains letters and numbers, some add special character to make the password protected with stronger encryption.

It should consist of at least 8 characters combined with numbers or special characters if it's allowed by your email provider.

Use answer that has lower or upper case in your security questions and answers, set your phone number as your contact number. In this case, you will be notify if the password has been change by someone else and not you.

Password infiltrators will always be there no matter what, same as thieves and robbers. You will just need to create something that can't be access easily, this ensures your email gets a better protections at any cost.
