Sometimes changing passwords is important. But some people are always forgetting their password. Here’s how to recover Outlook password on Android, iPhone, Mac, & Windows 10.

Getting locked out of your Outlook email account is a nightmare, especially if you don’t remember your password. Instead of creating a new Outlook email, there is a way to recover your Outlook password through the manual recovery method.

Outlook is tied to your Microsoft account. This means, changing your Outlook password means changing your Microsoft account password. It will apply to all Microsoft products you’re logged in to. But don’t worry, login is the easy part. The most important thing is the recovery part.

Can You Change Your Outlook Password without Phone Number/Email?

Unfortunately, there’s no way you can change your Outlook password without remembering your password, losing access to your phone number or email.

However, Outlook provides a manual review which you can do by clicking I don’t have any of these while doing the first method to recover your password. Then follow the instruction.

Another alternative is by contacting your email provider. Most email service provides a way to recover your account if you lost access to it.

Is There Any Software Can Be Used to Recover/Change Outlook Password?

There is actually. But it doesn’t do much.

There are apps like the Kernel Outlook Password Recovery tool that can recover your Outlook PST file password. But I’m not sure it can recover your Outlook email account.


Surely, there is a way to recover or change your Outlook password. Losing access to your email is not something people want to cope with. That’s why there are password manager apps that can save your passwords so you don’t have to remember them.
