Thomas wants to change his secondary Hotmail address

Thomas sat down in front of his computer. He wanted to check some of his email addresses, and it all went smoothly until he discovered that one of his addresses doesn’t work anymore. The entire website has been deleted, and the owners say it will never again work. That is quite a disaster, especially considering how Thomas is using this as a “security” email for several activities, including his Hotmail account.

Thomas is wondering what he should do. Since has can no longer access his secondary email, he cannot change the password of his Hotmail account, and he isn’t really able to make any serious changes.

What does Thomas do to change his secondary Hotmail address?

Thomas visits Hotmail.com and logs into his email account. Then he clicks his own image and goes to “View Account”. He is then sent on to a Microsoft website where he can watch and edit information related to his account.

He now presses “Update Security Info.”

There he has to add his login credentials again. After this, he is able to decide if he wants to add a new Secondary email or if he wants to add a mobile phone number as his back up. Here he is able to change his secondary email address, even if he cannot open and access his current secondary email address.

As Thomas finishes the process, he is told that it will take one month for this process to happen. That is to make sure that nobody can abuse it to gain access to someone else’s email address. He is told about the change in a new email, and he gets a warning the next time he logs onto Hotmail.

Now all Thomas has to do is wait for one month, and his Hotmail account will be registered with a new secondary email address.

Thomas wants to watch Hulu abroad

Thomas has a valid Hulu subscription, but he cannot watch it during his summer holiday in France. Now he looks for a way to watch Hulu overseas.

Thomas has spent his last days in Nice in France. He has been swimming in the sea, eating delicious food, and spent some hours shopping. He is incredibly tired, but suddenly it comes to his mind, that a new episode of The Handmaid’s Tale has been released on Hulu. He opens up his laptop, connects to the WiFi connection available in the hotel, and visits hulu.com.

Thomas is unable to watch Hulu in Europe – what’s wrong?

Thomas was really hyped up about the new episode, and now he is sad and sorry. He isn’t the kind of guy who takes a no for an answer, so he starts looking for a solution. Is there a way in which Thomas can make the Hulu website believe that he is located in the USA?

Thomas cracks the Hulu from abroad code

Thomas has heard about VPN providers and IP addresses before, and at first he thought getting an American IP address would solve all his trouble. After all, if Hulu finds out that Thomas has an IP address in the United States, then it should work, shouldn’t it? Well, it doesn’t! He reads about how lots of VPN providers are blocked by Hulu, and only a few are still working. But, which are the ones working?

Thomas has looked around here and thre, and in the end he finds an article which says that ExpressVPN is a VPN provider that has been working constantly for the last years with Hulu. Thomas decides to give it a try. He visits the ExpressVPN website, signs up and downloads the ExpressVPN application. He is very relieved to see that they have a 30-day full refund policy, as he can ask for his money back if it doesn’t work.

The entire process only took a few minutes, and now Thomas connects to a server in the USA with ExpressVPN. He decides to restart his browser after making the VPN connection, and now he visits hulu.com again. He is nervous, because he really wants it to work. But, he has heard of scams and companies trying to steal his money, so he is not entirely sure about whether or not he can trust ExpressVPN.

It worked – Thomas can watch Hulu again, even though he is abroad.

Thomas is happy, and he is to busy watching the episode, so he doesn’t have much time to complete this article. But, he hopes the way he solved this problem will help you solve the same problem as well, no matter where you might be in the world.
