    Windows Live Hotmail is asking for my phone number, alternate e-mail and secret question just in case I loose my password. This page shows up after I put in my e-mail and password. Is this legitimate or some phishing scam? I've been going around it for the past couple of weeks by re pressing on my book marker for Hotmail.

    I had gotton that for 8 weeks till I found out how to stop it.

    It's legitimate

    So just answer two of them like these two.
    * Alternate email address
    * Secret question

    This is the page you should of seen right after login. With your email address in the top right.
