How to login to Office 365
Once you have your Microsoft Office 365 account as a user or administrator, you can login at https://login.microsoftonline.com.
If you use the account that has been provided by your company on your office computer you would have a link to the portal, it’s usually put on your desktop or in the start menu. The link would be called Microsoft Office 365 Portal.
You have to log in with the details provided to you by the company, that should resemble:
YourName@YourCompanyName.onmicrosoft.com or YourName@YourCompanyDomain.com
When you are signing in with your details, you can check two boxes:
- Remember me
- Keep me signed in
When you check the first options, it means that the portal will remember your username, so you don’t have to type it in every time you come back. The second one will remember your password, that could be handy but might also cause a conflict when your password expires and it needs to be changed.
If you log in for the first time you are going to see a screen like this:
