How do I unsubscribe from all emails

Unsubscribe from email

Outlook no longer allows you to sign out of your account or to be prompted for a password to sign in. So if you share your computer with others, you may want to prevent them from accessing your email account while they are using your computer.

To protect your privacy, make sure that other users have to log into your computer with their own account. In this way, on the one hand, you receive your own personalization and, on the other hand, you are prevented from accessing your Outlook e-mails. For information on creating a user account for each user of your computer, see "Creating a User Account" for Windows 7, Windows 8 / 8.1, or Windows 10.

Sign out of Windows

If you're signed in to your computer and want to allow someone else to use it, or if you leave your computer unattended for a while, sign out of Windows.

  1. To do this, press CTRL + ALT + DELETE.

  2. click on Sign out.

  3. When you receive a notification about unsaved changes in open programs, choose whether to save or not to save them.

  4. The computer closes the programs and logs you off. This process can take a few minutes.

After you have logged off, other users can log on to the computer with their user accounts. If these users have set up Outlook for their account on your computer, they can access their own email account, but not your account.

Important: Outlook.com, Outlook Web App, and Outlook 2013 or Outlook 2016 for Windows are not all created equal. Outlook 2013 or Outlook 2016 for Windows are programs on your local computer that you can use to access any type of email account, while Outlook.com and Outlook Web App can be used from your Internet browser. You can sign out of your email account in the browser, but if you are using Outlook 2013 or Outlook 2016 for Windows, the application information is stored in your Windows user account on your computer so that other users can access your account if they have your account when using your computer. This is why you may want to create a guest account on your computer that others can use. This way, other people cannot access your Outlook 2013 or Outlook 2016 for Windows when they are using the guest account on your computer.
