I have a newish W8 laptop and I see that it will log me onto my Hotmail account automatically and I can see any new mail in the app on the Start screen. As I use Hotmail mainly for vouchers and very little personal stuff, this is quite useful. It struck me though that this is permanently live and presents quite a security risk if the laptop is stolen. I have a power on password and a separate one for my W8 user account which isn't my Windows Mail password, so there are two levels of security. Is there a way of logging out of this system once I've seen if there are any new emails?
How easy to crack are the two passwords I have on the laptop?
