    Using Office 365 Home Premium.
    Everything was OK until yesterday. Everytime I launch Outlook it keeps prompting for my outlook.com account password.
    If I enter my password, Outlook connects to Exchange server and I can receive my e-mails.
    But when I close Outlook and re-open, it asking again for password.
    Any solutions?

    Had same problem yesterday, entered my email and password and 4 digit pass code and it was resolved. Not sure why this has happened or what changed.

    I believe there was an option to save password somewhere in the process.

    You're using two-step verification method?

    Try clearing WIndows Credential Manager with entries pertaining to Outlook/Office.
