Microsoft Live login

Puppeteer and Playwright also allow us to automate logging in to a Microsoft Live account.

# Steps

  1. We start at https://login.live.com
  2. We provide the username and password, injected by using environment variables
  3. We are redirected to the main account page

    Run this example as follows. Replace the username and password placeholder with your own credentials.

      TIP

      This example does not work when you have 2-factor authentication enabled, and you might trigger a recaptcha check.

      # Takeaways

      1. Use environment variables to inject secrets.
      2. Wait for the navigation as your are redirected to Microsoft.
      3. Wait for the navigation as you are redirected back to the start site.
