Microsoft 365 - What browsers can I use to access my account?

For the best security and functionality, keep your web browser up to date. All modern browsers should update automatically, but please make sure your browser has auto-updates enabled. Microsoft Edge will get updates through Windows Update; it's important that you install those updates as they become available. For the smoothest user experience in Office 365, it is recommended to use the following web browsers: Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or Apple Safari. Microsoft's list of absolute minimum browser requirements can be found here.

To log into your Microsoft 365 account via a web browser, go to Outlook on the web.

  1. Edge - Recommended using latest "release".

  2. Firefox and Chrome - Recommended using latest "release".

  3. Safari - Recommended using latest release.
