Nothing is working. Help! If you've tried resending the email and you are still having trouble, here are some troubleshooting tips:
  1. Are we sending it to the wrong email address? Double check your Account settings to make sure your email is entered accurately. See any typos? Do we have an old email on file? Make any necessary corrections and click save; we'll send another email if you've updated the address.
  2. Try changing the email address to an email address with a large domain (Gmail, Yahoo, etc.). We tend to have more success delivering emails to those types of domains.
  3. Still need help? Contact us here.
I would suggest keep hitting the button that says 'I didn't get the email'.

Be aware of hackers


I want to alert you all about hackers ready to hack email ids . Daily many email ids are hacked . Daily . In the same way , someone from New York hacked my Gmail account . Be aware of hackers .
To prevent hacking of your account , use the followig tips :

1. Insert your email id only in trusted website
This is to prevent hackers know your email id . It can be that the website in which you are entering your email id belongs to a hacker . If it is so , then your account password would be easily hacked . It is not that only Gmail account can be hacked . Anyone can very easily hack the password of any account , no matter it is a Gmail account or Yahoo or Hotmail or any other account . So it would be better and safe to enter your email id only on trusted websites .

2. Change your password at regular period of time
Changing the password can sometimes prevent your account from getting hacked . If a person anyhow gets your password and at that same time you can it , then the hacker would be unable to open your account . It can only happen only with some people .

3. Never neglect warnings and alerts
On Gmail , if a person with a different IP address logges in to your acount , then it shows a warning message on the empty space on the top . If any such warning message is shown , then instead of neglecting it , prform the following steps :
1. Click on the "Show info" link near the message .
2. Note down the IP address of the hacker and change the password or delete the account immediately . I reccommend you to delete the account .

4. Delete unneeded email account
If you have email accounts more than needed then delete those accounts . To see those steps , read my next tip on FixYa.com

If your account has been logged in by this IP address , then mail me to get information about it :
8.22.161.217

You can also get information about any IP address on Arin WHOIS Database Search website :

My already have an account as flyinglivingdead I haven't been able to use my yahoo account in years still trying to figuir out hackers an the fact just got first laptop my password info don't work


If you haven't accessed the account "in years", then most likely all your profile information is gone. I would consider that account as lost.

Try to create a new Yahoo account with the email name you had before. If the account still exists, you will get an error message from Yahoo, saying that name is already taken. If years have passed, then another owner likely has that address with their own password.

I urge everyone to have at least two email accounts - each on different providers. When setting up the account profile, be sure to list the other email account as your alternate. This is so the management of your email service can send you a temporary password to the alternate email address.

Help yahoo com


Not sure we can help you with that one. Hackers maybe but that's not what we do here. Go to your email account go to login screen and there will be a box trhat says forgot password. Have them send you another password to your account at a different email address that you can acces. This is a single use password that yahoo will send you so you will get to log into your account and then change the password. Don't change the password and you will have to do this all over again.

recovery by email:
https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/183726
Recovery email address You don't have to provide a recovery email address, but we strongly encourage you to. Once you've started using Google as a signed-in user, we'll use your recovery email address to communicate with you under the following circumstances:
  • We need to confirm your username after you create an address
  • You can't sign in to Google
  • You've forgotten your password
  • You're about to run out of storage space
  • We need to alert you to any unusual activity involving your address
If you use Gmail, you may have added a recovery email address to your account when you first signed up. If you don't use Gmail, your password recovery address is the email address you used to sign up for your account (for example:myusername@yahoo.com)
To change or add a recovery address:
  1. Go to your Google Account Settings page.
  2. Scroll down to the "Signing in" box.
  3. Click Recovery email.
  4. Add your recovery email address.
  5. Click Done.
Your recovery address should be an email address that you use regularly.


recovery by phone:
https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/183728

Having a mobile phone number on your account is one of the easiest and most reliable ways to help keep your account safe and ensure that you can get back into your account if your account is taken over or you forget your password. Your mobile phone is a more secure identification method than your recovery email address or a security question because, unlike the other two, you have physical possession of your mobile phone.
Hackers target accounts without phones because they're easier targets. Add a phone and join hundreds of millions of other Google users who have helped stop hackers in their tracks.

To add a recovery phone number to your account:

  1. Go to your Google Account Settings page
  2. In the Personal info section, click Phone.
  3. In the Recovery phone section, click to add a recovery phone number if you don't have one yet.

Ways we will use your mobile phone number

We'll only use your mobile phone number to ensure the security of your account. Here are some ways we'll use it:
  • To challenge people when they try to take ownership of your account
  • To send you a verification code so you can get into your account if you ever lose access
  • To provide an alternate way for you to verify that you own an account
  • To help prevent people from getting into your account by guessing the answer to your security question
  • Optional: To alert you to possible threats to your account's security (for example, when your password is changed)

Ways we won't use your mobile phone number

Unless you make a specific request, we won't use your mobile phone number for anything other than protecting your account. For example, unless you tell us to, we'll never:
  • Sell your phone number to other companies or organizations
  • Call you for marketing purposes
  • Publish your phone number online

What type of phone you should use

You should use a mobile phone number so that you always have access to it. It's important that you can receive security alerts as soon as possible so that you can help keep your account safe.

I am look to unlock my gmail password but keeps on declining


Gmail, Google's email service, provides you with a free, online email address.
Your Gmail account is vulnerable to hackers if you don't take adequate steps to protect it.

Create a strong password that contains a mix of numbers and letters.
Use both upper and lowercase, and consider adding symbols.

Change your account's settings from HTTP to HTTPS.
Even if you take the necessary precautions, someone may still hack your account.

By checking various Gmail settings, you can determine if someone has hacked your account.
Sign in to your Gmail account.

If your password doesn't work, someone has compromised your account.
If your login works, scroll to the bottom of the Gmail screen until you find the Last Account Activity line.

Click "Details."
This opens a new window with all your recent account activity.

Check the Location box for any activity outside your area or from a strange IP address.
This is a sign that someone hacked your Gmail.

Click "Sent Mail" and look for any strange messages sent from your address.
If you find messages there that you didn't send, someone may have hacked your account.

Click the gear-shaped button on the top right side of the Gmail screen.
Choose "Mail Settings" from the drop-down list.

Check the Signature box to make sure no one changed it.
Hackers sometimes place links to malicious websites in this area.

If you send an email to someone and he unknowingly clicks one of these links, it can infect his computer.

Check the Vacation Responder section for a similar reason. Make sure no one has changed it or placed outgoing links.

Click the "Accounts and Import" tab at the top of the Settings page.
Click "Change Password Recovery Options" in the Change Account Settings section.

Enter your password if Gmail prompts you.
Check the Email section to make sure there are no strange addresses listed as a recovery email address.

If a hacker places one of his email addresses in this section, he can recover your password even after you've changed it.

While on this page, check your security questions to make sure no one changed them.
Close the "Recovering Your Password" page and return to your Gmail Settings page.

Check the "Grant Access to Your Account" section.
Unless you've added an account here, it should be empty.

If someone hacked your Gmail, you may find that he has added himself to your account in this section.
This means he can read your email and send messages from your address.

Click the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" tab.
Check the Forwarding section to make sure no one changed it.

Check the POP Download section and the IMAP Access section.
Unless you enabled them in the past, POP and IMAP should be disabled.

Hackers use these options to gain access to your messages.
Click "Save Changes" if you altered any settings.
