Password consistently doesn't work after 2-3 weeks

My yahoo password after 2-3 weeks will not work anymore and I am forced to reset it. This keeps happening to me, yet my mom and dad use yahoo and this does not happen to them. The last time i reset the password, I let my mother pick the password so she can verify I am not going crazy. After about 3 weeks, I had to reset the password because it stopped working.

Help.

That is normal - your account has not been hacked!
The temporary password will reset after 2-3 weeks. What you need to do is after you login using the temporary password, go into your account settings and change it to another password you create.

This one will not reset after 2-3 weeks.

It almost sounds like your yahoo account has been hacked. My father had a yahoo mail address that got hacked and they kicked him off for sending out spam. I would contact yahoo.

    (...) The temporary password will reset after 2-3 weeks. What you need to do is actually change that password to another one you create, and that one will last as long as you need it.

I can't get into my yahoo email for the past 2 days on my laptop


Can you let us know exactly why you cannot get into your e-mail? What happens exactly to prevent you?

Does it appear to be accepting your password? I'm assuming if you sucessfully reset it, this isn't the issue.

I would suggest trying another browser and seeing if that works first of all, you can fire Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer

I can't sign in on yahoo messanger?I write down my name and password properly but it wont let me in?!


The most common reasons behind login problems are either due to a typo or a case issue. Make sure that Caps Lock is not turned on. If it is, press the Caps Lock key to turn it off. Since most passwords are case-sensitive, make sure that your password is in lower case unless you specifically use a mixed-case password.

If you are consistently being denied access when entering the same credentials, it's probably not a typo issue. In this case, you may have simply forgotten your password. Use Yahoo's "forgot password" feature to have your password sent to you. This will help ensure that you're not typing it in wrong.

Also, make sure that you're only typing in your username and not your full Yahoo email address. It does not require you to add the @yahoo.com after your username.

Hope this helps!

You would need to email yahoo themselves in order to get the password reset (if at all possible)
