Question about Yahoo Messenger

Loggin in to Yahoo Messenger

I changed my Yahoo email password recently and since then, I haven't been able to log in to my Yahoo Messenger. Do I need to change my password on the messenger as well? If so, whenever I try to go to sign in, it goes right back and won't allow me to even get to where I need to go to change the password. What can I do?

I discovered that when I changed my password on my Yahoo email account, I didn't change it on my messenger as well. So, I hit cancel on the messenger which allowed me to go to my username and password. From there I was able to change it and once I did, it instantly started working again.

CAN NOT GET CONNECTED TO YAHOO INSTANT MESSENGER


Good Day Katherine!

To get an access to a Yahoo Messenger Account, first you need to create a Yahoo Mail account to get a Yahoo email address or a Yahoo ID.

A Yahoo email address or Yahoo ID and its password is the one needed to access a Yahoo Messenger.

Follow these procedures:

1. Fill up first the registration form by clicking this Yahoo link: Create Your Account. 10_10_2011_2_15_56_am.jpg


Once you completed answering the form, do not forget to enter the captcha word on the small box before hitting the "Create My Account" button. Follow the online instruction. At the end it will launch the Yahoo and you will access your New Yahoo Mail Account. Check the inbox, that is what you should do. Always remember the email address that you created and your password. This is what you will be using when creating accounts to other online transaction.
(Example of an email address : katherinehollman@yahoo.com)

2. Now that you have a Yahoo email address and password, use it to log in at Yahoo Messenger.
To log in, you must first install a Yahoo Messenger program in your computer. If you don't have the program yet, you can download from the link below:
http://messenger.yahoo.com/download/ - after you save this program, run it to install in your computer.

3. Open your Yahoo Messenger. Log in using your email address and password. Then check your email inbox for verification


If you encounter a problem with the log in issue, please feel free to reply and I will assist you further.

On yahoo messenger it keeps saying i have the wrong log in credentials, and I'm sure that the ones i typed in are right. I've tried changing my password but it still isn't working..


Hi there!
You can try logging in to Yahoo's website first and see if you can log-in. If you can log-in, then it is a possible problem with Yahoo Messenger. Try reinstalling YM. If you can't log-in, then it is a problem either with your email or password.
Best Regards!

Yahoo messenger resets are attainable by the account owner. Get into the internet website of yahoo messenger with the features of loggin is a display button that has reset passwords feature functions. A click should allow for changing an old password for newer password in which instance would be emailed to the email account of your choice.

I forgot my password for mssnger, what cani do?


I am afraid the only one who can find the forgotten password back is YOURSELF, and right on your computer. If you really forgot everything related to your messenger. Then take a try of this password recovery software to recover lost password. It will help you recover forgotten login password for Chat Messengers like MSN Messenger, Windows LIVE Messenger, Google Talk etc. Good luck and regards.

Logging into Yahoo messenger is similar in a way to logging into an email account, a log in ID and a password are required.
You mention that you are trying to log into your cousin's Yahoo messenger : has your cousin autorised you to log into his/her Yahoo messenger ? If yes, then get his/her Yahoo messenger's login ID and password & then, you can log into it.

I cant open my ym account....


I suggest you to check whether your email address and password is correct or not, by logging in at the www.yahoomail.com website, If you are able to login then your account exists and the email address and password is correct.
If it shows wrong password, try forgot password.

If you are able to login to your account in website, only you cannot login in yahoo messenger, There might be some problem in yahoo messenger, I suggest you to download the recent version of yahoo messenger and try logging in, if problem persists check your internet connectivity, Sometimes we couldn't login if there is a problem in internet connection.
There may also be problem with windows firewall settings.

And also check whether the yahoo messenger is added as exception in the windows firewall or not, If not add the yahoo messenger to exception list.

MY YAHOO MESSENGER HAS BEEN LOKED.PLS HELP ME TO OPEN MY YAHOO.-


The best attempt to unlock your ID is, try to login not by yahoo messenger, but by mail of yahoo which has a same user name and password that been locked. Sometime, this step worked, but make sure after your login to yahoo mail and success, you have to change your password with new password, and then you can login to yahoo messenger with new password that you just been created.

If you try to send a complain to the contact of yahoo messenger, It will useless. Yahoo doesn’t care what happen to your if you go locked.

To protect your ID or to prevent Lock ID, you must have a strong password. I will suggest you to not chat with your primary email in yahoo messenger. Sometime yahoo makes a prohibition to some of ID. This mean your ID can be banned by yahoo and your ID never be join to yahoo messenger or yahoo email again.

To create a strong password you must use all character who listed in your keyboard. Such as uppercase, number, and symbol. You must be create password which have not less 8 character or more.

Here I give you an example a strong password: H4rP3 ^&* (with 3 space on it). To make a better password work well, you have to change your password frequently: 3 week or 3 month, depending how strong and important your password is.
