Locked out of yahoo account


If you suspect that someone has hacked your Yahoo! account or if you attempt to log in your account too many times with an incorrect password, Yahoo! might lock you out of your account.

After several failed login attempts, the Yahoo! security feature locks your account for a predetermined amount of time to prevent unauthorized users from accessing your account.

Unauthorized users might use your account to send unsolicited emails or intrude on your private content and emails.

Although being locked out of your Yahoo! account can be frustrating, you can gain access to your account and change your password after the lock expires.

Wait 24 hours.
Return to the Yahoo! website and click the "Sign In" link at the top of the page.


Click "I Can't Access My Account."
Select "I Forgot My Password" or "My Password Doesn't Work" from the list of options.

Click the "Next" button to proceed.
Enter your Yahoo! ID in the "My Yahoo! ID is" field.


Enter the security code in the "Enter the Code Shown" field. Click the "Next" button.
Click "I Cannot Access Any of the Above" and click the "Next" button.
Type the answers to the security questions in the appropriate fields.

You set these security quests when you created your Yahoo! Account.
Click "Next."


Enter a new password in the field and verify the password by retyping it in the field.
Click the "Next" button and Yahoo! resets your password.

The new password is effective immediately, allowing you to sign in your Yahoo! account.

Too many attempts to unlock
Which email account ?
Unlocking your Hotmail account after it has been locked due to too many failed log in attempts can be done using Microsoft's automated password reset system.

The feature has been put in place to protect users from crackers and scammers who would then use the account to steal your personal information and that of your contacts'.

It's a good idea to regularly cycle your passwords to increase the security of your correspondence.

Navigate to account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx.
Select "I forgot my password."


Click "Reset my password."
Enter your Hotmail email address and the letters in the displayed picture.


Click "Next." A new password will now be emailed to the alternate email account you've listed in your profile.

You can use this password to log into your now-unlocked Hotmail account.

Can't access my YAHOO email, even though connected to INTERNET !!!


Many times, you can recover a hacked or compromised Yahoo! account after using on-site password-recovery tools.
The process can take a few minutes to complete, but once you are finished you'll be back in your account.
If the password-recovery method does not work, then you can always contact the security group at Yahoo! Inc. via email.
Of course, you'll need access to a secondary email address to message the company's support team.

Type "login.yahoo.com" into the browser's URL address field.
You are greeted by the Yahoo! account sign in page.
Click the "I can't access my account" link in the box on the right side.
Select the "My account may have been compromised" option from the choice of sign in problems.
Click the "Next" button.
Type your Yahoo! ID and security code on the next page.
Click "Next" to continue.
Select an alternative email address to send a reset link to.
This only works if you previously added a secondary email address.
If not or the alternative email address has been tampered with, then select the "I can't access any of the above" option.
Click "Next."
Answer the security questions on the next few pages.
You will usually have to answer at least two security questions.
Enter a new password and repeat the password when prompted.
Click the "Next" button to finalize the password-reset process.

Yahoo Messenger Has Been Locked

As its name implies, Yahoo Messenger allows you to exchange instant messages with other Yahoo users.
But the software's capabilities extend far beyond one-on-one text conversations.
You can use Yahoo Messenger to participate in chat rooms, share photos, make telephone calls, video chat, play games and more.
When you experience problems accessing your Yahoo Messenger account, you may receive a message that it has been locked. Locked Accounts Yahoo places locks on Messenger accounts as a security precaution.
The locks take effect when there are multiple, failed attempts to access a user's Yahoo account.
Even if you unsuccessfully tried to to sign in to a different Yahoo product, you may find your Messenger account locked.
Unlocking Accounts
To unlock your account, go to Yahoo's sign-in page and enter your user ID and password.
When you reach your My Yahoo page, click on one of the Quicklinks you see on the left side of the page.
Leave your My Yahoo page open.
Sign into Yahoo Messenger for the Web, then try to sign into Yahoo Messenger.
If you are unsuccessful, contact customer care.
Current Versions
"Account locked" messages aren't the only sign-in problems you may experience with Yahoo Messenger.
Some users experience sign-in issues when using older versions of the software.
Yahoo engineers recommend upgrading to the newest version of Messenger.
To determine what version you have, look for the "About Yahoo Messenger" link under the Help menu.
Visit the Yahoo Messenger website to determine if this is the current version.

Other Sign-in Issues
When you have trouble signing in to Messenger, verify that your Internet connection is working. You can do this by navigating to a webpage.
If you are able to sign into Yahoo Mail but not Messenger, there may be a problem with your connection settings.
The Yahoo Help website offers troubleshooting steps for these settings.

My yahoo account has been locked


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

did you receive a notification message from yahoo that your account is locked? if yes, the locking time is 24hours. The account that is locked is due to multiple log ins using a wrong password. and locks after 3 or so attempts.

Wait until the lock time limit had lapsed, then log in again using the correct password.]

You may need to try and log in and hit Forgot My Password if you cannot log in again when your account is unlocked. Do not lock yourself out again, do not attempt password more than twice if you know it won't work. Each time you try to log into your account, it may restart your time and lock it down again during the waiting period.

Do NOT touch it for at least 24 hours.

If you wish to change your password after this period;


Go to yahoo.com

click sign in;

click i cannot access my account;

click forgot password,

click next

Enter in your email address, the security code and try to reset your password. You can also use your alternate email address, or security questions for this.

Then try and sign in again.

My yahoo account has been locked How can i open please help me?


This message is seen when an attempt to login has failed multiple time. As a security measure, your account has been locked to prevent unauthorized users from being able to log in to it. If you have not recently tried to log in, this is not necessarily a cause for concern. Another Yahoo! user may have mistakenly used your ID when attempting to log in to their own account.

The lock on your account will expire 24 hours after it was first locked. Don't worry-the lockout time period won't reset each time you try to sign in while the account is still locked. You can try to sign in again after the lockout time has expired. Note: Yahoo! is unable to provide you with the exact time that your account was locked or when it will be unlocked.

If you are still unable to sign in with your new password, please see the password problems help page for some common reasons why you are seeing the "Invalid Password" error.

To reset your password, or for further help, visit the following page:

Please my email husin_abdelmenem @yahoo.com as open email appears your account hase been locked i tried to solve the problem to push the password do not work but i do so appears this messageSorry, this...


Actually the problem is with Yahoo, but let me explain why this happened and how to get it back. There's no possible alternatives for you to access your account currently. You have to wait at least 24 hours, this happens when someone or the user attempts to login with wrong password or wrong username several times. Will be able to access after 24 hours, even writing to yahoo support will not helpful since their response takes at least 48 hours which is longer than the time you are gonna wait.

If you want this to be faster, your only option is to wait for 24 hours without any attempt otherwise, it'll reset to 24 hours even if you attempt to login after 20 hours and you'll need to wait another 24 hours and so on, this is not controlled by man, but it's controlled by software.

If in case someone is playing with your account, there'd be problem, suppose if someone tries to login while you are waiting for the 24 hours to get passed, same thing will happen again. Yahoo will not be able to recognize since these things are monitored on the server.

You can try writing to the Yahoo about your problem using this contact form.. Sign-in and Registration help form and all fields without "(optional)" are compulsory.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
