Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My wife signed on to her Yahoo email account. She recently changed her password from "000007" to a new password which she can't remember. When she was guided through the "help" step, it asked for her father's middle name which is Pruett. It won't accept that, but that is his middle name and now she is locked out because she tried a number of other names (including my middle name). It says she is locked out for 24 hours--how do we contact Yahoo and get this fixed?? WATTY (husband of Kimmy Watson)

My yahoo massager and my yahoo mail is locked how do i fix it


Accounts are locked for 24 hours if you - or someone else - used the wrong password three or more times when attempting to sign into your account.

"Locked Account"
Account Locked


If you recently changed your password, Messenger will not automatically update it. You will need to switch to a desktop or laptop and update your new password in Messenger.

"To manually update Yahoo! Messenger with your new account password:

1. Open Yahoo! Messenger.
2. On the main Yahoo! Messenger sign in screen, clear out your Yahoo! ID:
- Select your Yahoo! ID in the Yahoo! ID box and press Delete on your keyboard.
3. Clear out your old password:
- Select your password in the Password box and press Delete on your keyboard.
4. Type your Yahoo! ID and new password in the Yahoo! ID and Password boxes.
5. Leave the Remember my ID & password checkbox checked, if you wish.
6. Click Sign In."

Please clear your cache and cookies before entering your new password. This will allow the system to update and recognize your password.

Passwords are case sensitive and must be typed exactly as it appears on file.

When signing in from a mobile device, please note that some mobile devices are set to automatically capitalize the first letter.

I forgot my Pass word,I am locked out of Face book, Yahoo.com and Gmail.com


Start with Facebook Password
Suddenly you attempt to login to your Facebook profile.
Perhaps you have simply forgotten your password or worst case your Facebook account security has been compromised.

Having had this happen to me, I can help you reset your Facebook password and restore your peace of mind.

You will be back networking with your friends, family and coworkers in no time.
Go to your computer bring up the Facebook login screen like you normally would.

Do not fill in any information.

Click on the link above your Facebook user name and password that states forgot your password. This brings you to a different screen.

Fill in the email address associated or on file with your Facebook account.
If you cannot remember, keep trying different email addresses until you do.

Click enter and a Facebook reset link will be sent to your email so you can recover your password. It usually takes up to 5 minutes.

Check your spam email folder if the email does not appear in your inbox.

Click the link in your email and answer any security questions by Facebook.
This brings back to the Facebook website.

Reset your password with a phrase you will remember mixed in with 1 to 2 numbers or more. Record this in a notebook or on a safe place.

Use a different password than you would for your email.

This decreases your chances of having both websites compromised.
Yahoo Email Password

When you sign up for a free Yahoo! account, you gain access to the extensive features of the Yahoo! community and receive a free email account.

As with any account, it is a wise idea to change your Yahoo! password a few times a year in order to ensure its security.

Knowing where to go in Yahoo! to change your password will allow you to do it quickly.

Sign into your Yahoo! email account.

Click on your Yahoo! name at the top of the webpage to access drop-down options.
Select the "Profile" option.

Your account page will open.
Place your cursor over "Account Info" in the toolbar.
Options will again drop down.

Click "Change Password."

Type in your current Yahoo! email password in the first text box.
Enter your new Yahoo! password in the lower two text boxes.

Click "Save."

Your Yahoo! password is now changed.
Reset My Gmail Password

Google introduced Gmail on April Fool's Day in 2004.
The company first gave out 1,000 accounts to Google employees, friends and family members to test out the new email system.

Now, Gmail is a common and popular email application for users around the world thanks to its ease of use, high capacity and wide range of functionality,

Sign in to your Gmail account with your user name and password.

Click "Settings" in the upper right-hand corner.

Click on "Account and Import," then click "Google Account Settings."
A new window will open.

Click "Change Password" under "Personal Settings."

Type your current password, then type your new password.
Type the new password again for confirmation.

Click "Save."

Why cant i sign in in my yahoo messenger?


Has this just happened recently, or have you always had this problem? Are you sure you're using the correct user name and password? If you've forgotten your password you can request that it be sent to your email, as long as you still use the same email account that you used when you signed up for Yahoo Instant Messenger. It's always good to keep your account up to date, if you change your email address, for example, you should go to your Yahoo account and change it there, so in the case of forgotten password, the information will be sent to the new email address, instead of the one used to sign up with.
If you are sure that you are using the correct user name and password, however, how long have you been unable to sign in. Please provide more information so I can better help you.
Thank you.
