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.

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. b> Unlocking Accounts b> To unlock your account, go to Yahoo's sign-in page and enter your user ID and password.

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.

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.

I cant sign in plss help me if i sing in there


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.

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.
