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.

Have a problem with login Yahoo and getting message saying "You are logging from device we won't recognise you" and I forgot my answer for secret question.


The prompt you are receiving is called "Second sign-in verification," and it is designed to protect your account from unauthorized access.

There are several ways to confirm your identity:

Send a code to mobile phone or non-Yahoo! alternate email address:

  1. Go to the Yahoo! sign-in page (http://login.yahoo.com).
  2. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password, then click Sign In.
    • You may need to enter the security CAPTCHA code. (If you do not see a randomly generated code, simply proceed to the next step.)
  3. Select Receive Code and enter your non-Yahoo! alternate email address or mobile number.
    • Note: A code will be sent to the location you entered; make sure you do not navigate away from the page where you entered your alternate email address or mobile number.
  4. Once you receive this code, you will need to enter the code on the page where you entered your alternate email address or mobile number.
    • You may be required to update your current password.

Note: At this time Yahoo! alternate email cannot be used to confirm your identity. If your alternate email address is a Yahoo! email, please use your mobile number or security question.

Verify your security question:

  1. Go to the Yahoo! sign-in page.
  2. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password, then click Sign In.
    • You may need to enter the security CAPTCHA code.
  3. Provide the answer for the security question displayed and click Verify Answer.
    • You may be required to update your current password.

If you do not have a non-Yahoo! alternate email address, valid mobile number, or cannot verify your security question, you may need to contact Yahoo! to confirm your identity. Note: When filling out the form, please select Yahoo! Account under "Product."

My account is inaccessible. Its prompting account is locked "You have exceeded the maximum number of Sign In tries for the Yahoo! ID". This is the first time I experienced this. I did not know...


The message shown to you is not for that you have finished your limit in signing into your yahoo mail. There is no webmail service provider limits the number of logins to the inbox.
The message you got is a result of the many unsuccessful login tries to your inbox, that may be happened because there is somebody tried to login to your yahoo using wrong password many of times.
Just wait a moment then try to relogin again.

Cant login to yahoo to get email.forgot password


You can get a new password, a Yahoo! ID reminder, or both. If you forgot your Yahoo! ID or password, go to the Sign-in Problems page.
If you forgot your Yahoo! ID, you need to provide three pieces of information so we can confirm your identity:
  • Your birthday
  • Your ZIP or postal code (at the time you created your Yahoo! account or when you last updated it)
  • Your alternate email address -Note: You must have access to this email address
  • Country code (at the time you created your Yahoo! account or when you last updated it)
Be sure to provide the same information you gave the last time you registered for a new Yahoo! ID or password or the last time you updated your account.
If you forgot your password, you can create a new one. But first you'll have to provide the following information so we can confirm your identity:
  • Your Yahoo! ID
  • Alternate email address, mobile phone number, or the answers to your secret questions
A Reset Your Password link will be sent to your alternate email address. Click the link and enter your new password in the Reset your password page.
If you entered your secret question incorrectly or forgot what you originally entered, for security reasons, we cannot tell you what your Yahoo! ID is or let you create a new password.


All of this information was taken from http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/edit/id_password/edit-20.html , consult that page for further instruction if you're confused.
