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.

Forgot my yahoo.mail confirmation code to access my facebook account


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.
Fix Facebook If You Get Locked Out

It is possible to get hacked or click on a virus that locks you out of your Facebook account.
The social network uses preventive security measures to stop malicious software or hackers from harming the site.

Sometimes these countermeasures are too sensitive and cause everyday users to get locked out. If you were recently locked out, due to a technical glitch, user error or compromised account, then you can use Facebook's automated compromised reporting tool.

In most cases, you'll regain access to your account within a few minutes.
Type "facebook.com/hacked" in the address bar of a Web browser.

Press "Enter" on your keyboard.
Click the "My Account is Compromised" button to continue.

Fill in the form on the next page by choosing one of three identification methods: email address or phone number, Facebook username, or your name along with a friend's name.

Click the "Continue" button to continue onto the next page.
Enter your Facebook account's password, and click "Continue."

On the next page, the website notifies you that your account is locked out, which it may or may not have already been.

Type a "New Password" and "Confirm Password."
When done typing, click the "Change Password" button.

Click the check box for each email address associated with your account, confirming you have changed the password for your email address.

This is a security precaution. Click "Continue" to move to the next step.
Review if there were changes to Account Settings, and then click "Continue."

Click the "Log In" button.
Your Facebook account is unlocked, and you may proceed to use it as normal.

My Yahoo email has been compromised. I think I have an email virus. I changed my password, but still can not send out emails. Help!


this is a problem faced by a lot of yahoo customers all over the world. your email was hacked and spams are sent. That is why your yahoo has compromised your account. Password change is the right solution. Make your account more secured with security questions and phone numbers. The block on your account will be released within 48 hours automatically.

Help I think my Yahoo Account has been compromised or hacked!!


that happend to me. all you have to do is log on to your yahoo account and change your pass code . when you leave your yahoo account make sure you log out every time. if you stay logged in theres a much bigger chance of it being hacked again. your passcode should be made up of some numbers, mixed upper case and lower case letters. after i changed mine the problems stopped.

A hacker change my yahoo mail confirmation & password


I am sorry to hear that someone has hacked into your Yahoo account and changed your password. There are a couple of methods you can try to resolve this problem. First thing to do is to try and log into your account by entering your user name and instead of entering the password that you already know will not work, click on the "forgot my password" link. When you click this link and report that you do not have your password, it will give you a couple of different options to recover it. If you still have access to an alternate email account that you listed on file with Yahoo when you created your Yahoo email you can send a password reset to that email and recover your account quickly. If you did not specifiy an alternate email address or someone has changed the one you had on file so you cannot receive a password reset at an address that you still have access to - then try answering the security questions you have on file to verify your identity. There should be three questions on file that you should know the answers to. If you cannot answer these questions, then its time to contact Yahoo customer service direct and explain to them - NOT that you have forgotten your password but that the security on your email account has been compromised and you need to stop access until this has been resolved. They will ask you questions about people that you frequently email and others things about your account that only you would know. It takes 24 hours to reset an email account after your identity has been compromised. If you are unable to locate the customer service number for yahoo here are a few suggestions:

UK Customer Care:

Yahoo! AU/NZ contact info = . These are possibilities:

I can't get to my Yahoo mail inbox and it isn't a password issue. I've tried everything on Yahoo's Help list short of reinstalling IE or installing an alternate browser. Any other suggestions?


Your account may have been compromised (someone has hacked into it and changed the login details). Contact Yahoo and tell them what the problem is. They should be able to fix it.

Soneone used my yahoo email to open an a facebook acount


It sounds like someone hacked into the facebook password server and stole passwords. If you think your yahoo email has been compromised I recommend you change your yahoo address and password as well. Try not to give out your personal email account online, but save it for your friends and family, and use an alternate email account for online registrations, etc that you can change if you have problems like this.
Identity theft is a major problem these days, with many people losing information because their computer has been compromised in some way.
It would be worth your while to set a password on the user account on your computer, to make sure no one can log onto your computer as you and use your saved passwords.
Also, go to www.malwarebytes.org and download their free antimalware program and run a full scan of your computer to make sure your system has not been compromised. Fix any problems it finds.

I hope this helps you to resolve this problem. If I've managed to answer your question, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!
