If you have forgotten your yahoo password and you cannot provide the same information you gave during registration or when you last updated your account. Without the correct verification information,You will not be able to obtain a new password. If there were a easy fix it would be open to abuse from hackers...Sorry.

How to your change password yahoo

1. Log into the Yahoo! Mail website. If you have access to your account, you can change your password from the Yahoo! Mail inbox. Visit and sign in with your Yahoo! account.
  • If you don't remember your password or are locked out of your account, see the Resetting a Forgotten Password section below.
  • Hold your cursor over the Gear button in the upper-right corner. You'll find it next to your Yahoo! account name at the top of the page. When you hold your cursor over the gear, a menu appears.
  • Select "Account Info." You'll find this at the bottom of the menu.
  • You can also visit if you are having problems with the menu.
Click the "Account security" menu. You'll find this listed on the left side of the Account Info page.
Enter your password. You'll need to enter your password in order to proceed to the Account Security page. If you password is saved in your browser, you can usually just double-click the password field to select it.
  • If you don't remember your password, see the next section.
Click the "Change password" link. You'll find this at the top of the "Account security" page.
Create a new password. You'll need to enter the password twice to confirm it. Your password change will take effect immediately, and you'll be signed out of all of your connected devices.
  • Make sure you create a unique password for your email account that you don't use anywhere else.
Sign in with your new password. You'll need to sign back into Yahoo! Mail on any of the devices or programs you were signed in on. For example, if you have your Yahoo! account added to your iPhone, you'll need to enter your new password in the Mail, Contacts, Calendars section of the iPhone's Settings app. The process for logging back in will vary depending on the device or program.

1 Answer tells me that my password has expired. What do I need to do?

If you ever find yourself with a locked Yahoo account, it's likely due to multiple incorrect password attempts.

As a security measure, Yahoo's email and chat client servers automatically lock your account to prevent unauthorized access after there have been multiple invalid password entries.

The ID Lock security measure safeguards a Yahoo account from unauthorized users who try to access your account without permission.Cause

After multiple incorrect password entries to a Yahoo account, the server automatically sets a lock on it.
This happens because every time a Yahoo Account holder logs into his account, he's logged in with a cookie.

A cookie is an information packet that proves you are the valid account holder.
However, when a person tries to access an account with many failed attempts, the cookies expires, triggering the ID lock on the account.
24-Hour Wait

A Yahoo account holder must wait up to 24 hours before accessing the account again.
The lock on the account expires within 24 hours from the time the account was locked.

Unlock Using Another Server Since Yahoo! has many servers around the world, a user can log into his account by visiting a different Yahoo server address. (See Below.)

Copy and paste a Yahoo! server URL into the address bar of your Internet browser to access the website.
Enter the Yahoo! ID and password in their respective fields, and click on "Log in" to access your yahoo account.
Avoid Yahoo Account Locks
To prevent future Yahoo! account locks, a user should limit the number of times he tries to enter a password.

If an account holder has forgotten his password, he should use the "Forgot Passsword" feature to reset the password.

Please check your log in ID and the password to be correct. If only the password is lost you can use the link to retrieve the resetting password to be send to your alternate mail ID..If not it is best to register for a new account.In case the account was hacked you need to check the ID from a friend who had received your mail so that action can be taken.

I have been locked out of my yahoo account and asked to change my password. Everything i tried is invalid. I can't recall my what the answer to my security question is and i need to access the account.

click the "forgot password " link and fallow the instructions, you should have had to supply them with a primary e-mail address and some security questions if that doesn't work then you may need to contact the customer service.

I gave my email address and password to someone and now i cant access my account



Go to the login page of your e-mail provider and then click "forgot password", it will direct you to a page where you can answer security questions to prove you own the account.

Tell them to block the account until further notice.

If you get access and do not find any major security problems (check your inbox and sent box to see what happened while you were locked out), then change the password and don't give your password to anyone again. Nobody else needs to have your password,

If any of your e-mails contain passwords, codes or account numbers for other web accounts or bank accounts or anything similar, then you need to change them all.

You cannot even report the person to anyone, because you gave them the password, so you are responsible for what happened.

Choose more honest friends and do not be so trusting in future.

If you cannot be certain of your security, open a new e-mail account and e-mail your family, your genuine friends and organizations and businesses that e-mail you to inform them of your new e-mail address.

Hope this helps.

Someone has hack my computer

So you notice someone has been doing things in your mailbox! and you are still able to log in to your mail! Its your lucky day!
Because the attacker knows your password and can log in to your account with full privilegies anytime, being in position to change your mailbox account password making you locked out from your own mailbox with the result ACCESS DENIED!!!
You have a TROJAN HORSE installed in your computer that sends everything you write on your computer directly to the attacker.

SOLUTION: Download antivirus, run scan and as soon you are virusfree log in to your mailaccount and change your password.
Now you have locked the attacker out off your account.
Do this as soon as possible,
because the attacker might also se your attempt to clean your computer. If the attacker is faster than you he might change your mail ACCOUNT AND LOCK YOU OUT FOR EVER.....

Be fast, and good luck! if this was useful,Please vote!

Someone probably tried to get into your email account; most likely by accident if you havean easy account name. or one of your friends tried to guess your password and failed / locked. or someone (not likely) tried to hack you account.

On the Yahoo logon screen, click on "I can't access my account"
Answer the few questions and pass the security check.... You will be issued a new password.
