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.)
http://thingsaboutcomputer.blogspot.com/2009/03/how-to-unlock-yahoo-when-account-is.html

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.

SOURCE: Invalid email address

Juan,

The .ph is an abbreviation for the Phillipines. This is done in most, if not all, foreign countries. For example in the United Kingdom you would get an email address of yahoo.com.uk. Hope this helps.

By the way, I sent a test email using just .yahoo.com to see if it still goes through. if it does, you can use just yahoo.com without any problems. Yahoo will continue to use .ph for accounts in the Phillipines.

Thanks for using Fixya.

SOURCE: I recently removed my computer (my user) password

Bruce, Windows Security does not have the ability to block and e-mail account. The real problem is, is that you just forgot what the password is.

Same thing you will get from your e-mail client like Outlook 2003 or 2007, if you can't provide the correct password.

Go to the login page of Ymail and use the link "I can't access my account". Answer the questions, follow the instructions, and provide an alternate e-mail address, and the password will be e-mailed to you.

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding your e-mail problem.

Thank you and good luck!

Why indeed, when there's no notion of why you can't or won't or wouldn't! Is there some off-putting message it offers instead of letting you login, or do you just need to enable a few script hosts (Yahoo.com and about 5 more Yahoo ones) having installed NoScript, to get webmail running? Perhaps the firewall or DNS things at work changed if that's the route you're logging in from. Something changed from having internet access to your browser or your firewall, and perhaps it changed the response you get logging in?

I believe you account has been restricted because you've tried to log in many times with a wrong password. We need to unlock it.

Because maybe someone is trying to hack your account that's why your account was locked.

But don't worry I have a site that will help you on how to retrieve your account.

Please just click HERE.

I hope you find it very helpful.

Dear sir, some one locked my yahoo pasword how can recover my password


From Yahoo.

This message is seen when an attempt to login has failed multiple time. As a security measure, your account has been locked to prevent unauthorized users from being able to log in to it. If you have not recently tried to log in, this is not necessarily a cause for concern. Another Yahoo! user may have mistakenly used your ID when attempting to log in to their own account.
The lock on your account will expire 24 hours after it was first locked. Don't worry-the lockout time period won't reset each time you try to sign in while the account is still locked. You can try to sign in again after the lockout time has expired. Note: Yahoo! is unable to provide you with the exact time that your account was locked or when it will be unlocked.
If you are still unable to sign in with your new password, please see the password problems help page for some common reasons why you are seeing the "Invalid Password" error.

Need new password each time I log-on!


sounds like you may have cookies shut off on your computer. the point i was trying to make about a shared computer or a library is that people can find out your password fairly easily (yes i know how, no i won't tell you how). so they could very well be messing with your account.

Sorry, this account is temporarily locked This account has been temporarily locked because of security concerns.
The lock on your account will expire in approximately 24 hours—the lockout period will not reset each time you attempt to sign in while the account is still locked. You can try to recover your password again after the lock has expired. See you tomorrow!
