I forgot my password and i don't have an option to answer security questions, or to re send my password to an alternate email, or mobile phone number.


If you forget your Yahoo password:

click this link : https://edit.yahoo.com/forgot ....you will be asked for an alternative email address
to which a reset link will be sent.If you don't have an alternative email you will be asked the 2 secret Q's to which you must answer"old accounts may only have 1"you will then be asked for a new password and thats it.

Also:
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.

If you cannot verify the answer to your Security Question, you cannot change it to something else.
We strongly suggest that you add and verify an active alternate email address or mobile phone for your account. This is an email address we can use to communicate with you if you no longer have access to your Yahoo! Mail 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."

I forget my yahoo pasword


1.) Go to yahoomail.com 2.) Click "I can't access my account on the button" below the Sign-in button and beside the Help link. 3.) Answer "What is the problem you are experiencing?" Choosing any of the three problems except you forgot your yahoo ID would result to same password recovery process.Click "Next" 4.) Enter your yahoo ID and and the verification code/anti-spamming code. Click "Next" 5.) Verify your identity by either providing your alternate email or answering security question. Click "Next" 6.) Provide a new pass word for your email.
If you don't have an alternate email address and you failed to answer your security question, better contact Yahoo. They would probably ask you some other information that would allow you recover your ID when you answer correctly their questions.
Still failed? It would be better to create a new email address.

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.

When you request a new password, need technical support, or have questions about your billing, Yahoo! usually asks you for your Secret Question for verification that you are who you say you are.
To protect your account from unauthorized access, Yahoo! must be able to confirm your identify. You can confirm your identity in one of the following ways:
  • Answer your Secret Question (also referred to as a Security Question)
  • Provide a valid alternate email address or mobile phone associated with your account (if you no longer have access to that email address or phone number, it's not valid)
If you can't sign in but have provided an alternate email address or phone number, you won't need to verify your Security Question. Go to the Sign-in Problems page for help logging in to your account.
If you cannot verify your Secret Question and your account doesn't have an alternate email address or phone number we can use to identify you, then you will not be able to reset your password, get answers to questions about your billing, or receive technical support.
If you cannot verify the answer to your Security Question, you cannot change it to something else.
We strongly suggest that you add and verify an active alternate email address or mobile phone for your account. This is an email address we can use to communicate with you if you no longer have access to your Yahoo! Mail account. To add or edit an alternate email address or mobile phone, go to your ACCOUNT INFO: Manage your email addresses page.
