Hi. There's other way to recover your password to your email account. You can change your alternate email account if you can login to our email account which you forgot your password. It is better to create new email account with regards to your problem. One more thing, you can recover your password if you still know your answer to your security question to your email account.

Good Day Tillyohara!

I am sorry to hear that your Yahoo Mail account has been hacked. Truly, if they hacked your Yahoo Mail account, then most of the sites that is associated with your Yahoo account might be accessed too. Just like what happened to your Facebook account.

You can try two procedures that might help you recover your Yahoo Mail account.

1. If you are lucky, and the hacker have not changed your security questions and answers,
you can go to
https://edit.yahoo.com/forgot?stage=fe100&src=ym&intl=us&done=http://mail.yahoo.com&partner=
Follow the on screen procedure, it will verify your identity, at the end you might get lucky again to reset the password.

2. Using your new mail account (tillyohara23@hotmail.co.uk), write an email to account-security-help@cc.yahoo-inc.com
Tell them the story about your problem and your interest to get your Yahoo Mail Account back.
They will response to your immediately and ask for some verification regarding the information you enter when you first created the account.

Or, you can contact their Account Security department for your account verification.
Account Verification department can be reached at:
866-850-4303
TTY 866-438-1601
The Account Verification team is available between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Pacific Time, Monday through Friday.

Please be aware that you will be asked for all of your verification information before they can offer assistance.

You can comeback later and give my answers your four thumbs up rating.

I took my computer to pc world for a repair. They gave me a new email address which I do not want. My old address no longer works and I want it back. I have loads of unanswered emails there that I nee


Hi Frances,

Usually email providers have a method to recover an email address that can no longer be accessed by the owner. If you have a web email provider or a 3rd party email provider like gmail, hotmail, yahoo - you can simply click "forgotten password" or "forgotten username" on the login page. If order for these to work though - you'll have had to have set up the account with security questions or alternate email addresses for the info to be sent to you to view. If you did not do either, you will have to try guessing the password or username or contact the provider's support people. Ultimately, if you can not provide proof that you own the email account I'm afraid your access to it will be lost.

If however your email is provided by your internet service provider (ISP) such as Comcast, Cox, ATT, Verizon, etc., you should be able to regain access to the email account by contacting the ISP's tech support people.

Good luck!

Hullo My Hotmail acc I tried too many times and caused this to appear on same page SIGN-IN IS BOCKED


Dear Frank Rogers,

Account temporarily blocked
To help protect your account from fraud or abuse, we might have temporarily blocked it because we noticed some unusual activity. We know having your account blocked is frustrating, but we can help you get it back easily in a few steps.

Unblock your account
To unblock your account go to https://account.live.com and sign in to your blocked account. You can enter a phone number to request a security code be sent to you via text message, or if your phone doesn\'t support texting, via an automated phone call.

After you enter the security code, you\'ll need to change your password to complete the unblocking process. Make sure you create a strong, unique password to help keep your account secure. You can use our password checker to test the strength of your new password before you use it.

Problems with the security code
The quickest way to get your account unblocked is online, by requesting and then entering a code. If you haven\'t tried unblocking your account online, we recommend you start there.



  • If you didn\'t receive your security code at the phone number you entered, try again or try a different number by clicking I don\'t have a code. You\'ll be presented with another opportunity to request a code.

    If you\'re requesting a text, use a phone number that accepts text messages.




If your code doesn\'t work, make sure you enter the numbers in the body of the message, and not the numbers in the header.



My account is still blocked
If you can\'t unblock your account with the security code and changing your password, customer support can still help you get your account back. To contact customer support, you\'ll need to sign in to your account, and fill out an online form. Provide as much information as you can to help us verify your identity. We take your account security seriously and need these details to help us prevent hackers from accessing your account. You\'ll need to provide an alternate email address where a Microsoft customer service representative will contact you within 24 hours.

Once you\'ve gotten your account unblocked, you can get more info on how to help protect your account



My account has been hacked
If your account has been compromised (hacked) it means that someone stole your password and might be using your account to access your personal information or send junk email.

How did a hacker get my password?

Hackers use several techniques to get your account password.




  • Malware: If you install a program from the Internet that isn\'t from a trusted publisher, it might include malware that logs your keystrokes or searches your PC for saved passwords.


  • Attacking Internet sites: If hackers break into an Internet site and steal account info, they can check it against other sites to see if you\'ve re-used your password.


  • Phishing: Hackers often trick people into sending them their account data.


How can I recover my account?

To recover your account, follow these steps.




1. Clear your PC of viruses or malware before you change your password


Most hackers get your password through malware that\'s been installed on your PC without your knowledge (for example, when you download a new screen saver, toolbar, or other software from an untrustworthy source.) It\'s important to clear your PC of viruses or malware before you change your password. That way, the hackers won\'t get your new password.

If you have a good antivirus program installed, make sure it is up-to-date, then do a full scan of your system. If you don\'t have an antivirus app installed on your PC, Microsoft offers some free solutions.




  • If you\'re running Windows 7, you can download and install Microsoft Security Essentials.


  • If you\'re running Windows 8.1, you already have Windows Defender. To turn it on, from the Start screen or Search charm search for "Windows Defender" and tap or click Windows Defender, then follow the instructions on the screen.


Regardless of which antivirus app you install, run a full scan on your PC before you change your password. You should also set up your antivirus app to automatically get updates and to scan your PC on a regular basis.


2. Change or reset your password



After you run the antivirus app, try to sign in to your account and change your password. If you can\'t sign in, try to reset your password.


Make sure you create a strong password





Don\'t



Do




Don\'t use the same password for different accounts.




Do make the new password significantly different from previous passwords.




Don\'t recycle passwords.




Do change your password regularly.




Don\'t use a single word for your password.




Do use a password phrase (no spaces between words) that can\'t be easily guessed.




Don\'t use easy-to-remember personal info like your name, names of family members, your address, or phone number.




Do use an easy-to-remember sentence or phrase converted into a string of initials, numbers, and symbols.




Don\'t use passwords like "password," "money$$$," or "12345678."




Do use our password checker to test your new password before you use it.




3. Reset your account settings



Since someone else had access to your account, we\'ve cleared your account settings and removed any send-as addresses, email forwarding, and auto-replies. Here\'s how to reset these options.





  1. Click the Options icon 978d981c-a380-4f87-aa7b-f85c072a788a_34.jpg, and then click Options.


  2. Select one or more of the following settings.Send/receive accounts: Under Managing your account, click Your email accounts.

    Reply-to address: Under Writing email, click Reply-to address.

    Email forwarding: Under Managing your account, click Email forwarding.

    Auto-reply: Under Managing your account, click Sending automated vacation replies.


  3. Enter the required info and then click Save.





4. Restore deleted email and contacts



As soon as we detect that your account might have been hacked, we start saving your deleted messages in a safe place. In Outlook.com, click the Deleted folder. At the bottom of the window, click recover deleted messages.

Outlook.com will recover as many messages as possible and put them in your Deleted folder. Any messages not recovered are permanently lost.

If contacts have been deleted, you might be able to restore them. See Restore deleted contacts.






Note





  • Email deleted from children\'s accounts can\'t be restored. This way, parents can be confident that when they delete messages from their children\'s accounts, they stay deleted.





5. Help prevent future hacks



To prevent your account from being hacked in the future, get more info on how to help protect your account.

For more help with keeping safe online, contact customer support.

My password to my email has been changed and when try to reset it says it sent it to an email I have never had


Password recovery options may vary depending upon your email service provider. We request you to share with us the name of your email service provider so that we can suggest you a specific solution pertaining to your issue. In the meanchile, you can refer to the following guidelines.

If the password to your email got changed without your consent, chances are high that your account has been hacked and your recovery email ID is likely to have been modified by the hacker. Hence, your email service provider is sending the password recovery mail to an email ID you never had. In such case, you may not be able to recover/ reset your password by asking your service provider to send you a recovery email.

You can try to reset your password by asking your email service provider to send you a recovery message on the recovery phone number you might have linked to your email account (if you have not tried this already and only in case the respective phone number is still in use). You can also recover/ reset your password by entering the security question and answer (if you have not tried this already) you must have set while opening the email account. In either of the options above, you will be able to get a password recovery option only if the recovery phone number and the security question is not modified by the hacker already.

If none of the above options resolve your issue, you may need to contact your email service provider's support team.
