Your Yahoo account is always protected by a password. As an added precaution, the site asks that you select a security question and provide an answer unique to you. With any luck, your security questions are personal enough that you can easily remember the answers. Unfortunately,sometimes you may forget the answers to your security questions. It is still possible to access your account without knowing your password or the security questions.

Purpose of the Security Question

You do not need to use your security question each time you sign in to your Yahoo mail your password will suffice.


The security question feature is an extra security measure used to reset a lost password.

You must provide the correct answer to your security question, which you provided when you set up the question, if you have forgotten the password for your email account.


Accessing Your Account Without the Security Question


If you have forgotten your password and don't know the answer to your security question, there is an alternative way to get your password.


When you signed up for Yahoo, the site asked you to provide another email address.

If you forget the password to your Yahoo mail account, request that it be sent to your other email address.


Yahoo will send a link to that email that lets you reset your password and access Yahoo mail.


Resetting Your Security Questions


Once you regain access to your Yahoo mail account, it is important to change your security question to something you will remember in the future.


Click on your name, select the "Account Info" tab and re-enter your password.

Under Sign-In and Security, choose "Update password - reset info."


Choose your new security questions from the drop-down list proved and enter the appropriate answers. Click "Save" to set your new questions.


Considerations


When your email account has gone unused for quite awhile, Yahoo may put a hold on your account for 24 hours as a security measure.


If you still cannot remember your security questions after that time period, you are allowed to request a link to your alternate email address.


If you don't have an alternate email address, use the "Contact Yahoo!" link to send a message to customer service.


Without a password, alternate email address or security questions, a Yahoo representative must confirm your identity before you are allowed access to your account.

    Like many websites, Yahoo.com offers several safety measures to help you if you forget your password or user name.One of these measures is the Secret Question, which you choose and answer when creating your account. When you answer your Secret Question, Yahoo! resets your password and gives you access once more. You may change this question or your answer at any time.Click My Yahoo.Click "More Yahoo Services." Click "Account Information."Type in your password and click "Sign In."Click "Update Password-Reset Info."Click "Change Answers and Questions."Select your new questions and type in your new answers.When you're done, click "Save."Click "Done" to finishhttp://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/or...

SOURCE: Dear sir/madam, i forget my yahoo id password

Hello there!

Unfortunately, if you have forgotten your username or password and even your security question/answer, you can no longer recover your email services. You just have to create a new one.

However, try to click the "forgot password" and then the reset password link might be sent to your secondary email address, if you register one.

Good luck!

Hi I forgotten my password and security question how can I get back onto my email ?


You don't need to know what your security question is to change you password, you need to know the answer to it (some hard to forget aspect of your past life - which only you have lived - so should know this answer automatically if awakened at 3 am and asked this security question). Email providers also all have Tech Support groups with phone numbers .Use Google to look it up and phone them. They keep a record of you name and address so they can check you out and reset your password.

Everytime I sign in, asked name of fovorite Uncle which i forget already co'z this more than 3 years ago. Can you help please


You should be able to tell yahoo you forgot your password and they will send you an email to your secondary email address where you can reset your password without having to answer the security question. Once you have reset your password and successfully signed in you should change your security question to something you will not forget.

I forget my yahoo mail id password but i remember answers of both security questions. i don't want to reset my password, i want to retrieve my old password, please help me.


You cannot retain the forgotten password because no one has the password but you. Since you have forgotten the password you can only be prompted to change the password to something else you can remember if you answer the security questions correctly .
