Locked out of yahoo account


If you suspect that someone has hacked your Yahoo! account or if you attempt to log in your account too many times with an incorrect password, Yahoo! might lock you out of your account.

After several failed login attempts, the Yahoo! security feature locks your account for a predetermined amount of time to prevent unauthorized users from accessing your account.

Unauthorized users might use your account to send unsolicited emails or intrude on your private content and emails.

Although being locked out of your Yahoo! account can be frustrating, you can gain access to your account and change your password after the lock expires.

Wait 24 hours.
Return to the Yahoo! website and click the "Sign In" link at the top of the page.


Click "I Can't Access My Account."
Select "I Forgot My Password" or "My Password Doesn't Work" from the list of options.

Click the "Next" button to proceed.
Enter your Yahoo! ID in the "My Yahoo! ID is" field.


Enter the security code in the "Enter the Code Shown" field. Click the "Next" button.
Click "I Cannot Access Any of the Above" and click the "Next" button.
Type the answers to the security questions in the appropriate fields.

You set these security quests when you created your Yahoo! Account.
Click "Next."


Enter a new password in the field and verify the password by retyping it in the field.
Click the "Next" button and Yahoo! resets your password.

The new password is effective immediately, allowing you to sign in your Yahoo! account.

Yahoo.com 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.)
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.

Samsung password reset


Im assuming its a samsung phone
Samsung cell phones come with many security features.
In addition to the common feature of preventing calls after a period of inactivity, some Samsung phones also allow you to prevent others' use of your phone's SIM chip and access to your files.
One password unlocks the various locks, except for two other passwords used for the SIM chip. The syntax of the menu items to click to reset a password differ somewhat between Samsung models but you can figure out roughly how to apply instructions for one phone to another.

1
Lock the phone from making calls by clicking "Start" or "Menu," "Security Settings" (or "More" and then "Security"), and "Phone Lock" or "Device Lock."
Change the password by clicking "Start" or "Menu," "Security Settings," and "Change Password." Then enter a new password.

2
Set the phone to work only with the current SIM chip by clicking "Menu," "Security Settings," and "SIM Lock."
Enter a new password when prompted.

3
Prevent unauthorized use of your SIM card by clicking "Menu," "Security Settings," and "PIN Lock." Type a new PIN when prompted.
4
Prohibit access to your files, messages and contact list by clicking "Menu," "Security Settings," and "Privacy Lock."
Enter the password from Step 1 when prompted to unlock access.
Reset the file lock/messages/contact password by resetting the phone lock password, as in
Step 1

I am trying to access http://192.168.0.1, which I was able to do yesterday,but it now refuses to recognise my name and password


See if you can access the router settings with the default user and password, which is "admin" and "password". If you are still locked out, reboot the router. If still locked out, look on the bottom or back of the router for a very small hole to stick a paper clip end in,, to reset the router. Once reset you will have to use the default user name and password to access the settings and change the password to your liking. Hope this helps FixYa up.

I can sign in on yahoo messeger at home but on another computer i get account locked messege, whats wrong?


Hi

Your account is unlikely to be locked. If it were, you would not be able access it even at home.

On your home computer you probably have your username and password saved and the website therefore recognizes your computer and accepts you as the authorized user.

On other computers you have to log in with your correct username and password or, if the forgotten username or password option is chosen, answer a series of securirty questions to regain access.

If you make too many attempts with the wrong username, password or answers to security questions, then the website will lock access to the specific computer being used.

I hope this helps.

Do I have to lock my D-link router connected via Ethernet cable? If so, how do I find the router on my PC?


Ya you should lock it with password .. bcoz.. if you will not lock it other might access it and it may harm you in some way.. they might access your internet resources , or data .. or anything they can do with your network settings with that router...

Connect to your router with your browser. then you will find a wireless security tab over there... click on that tab and you will find that the security features are disabled.

You should have several options when it comes to the type of security that you can choose. I prefer WPA, it allows you to simply enter a password to access your wireless network. This password can of course be saved in your wireless settings so there is no need to enter it but one time.

Simply enter your password in the password box and hit save. Your wireless network is now secure. Distribute the password to anyone that is allowed access to your wireless network.
