It is very important to have alternate email address when opening an account in Yahoo or any other email web host. If it has been hacked, unless you can hack your email account you can still recover it. I'm sure you can also access to Yahoo webmaster to email your problem to get back to it.

Please help me i have forgotten my secret question but i know my yahoo address and password.


You do not say whether you have ad-free paid Yahoo. If so, Customer Care is very helpful. Try emailing them from another account at; customercare-en@cc.yahoo-inc.com
if you do not have another account create a free one at JUNO, Outlook.com, gmail, etc.

You will need to open a new account, to try and use the old one is not safe. As far as matters with Yahoo and their email service you will need to contact Yahoo customer support, the Help is available at the yahoo web site.

What is yahoo e mail address, please


To access yahoo(search engine) electronic mail service, we need to open an account with yahoo. The email might look like xyz@yahoo.com. It helps us to send/receive data, files, photographs, videos etc. We can access our email account from any internet access point across the globe and also upload any kind of data from ample usage any time. Email has become the most efficient method to keep in touch with different people at different locations.

I have some hack or virus that is sending emails from my yahoo account to my contacts with a link to a canadian company selling viagra and cialis, etc.. I want to stop this from happening...


Recently spam hackers have been hijacking Email accounts to use for their own dirty deeds and scams. The best thing to do is to deactivate your Yahoo account and make a new one.

Click here to go to the Yahoo compromisation web site and follow the instructions to disable your account.

The reason deleting the account is because these spam hackers are sending unwanted advertising to all your contacts claiming to be you. As far as you know they might even be sending emails to all your contacts asking for money.
There was a recent scam where spam hackers hijacked this lady's account and sent a message to all her contacts that she was stuck in Namibia and needed money to be sent to a specified account to get home.

To stop it, delete your email account, or if you are able to regain access, change your password to something a little more complex and define for yourself a few security questions only you would know. Another thing is just to contact all the people you had in your contacts and tell them that you account has been compromised and that they must ignore any emails received from it.

My yahoo email and facebook accounts have been hacked. I changed the passwords twice last week, trying to get rid of the hacker, but now I can't even access my yahoo account. My ex mother in law is...


Had you ever assigned a special question to your account that only you will know the answer?
It is clear to me that you have probebly use the same password for both your Facebook account and your Email.

You can go here and declare your account compromised. It will ask you for your Yahoo ID and to copy the provided code into the block provided.

Sometimes Yahoo mail servers are comprimised by spam hackers for spam use so don't go accusing you ex's mother just yet.

It would be a good idea to open a new account and tell all the people who you had in your contacts that your Yahoo account has been compromised.
There was a recent scam where hackers were hijacking accounts and sending mails to all your contacts claiming to be you and telling them to deposit large sums of money into a certain account as you are stranded in Nigeria.

With this in mind:
1) Declare your account compromised here.
2) Delete your old account.
3) Create a new account.
4) Assign security questions that ONLY you would know the answers to. (This is a major way in preventing this from happening again)
5) Send emails to all of your contacts that you had in your old account telling them of the compromisation and to ignore ALL emails from your old account.

Your rating for this solution is highly appreciated.
Thanks.

I have been hacked. I have lost my yahoo identity. I need a new password. I have contacted Yahoo help several times but nothing has happened except that I received some instructions that do not work. ...


Only Yahoo can help you. If you can't follow their instructions all you can do is to set up a new account and send everybody a message that the old account is compromised and it should be blocked from now on.
This has happened because your password has been a weak one (you haven't been hacked - they guessed it easily), don't repeat that mistake. And posting your personal data here on in any other public place is the most dumb thing possible. DON'T DO IT AGAIN ! You could lose a lot more than an email account, starting with your money and your house.

I want to get back my yahoo account that is stolen


The best thing you can do is email Yahoo about the theft.
They'll try to prove that what you're saying is authentic, and maybe give you back your account.

Hope I helped,
