    There is one thing you can do. If you put a recovery number when you signed up. Find it notify yahoo.com and they will call you and possibly answer what ever you have done.

This is going to be a dissapointing answer but you can't find it or have any support being helped to find it. The only thing you can do is sign up for another email

SOURCE: our account has been compromised and password

If it's an account problem, you need to email yahoo admins so they can fix it for you. But you need to send proofs about your account

SOURCE: Junk mails sent from my account

Run a virus scan and install AVAST antivirus. Keep it running all the time. Don't open ANYTHING or follow links if you don't know the person the emails come from.

You may change your password by following these easy steps:

To change your password:

  1. From the Yahoo! Home page, click on your user name in the upper right.(You will need to be signed in already)
  2. From the drop down select Account Info
  3. You will be asked to sign in again to enter your Account Info page.
  4. Click Change your password
  5. You will be taken to a page that will look like the one below.
  6. Enter your current password.
  7. Enter and confirm your new password.
  8. Click Save. You will see a confirmation page when you have successfully changed your password.
  9. Click Continue.

Your Yahoo! password always applies to your entire Yahoo! account. This means that it is valid not only for Yahoo! Mail but also for Yahoo!'s other personalized services like :

  • Yahoo! Finance
Note: If you are having difficulty logging into your account or believe your account may have been compromised please request a new password

My profile has been hacked, and sends ugly videos to my friends. How do I report or fix this ?


If You Believe Your Facebook Account Has Been Hacked:

1. Go to the Facebook Account Compromise Reporting Page
2. Click the "My Account Is Compromised" button
3. On the "Identify Your Account" page, enter either your e-mail address, phone number, Facebook username, or your name and the name of one of your friends.
4. Follow the instructions provided to report your account as compromised.
5. Once your account has been reinstated and is back under your control, reset your Facebook password from the "Account Settings" page by clicking the "Change" link under the "My Account" Password section.
6. From the Facebook Privacy Settings page, click on "Apps and Websites". Under the "Apps, You Use" section, click "Edit Settings" and then click on the "X" to delete any suspicious/malicious apps that may have been used to compromise your account.
7. Alert your friends that your account was hacked and warn them not to click on any links that the hackers who compromised your account may have posted on their walls, in chat sessions, or in Facebook e-mails that the hackers sent to them.
Again, to help prevent this from happening in the future, consider enabling features such as Facebook Login Approvals and any other Facebook authentication approval process that relies on multiple authentication factors.
A few simple steps can greatly improve your Facebook security and privacy.

I closed my Yahoo Acct. because Yahoo told me it had been compromised. Thought I opened a new Yahoo Acct., but when accessing it - it goes to the old one. ?? HELP.


You don't have to close a compromised account. You can just update the password and that should uncompromise it for the most part. Just make sure you have encryption enabled if you are not accessing it from their https site..

HO W COME WHEN I TRY TO LOG IN TO MY TWIITTER IT TELL ME THAT IS THE WRONG E MAIL THAT IS THE ONLY E MAIL ADDRESS I HAVE


On twitter you can also log in with your twitter user name. You may try that instead of the email address. If you can log in, you should check your settings to make sure your account has not been compromised or that someone has not changed your email address.

There are reports today that some twitter accounts were compromised recently. http://techcrunch.com/2012/11/08/you-might-have-gotten-an-email-from-twitter-about-your-account-being-compromised/

Hope that helps!

I am not able to open my yahoo mail. I think i my account is compromised. Please help me.!


Try this link from Yahoo, which allows you to reset your password by answering a few security questions. If the person who compromised your account has changed these questions, you should contact yahoo directly by clicking here.

Why i can't open my account?


There are various reasons why you can't open your account: Wrong e-mail address; wrong password; e-mail address is invalid or expired or if your e-mail has been compromised, you can check out their Security Help Center. Is there any particular error message when you try to log in? Thanks.

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.
