My yahoo massager and my yahoo mail is locked how do i fix it


Accounts are locked for 24 hours if you - or someone else - used the wrong password three or more times when attempting to sign into your account.

"Locked Account"
Account Locked


If you recently changed your password, Messenger will not automatically update it. You will need to switch to a desktop or laptop and update your new password in Messenger.

"To manually update Yahoo! Messenger with your new account password:

1. Open Yahoo! Messenger.
2. On the main Yahoo! Messenger sign in screen, clear out your Yahoo! ID:
- Select your Yahoo! ID in the Yahoo! ID box and press Delete on your keyboard.
3. Clear out your old password:
- Select your password in the Password box and press Delete on your keyboard.
4. Type your Yahoo! ID and new password in the Yahoo! ID and Password boxes.
5. Leave the Remember my ID & password checkbox checked, if you wish.
6. Click Sign In."

Please clear your cache and cookies before entering your new password. This will allow the system to update and recognize your password.

Passwords are case sensitive and must be typed exactly as it appears on file.

When signing in from a mobile device, please note that some mobile devices are set to automatically capitalize the first letter.

Forgotten password


You should change your Yahoo! Messenger password for security purposes. Pick a password that only you can remember, but one that's unique so that no one else figures it out.

Instructions

1.Click on the Yahoo! Messenger icon found on your computer desktop, or enter the program from the Yahoo! home page. Log in to Yahoo! Messenger with your user ID and current password. Click the "Yahoo! Messenger" link when the Yahoo! Messenger window opens.

2.Go to "My Account Info." This will take you to the Yahoo! Messenger account information page.

3.Find the link that reads "Change Password." Type your old password into the first field, then type a different password into the new password field.

4.Enter your new Yahoo! Messenger password into the next form field to confirm it. Save the new password into your Yahoo! Messenger account.

5.Log out of Yahoo! Messenger, then log in again. Test your account by entering your user ID and new password.

I want to mak a new yahoo ID,pls help me.


Yahoo! Messenger is a popular Internet instant messenger service. Users who cannot log in to their existing account or wish to change to a new account may register a new account for free by visiting the Yahoo! homepage.

Recovery

If you have lost your account's password, you may still be able to use your existing account. Yahoo! has a password recovery system to help you change your password, but you must be able to remember the answers to the security questions you provided when the account was created.
New ID

If you need a new Yahoo! Messenger ID, visit the Yahoo! homepage and click the "Sign Up" link at the top of the page. Follow the steps and you will have a Yahoo! ID once you finish. Use the same log-in information for the Yahoo! Messenger program.
Precaution

Always remember your Yahoo! Messenger ID to avoid having to register multiple accounts. If you fear you may end up forgetting it, you may want to write it down on a piece of paper and put it in a safe spot.


I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

To reset your Facebook password, please click "Lost password?" - it's located right below the text field where you usually fill in your password. Facebook will then offer you several methods for reclaiming your account.

I have yahoo messenger account on my old computer which is broken now. How do I access yahoo messenger on another computer?


Well, if you remember you user name and your password it shouldn't be a problem. If you can't remember your password you can always request it, providing you remember what email account you set up your YIM account with. If you can't, then the best you can do is try and think of passwords you may have used and try them all. But, if you saved previous chats, they will all be gone, as they were saved on the old computer, but your buddy list will remain intact, provided you can remember your user name and password. Hope this helps. Good luck!
