If you listed an alternate email address (other than your Yahoo email) then you may reset your password using the "My account may have been compromised" feature.
At the Yahoo sign in page select the "I can't access my account" link below the login fields, on the next page you will see the "My account may have been compromised" option.

Good luck, and make sure to make your passwords unique for different sights/emails/programs because if you use the same password and one account is compromised, all of your accounts are compromised.

Create a new account if you can and log on to get to support.
otherwise contact a friend via a land line phone and have them contact support on your behalf.

Hi, that error occurs only when you signed in or log in to another computer or device. There must have been someone who knows your password and e-mail address. Please change your password for security purposes. To change your password please follow this instruction:
1. Sign in on your account then click on your "yahoo id" then hit on "account info" as shown below.

> Step 1: Test Your Internet Connection
> Step 2: Verify Your Yahoo! ID and Password
Open Internet explorer and www.mail.yahoo.com

Make sure that you can access secure pages from Internet Explorer
Try to sign in to Yahoo! by going to the Yahoo! sign in page and enter the same Yahoo! ID and password you were using before.
> Step 4: Verify Credentials
Verify that the same Yahoo! ID and password you used before in the last step also works in the online version of Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger for the Web:

I think you or someone tried to log in your Yahoo ID with wrong password for more times..that caused lock.. This is a security lock for your Yahoo! ID. If you know the correct password you can unlock it by opening http://www.yahoo.com/r/m6 or http://mail.yahoo.com, for the first time type your ID correctly and type any password(if password is wrong no problem), click Sign In . in reply the same page will appear again... this time type your ID and password correctly, type the captcha verification code correctly as shown in image box and click Sign In. if your password is right your ID will be unlocked

Thanks for being with us....good luck
