Yahoo Password Cracker How to Crack Hack Your Yahoo Mail Password

I NEED TO CHANGE MY PASSWORD ON MY YAHOO AND GOOGLE ACCOUNT I STAYED LOGGED IN BUT SOMEONE HACKED INTO MY ACCOUNTS AND CHANGED EVERYTHING I AM EXPECTING EMAILS THAT WILL COST ME MILLIONS


You'll need to reset your passwords on both sites if they both have truly been hacked. At the login screen for each email site, you need to click "forgot password". It's usually just below the section where you would normally enter your username and password.

In most cases, you'll need to answer some "security questions" in order for your email provider to send you a password reset link, but once that's done, you'll be able to change your password to something you can remember.

I'd recommend using at least 8 characters; containing ONE capital letter, one to two numbers and at least one "special character" (*, #, !, ?).

I hope this information is helpful to you!

Someone has taken over my yahoo e- mail .


I hope you mean that your Yahoo mail account has been hacked. If this is the case, just open your account profile and change your password - to something unique and something you will remember. Notify your friends (in your yahoo contact list) that you were hacked and to not open any attachments or links from strange emails from your address.

If someone has stolen your yahoo account, and has change your password, and you no longer have access, you will need to notify yahoo customer service. I believe that you can report this to abuse@yahoo.com

Provide yahoo as much information as possible, your user name, your last access to the account, and other email accounts listed (for backup security purposes). Do not list any passwords or dates of birth or any other security information.

Your best solution is to 1) reset your password via yahoo. 2) Set up Yahoo's additional verification 3)Use a strong password containing letters, symbols & numbers.
Use an acronym for your password to make it easy to remember. For example, Acronymn for "I got this answer at Fixya for my Yahoo account on Jan 24" would be Igta@FfmYaoJ24
Tada secure password and easy to remember.
Good Luck

Try making the request on another computer. If still no joy, your yahoo ID may have been "hacked" and changed. It's quite common which is why i don't use them any more.

Some hacked my account


Go to Yahoo and tell them that you forgot your password, it will email a confirmation/new password link to the account you set your email up with. If the hacker has already changed the contact password, you can also change it using one of the secret answers you setup for your account.

Can't sign in on e-mail that we've had for over a year.


Unfortunately, this happened to me last year and I was not able to retrieve my account. What occurred was someone hacked my account and changed the password before I could catch it. Please contact Yahoo Account Services, they will be able to try help you. Their address is account-security@cc.yahoo-inc.com . If you provide them with your account info, they should be able to reset the account and get you back online. Unfortunately, I couldn't remember all my account info, therefore, no help from account services.

Hope this helps,

Have a great day and don't forget to rate
