Password for yahoo

To change the autofill password for your Yahoo account, you can refer to the following instructions:
1.Open Yahoo page
2.Type the email ID you wish to change autofill password for.
3.When Yahoo autofills your old password, use Backspace button to delete the password completely from the password box.
4.Uncheck any Remember my password or Save my password or similar password saving options that you may see on your screen.
5.Now enter your new password and check the Remember my password or Save my password or similar password saving options that you have unchecked in the previous step.
6.Your new password will overwrite your old password and Yahoo will autofill your new password henceforth.

If the above steps do not resolve your issue, you can consider disabling the Autofill option, signing in to your Yahoo account using the new password, and then enabling the Autofill option again. To do this, you can refer to the following Yahoo support page:
(Important: The steps to be followed to disable and enable Autofill option may vary depending upon your browser. Refer to that section which suits your browser).

Hope this will resolve your issue.

How to retrieve a forgotten yahoo password

Change recover or reset your Yahoo password

I am tempted to suggest you contact the Chinese government as Yahoo was totally hacked. It is safe to say one ought change every password associated with Yahoo. This should encourage one to regularly change passwords. However, never rely on simply a password to protect your system. If you find yourself locked out of your accounts, you may have to try to enter the accounts on a foreign portal, such as yahoo France. If you gain entry, change your password.

Cant get into my yahoo email to read an cant acses my password

Thank you for using FixYa
There could be a number of reasons for this problem in Yahoo.
Get out of your browser and go back in again.
Be sure you have cookies enabled in your browser.
Click on the button that says 'forgot password' and they will give you key words to gain access.
Sometimes it is a temporary glitch and may correct itself in a few hours.
Sometimes there is a security breach of some sort and they will close your account.
Go into Yahoo and search help, account, and follow the instructions.
keep in mind, the only source for gaining access to Yahoo, is Yahoo and no one else has your password unless they have stolen it.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

My wifes yahoo email ( is sending out *** drug advertisements to everyone attached to her yahoo address book. I have run Windows 7 security through our laptop but it did not pick up...

First off, change the password to the account and make it very difficult to guess by using upper and lowercase letters and also use numbers. This may help to ward off any outside access to the account. There are computer programs that go through and try every variation and combination of words in the dictionary to try and break it. This software is capable of trying thousands of passwords a second. The next step would be to change the security questions.
Sometimes, when and email account is compromised, it is compromised permanently. It may be wise to abandon the account, but first see if the problem is solved by tightening up security. It may also be helpful to notify Yahoo of the breach.

How to change my e mail password

Nobody at Fixya can help with Yahoo passwords. You will have to click on the "Forgotten Password"box on the Yahoo log on page. Simply enter your email address and click on that box and Yahoo will give you a new password. May I suggest you keep a small book with all your passwords written down or even invest in a small software program which will remember your password and log on for you.

Someone has stole my yahoo email and i have got a lot of phone calls where they are using it and i cant get in to cancel it.

contact yahoo with this problem and inform them of the security breach. They should be able to help you close your account. They will probably ask you for details such as your security questions answer etc... but they will not ask you for any passwords. I hope this helps
