I missing passward and otenetive emils

Not being able to access your Yahoo! account is frustrating.
If someone has broken into your account and changed your password, or if you have forgot your password, you may be temporarily unable to access your Yahoo! account.

Fortunately, Yahoo! offers a solid password recovery process that allows you to retrieve your password and log in to your account within a few minutes.

Visit your Yahoo! log in page.
Beneath the sign in box, click "I Can't Access My Account."

Select "I Forgot My Password" and click "Next."
Type your Yahoo ID and complete the "Captcha" code.

Click "Next." If you cannot read the puzzle, click "Can't Read Code."
A new code will be automatically generated.

Choose the option to verify your identity.
If you signed up for Yahoo! cellular-password recovery, you'll see an option to receive a text message.

Click "Next" to have the text message sent.
Use the temporary password to log in to your Yahoo! account; then change your password immediately.

Answer your secret question if you are not signed up for Yahoo cellular-password recovery.
Click "Next."

Depending on your preferences, you may also have to select your date of birth and zip code.
After answering the question, you'll be able to create a new password and access your Yahoo! account.

If this fails to get any results
If the Yahoo! account password or ID retrieval methods don't work, you may want to create a new Yahoo! account.

This is done by following the "Sign Up" link at the top of the Yahoo! homepage, next to the "Sign In" link mentioned earlier.

If you choose to create a new account, be sure to remember the alternate email and cellular number you provide in case you find yourself in a similar situation down the road.,d.

How can i verify my account onfacebook if i forgoy my yahoomail password

Despite the care you took in choosing a password that was both memorable and secure, you forgot it.
Now what? No need to panic: Yahoo provides a simple three-step process that will allow you to reset your password and choose a new one even if you don't have an alternate email address.

Click on the "I can't access my account" link found under the Sign In button on the Yahoo login page.

Ensure that the first option in the list, "I forgot my password," is selected.
Click "Next."

Enter your Yahoo ID and the shown verification code in their respective boxes.
Click "Next."

Enter the alternate email address you provided when you registered with Yahoo in the text box, then click "Next."

Yahoowill send an email message to your alternate email address containing a link to reset your password.

Check your email and click that link.
If you did not provide an alternate email address when you registered or you have since lost access to it, select the radio button labeled "I can't access any of the above" and click "Next."

Type the answer to your first security question in the text box, click "Next," type the answer to your second security question in the text box then click "Next" again.

Enter your desired new password in the first text box, then enter it again in the second text box. Click "Next."

Reset Facebook Password

Suddenly you attempt to login to your Facebook profile.
Perhaps you have simply forgotten your password or worst case your Facebook account security has been compromised.

Having had this happen to me, I can help you reset your Facebook password and restore your peace of mind.

You will be back networking with your friends, family and coworkers in no time.
Go to your computer bring up the Facebook login screen like you normally would.

Do not fill in any information.

Click on the link above your Facebook user name and password that states forgot your password. This brings you to a different screen.

Fill in the email address associated or on file with your Facebook account.
If you cannot remember, keep trying different email addresses until you do.

Click enter and a Facebook reset link will be sent to your email so you can recover your password. It usually takes up to 5 minutes.

Check your spam email folder if the email does not appear in your inbox.

Click the link in your email and answer any security questions by Facebook.
This brings back to the Facebook website.

Reset your password with a phrase you will remember mixed in with 1 to 2 numbers or more. Record this in a notebook or on a safe place.

Use a different password than you would for your email.

This decreases your chances of having both websites compromised.

The firm said that most accounts were now restored but warned of a backlog of emails still to be delivered'

Cant remember password for email

Email providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo! and Gmail make it easy for email account holders to request an old password.
You must know your complete email address and have an alternative email address or cell phone number where a confirmation code can be sent.
If you cannot get your password back, your email provider will delete the old one. You can then create a new password.
Go to the email provider's website. For example, if your email address is registered with Yahoo!, go to and if your email address is registered with Hotmail, go to
Find the sign-in section on the main page of the website.
You will see one box for your email ID and one for your email password.

Click the link that says, "Forgot your password?" if you're trying to recover a password belonging to a Hotmail email account.
Click the link that says, "Can't Access Your Account?" if you want to recover a password belonging to a Yahoo! or Gmail email account.
Check the circle indicating that you need to recover your password.
A page under the heading, "Reset your password," will appear.
You'll be asked to enter your email address.
Enter the characters in the picture box to confirm that your request is authentic. Email providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo! and Google employ this security feature to stop automated programs from illegally accessing email accounts.
Click "Continue."
Confirm your cell phone number or alternate email address, which the email provider will use to send a confirmation code.
Do not exit from this page.
You will need it later.
Go back to the page where you confirmed your cell phone number.
Enter the confirmation code that you received. Click "Next."
Enter a new password, if requested, or sign in using your old password, which will appear on screen.

Forgetting your Yahoo! password or ID can happen to anyone, Yahoo! has established procedures for you to retrieve both without having to create a new account.
The password and ID retrieval process is a short and simple one, but you must follow it exactly. The forgotten password process does not give you the password you created when signing up for the account, it gives you a new one, which you can change later. Forgotten Password
To recover your Yahoo! account password, click on the "Sign In" link from the Yahoo! homepage, which will take you to the "Sign in to Yahoo!" page.
Follow the "I can't access my account" link directly below the yellow "Sign In" button.
Select the "I forgot my password" radio button on the next page and then click "Next."
Enter your Yahoo! ID and the code as it is shown and then click "Next."
From the following page, choose whether you want your password sent to the alternate email address or cellular phone number given when the account was created, and then click "Next."
An email is then sent to your alternate email address or cellular phone inviting you to reset your password.
Forgotten ID
From the Yahoo! homepage, follow the "Sign In" link located near the top of the page.
On the next page, click on the "I can't access my account" link directly below the yellow "Sign In" button.
On the next page, you must provide the alternate email address, birth date, country of residence and postal code given when the account was created.
When finished, click on the "Next" button and your ID will be emailed to your alternate email address.
Password Security Questions
If you do not have access to the alternate email address or cell phone number provided when the Yahoo! account was created, you must click the "I can't access any of the above" radio button on the "Please select an option to reset your password" page.
After clicking "Next," you must provide the answers to the security questions selected when the account was created before you are able to reset the account's password.
When All Else Fails
If the Yahoo! account password or ID retrieval methods don't work, you may want to create a new Yahoo! account.
This is done by following the "Sign Up" link at the top of the Yahoo! homepage, next to the "Sign In" link mentioned earlier.
If you choose to create a new account, be sure to remember the alternate email and cellular number you provide in case you find yourself in a similar situation down the road.
