NO Yahoo do not ask for your pesonal details via emails It is likely a phishing email that will use your information to steal your identity. Yahoo suggests you log in online, NEVER from a link in an email if there is any question about your account. Change your password immediatly.Or delete that account and raise a new one

I forgotten my password


Can't log into Yahoo! Mail?
Are you sure that Caps Lock isn't on, Upper-case letters and lower-case letters are different and so your Yahoo! ID must be entered correctly e.g. BobSmith@yahoo.com - note how the @yahoo.com part isn't capitalized and the name can vary.

If still you can't log into your account after you have checked all spelling and casing for errors then you can request a new password from Yahoo!

Has your Yahoo! Mail account been compromised?

If you notice changes to your account that you did not make yourself and you think that your Yahoo account has been compromised, immediately change your password.

If you are not able to sign into your Yahoo! account, visit the Yahoo's sign in problems page. These pages ask for basic information, such as your birthday and the postal code you provided when you registered to verify that you are the true owner of the account. After verification, Yahoo! will reset your password.
Next, report the possible fraud to Yahoo!. Contact customer care and supply as much detail as possible regarding the problem: I have written a seperate tip on how to do this, it can be found here: http://www.fixya.com/support/r6845388-scams_phishing_yahoo_mail

Did you reply to an unsolicited email asking for your Yahoo! ID or password, please include as much information as possible regarding the email you received
Do you believe your password was collected from a website that was not Yahoo! Include the full address of the webpage you saw collecting passwords.

NOTE: If you supplied credit card or bank account numbers to an unverified website or in an email message, you should immediately report this to your financial institutions.
Immediately after you have either restored your account or created a new one, contact all the people you had in your contacts and tell them that your account had/has been compromised and that they must ignore any emails received from it.

How to recover yahoo password if i was not able to answer the security question?


If you forget your Yahoo password:

click this link : https://edit.yahoo.com/forgot ....you will be asked for an alternative email address
to which a reset link will be sent.If you don't have an alternative email you will be asked the 2 secret Q's to which you must answer"old accounts may only have 1"you will then be asked for a new password and thats it.

Also:
You can get a new password, a Yahoo! ID reminder, or both. If you forgot your Yahoo! ID or password, go to the Sign-in Problems page.
If you forgot your Yahoo! ID, you need to provide three pieces of information so we can confirm your identity:
  • Your birthday
  • Your ZIP or postal code (at the time you created your Yahoo! account or when you last updated it)
  • Your alternate email address -Note: You must have access to this email address
  • Country code (at the time you created your Yahoo! account or when you last updated it)
Be sure to provide the same information you gave the last time you registered for a new Yahoo! ID or password or the last time you updated your account.
If you forgot your password, you can create a new one. But first you'll have to provide the following information so we can confirm your identity:
  • Your Yahoo! ID
  • Alternate email address, mobile phone number, or the answers to your secret questions
A Reset Your Password link will be sent to your alternate email address. Click the link and enter your new password in the Reset your password page.
If you entered your secret question incorrectly or forgot what you originally entered, for security reasons, we cannot tell you what your Yahoo! ID is or let you create a new password.

If you cannot verify the answer to your Security Question, you cannot change it to something else.
We strongly suggest that you add and verify an active alternate email address or mobile phone for your account. This is an email address we can use to communicate with you if you no longer have access to your Yahoo! Mail account.
