Yahoo.com tells me that my password has expired. What do I need to do?


If you ever find yourself with a locked Yahoo account, it's likely due to multiple incorrect password attempts.

As a security measure, Yahoo's email and chat client servers automatically lock your account to prevent unauthorized access after there have been multiple invalid password entries.

The ID Lock security measure safeguards a Yahoo account from unauthorized users who try to access your account without permission.Cause

After multiple incorrect password entries to a Yahoo account, the server automatically sets a lock on it.
This happens because every time a Yahoo Account holder logs into his account, he's logged in with a cookie.

A cookie is an information packet that proves you are the valid account holder.
However, when a person tries to access an account with many failed attempts, the cookies expires, triggering the ID lock on the account.
24-Hour Wait

A Yahoo account holder must wait up to 24 hours before accessing the account again.
The lock on the account expires within 24 hours from the time the account was locked.

Unlock Using Another Server Since Yahoo! has many servers around the world, a user can log into his account by visiting a different Yahoo server address. (See Below.)
http://thingsaboutcomputer.blogspot.com/2009/03/how-to-unlock-yahoo-when-account-is.html

Copy and paste a Yahoo! server URL into the address bar of your Internet browser to access the website.
Enter the Yahoo! ID and password in their respective fields, and click on "Log in" to access your yahoo account.
Avoid Yahoo Account Locks
To prevent future Yahoo! account locks, a user should limit the number of times he tries to enter a password.

If an account holder has forgotten his password, he should use the "Forgot Passsword" feature to reset the password.

MY ID IN YAHOO MESSENGER IS LOCKED. HOW CAN I USE UNLOCKING PROCESS?


As its name implies, Yahoo Messenger allows you to exchange instant messages with other Yahoo users. But the software's capabilities extend far beyond one-on-one text conversations. You can use Yahoo Messenger to participate in chat rooms, share photos, make telephone calls, video chat, play games and more. When you experience problems accessing your Yahoo Messenger account, you may receive a message that it has been locked.


Locked Accounts
Yahoo places locks on Messenger accounts as a security precaution. The locks take effect when there are multiple, failed attempts to access a user's Yahoo account. Even if you unsuccessfully tried to to sign in to a different Yahoo product, you may find your Messenger account locked. b> Unlocking Accounts b> To unlock your account, go to Yahoo's sign-in page and enter your user ID and password. When you reach your My Yahoo page, click on one of the Quicklinks you see on the left side of the page. Leave your My Yahoo page open. Sign into Yahoo Messenger for the Web, then try to sign into Yahoo Messenger. If you are unsuccessful, contact customer care. b> Current Versions b> "Account locked" messages aren't the only sign-in problems you may experience with Yahoo Messenger. Some users experience sign-in issues when using older versions of the software. Yahoo engineers recommend upgrading to the newest version of Messenger. To determine what version you have, look for the "About Yahoo Messenger" link under the Help menu. Visit the Yahoo Messenger website to determine if this is the current version. b> Other Sign-in Issues b> When you have trouble signing in to Messenger, verify that your Internet connection is working. You can do this by navigating to a webpage. If you are able to sign into Yahoo Mail but not Messenger, there may be a problem with your connection settings. The Yahoo Help website offers troubleshooting steps for these settings. Hope this helps
