On Yahoo account login screen, you should see an option like :
"I cannot connect my account" or something like this.

Click on that link and follow instructions.
The questions you are asked to answer are the ones you have set as your secret questions, and you have yourself provided the answers. Would it be long time ago, you need to remeber exactly the answers without missing a single letter and space.

If you are lost completely then only way is to create another account, then link it to another email, and set secret questions and answers that you are sure you'll remember answers , e.g. first name of ***********, birth year of your son, etc ...

You should note your secret questions on a text file on your PC and save it or print it.

How can I aCcess my icloud email when I cannot remember password


You can go to iCloud.com and ask to have your password reset. You however must know what email account you used when you registered. iCloud will send you a link to your registered email account, follow the link and reset your password. Write it down somewhere.

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.

I have been locked out of my account on yahoo now for over one month. I have tried all of the usual corrective actions to no avail. I have had this account for so long that I have forgotten my second...


The procedure for recover password on yahoo is to report it forgotten ..and complete the asking ..for the security question s...usually if you have made teh account you will remember the answer for the question cause they are quite personal ..and you can only get wrong a few times..If you had attached a secondary email to the account it is easier cause you choose this method and complete with the correct email address and they send you a link to change teh password in the secondary email ..but if you do not have on e..and you forgot the password the only way is to go with the reporting ..and confirm zip code..and birthday ..and all they ask .including second question ..
I suggest to try with the password you used to have ..if you remembered it ..cause unless someone whom knew the password made a bad joke and changed it ..the old password should still be in use..even if it was blocked for some reason ..report the account blocked ..and they will unlock it and you will be able to use the old password..probably it was blocked cause someone tried the wrong password for a few times..and repeatedly ...or you typed something wrong ..or used the cap.lock on .and caused the account to lock for security reasons..If not ..just make a second account and make in in a way to be almost like the other one so people to recognize it fats ..and send a collective email to all the people you still have the emails ....They can be present in the back-ups ..or on the ipod..if you used to save the agenda...

My yahoo was working from 1day ago at 4:30 Am June 04 , 2011 and suddenly try to open my account again there are amessage told me that your account has been locked for security reasons i don't know...


Usually there are several reasons why it happens the way it happened :
1) Someone is trying to gain access & lock your account. 2) A person tries to guess your password & ID by attempting more than 3 times or so.
But no worries, it's a normal security precaution which will eventually locked the account to prevent the unauthorized user from getting in successfully. This lock down usually will last 24hours after the failed attempts made by the unauthorized user. Go to this main Yahoo! logging site & insert the correct ID & password of your account. The first attempt may prove failure, second attempts will lead you to the "word verification system" which is to make sure that you are not "bots". Follow all those procedures provided by Yahoo!. 48hours after visiting that Yahoo! main logging site, your account should return as normal.
**NOTE: Remember to clear out your ID every time signing out of any sites that preserve your personal informations such as Facebook, Yahoo! Messenger @ Mail & etc. to prevent them from being hack or so.

Please be careful with the situation, do not give credit card or bank details unless you are pretty sure. it can also be a fraudulent email trying to capture your bank details or when some one updating a wrong email address in their Pay pal account. Check this out:
1. Click on the link and check if it takes you really to the Paypal account page (verify this on the browser address bar)
Paypal site is pay.com.
if it is taking you to some other site, which might look like pay pal site, then its a Phshing mail, (fraud) trying to capture financial information.
Also check if the person specified in the mail who sent and see if you know him, check personally with that person if they had really sent you money.

Please my email husin_abdelmenem @yahoo.com as open email appears your account hase been locked i tried to solve the problem to push the password do not work but i do so appears this messageSorry, this...


Actually the problem is with Yahoo, but let me explain why this happened and how to get it back. There's no possible alternatives for you to access your account currently. You have to wait at least 24 hours, this happens when someone or the user attempts to login with wrong password or wrong username several times. Will be able to access after 24 hours, even writing to yahoo support will not helpful since their response takes at least 48 hours which is longer than the time you are gonna wait.

If you want this to be faster, your only option is to wait for 24 hours without any attempt otherwise, it'll reset to 24 hours even if you attempt to login after 20 hours and you'll need to wait another 24 hours and so on, this is not controlled by man, but it's controlled by software.

If in case someone is playing with your account, there'd be problem, suppose if someone tries to login while you are waiting for the 24 hours to get passed, same thing will happen again. Yahoo will not be able to recognize since these things are monitored on the server.

You can try writing to the Yahoo about your problem using this contact form.. Sign-in and Registration help form and all fields without "(optional)" are compulsory.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
