Not sure how to turn it off, but a workaround is to put in an INCORRECT password and save that.

My yahoo massager and my yahoo mail is locked how do i fix it

Accounts are locked for 24 hours if you - or someone else - used the wrong password three or more times when attempting to sign into your account.

If you recently changed your password, Messenger will not automatically update it. You will need to switch to a desktop or laptop and update your new password in Messenger.

"To manually update Yahoo! Messenger with your new account password:

1. Open Yahoo! Messenger.
2. On the main Yahoo! Messenger sign in screen, clear out your Yahoo! ID:
- Select your Yahoo! ID in the Yahoo! ID box and press Delete on your keyboard.
3. Clear out your old password:
- Select your password in the Password box and press Delete on your keyboard.
4. Type your Yahoo! ID and new password in the Yahoo! ID and Password boxes.
5. Leave the Remember my ID & password checkbox checked, if you wish.
6. Click Sign In."

Please clear your cache and cookies before entering your new password. This will allow the system to update and recognize your password.

Passwords are case sensitive and must be typed exactly as it appears on file.

When signing in from a mobile device, please note that some mobile devices are set to automatically capitalize the first letter.

I locked my computer with a password and now I cannot remember the password. How do I unlock my computer?

  • 1Hit "Control," "Alt" and "Delete" on your keyboard all at the same time and hold them for a few seconds. Select "Restart" from the list of options presented in the Task Manager. If you cannot get to the task manager using this method, manually shut down your computer by pressing and holding the power button. Wait about 30 seconds before turning the computer back on.
  • 2Wait for the computer to get to the Windows logo then press and hold "Control," "Alt" and "Delete." The classic login box will appear. Type "Administrator" in the dialogue box marked "User" and leave the password box empty. Click "Sign in" or hit "Enter" and wait for Windows to load the administrator profile.
  • Click the "Start" button on the bottom-left corner of your screen. Scroll through the list of programs until you find "Control Panel" and open it.
  • 4Locate the "User Accounts" tool. In the "User Accounts" window, select the password tab. Locate the account that you wish to reset the password for and select the text box with the black dots in it. Delete these dots and enter the password that you wish to use. Re-enter the new password in the "Confirm New Password" area. Click "Apply."
  • 5Close all of the open windows. Then, click your "Start" menu and select "Restart." Wait for Windows to restart and this time allow it to boot up normally. Enter the new password into the "Password" dialogue box and hit "Enter."

    Hi i forgot my unlock pattern what can i do

    Try your pattern 15 times and a dialog box will appear that will link you to sign into your Gmail account where you can create a new pattern password.
    If you don't remember the password for your Gmail account, you will need to complete a factory data reset. Factory reset will permanently delete all your data and customized settings, and will remove any applications you've downloaded and installed. SD and SIM card data will not be deleted.
    With the phone turned off, press and hold the Volume Down button, and Power button for 10 seconds.

    Wait for the screen with the 3 Android images to appear, and then release the buttons.

    Press Volume Down to select FACTORY RESET, and then press the Power button.

    When i enter the twitter page it already has my email address and my password,maybe i have pressed a button or can i get rid of this?because this is very dangerous when i am not the one...

    Welcome to FixYa!
    To avoid this kind of issue from happening, follow this steps:
    • Open internet explorer.
    • Look on the upper part of the page, along side the toolbars like file, edit, view,etc...,look for the word tools.If its not showing just press F10 on your keyboard it should show up. Click on Tools.
    • Look for internet options and click it.
    • Look for the general tab, under that tab look for delete browsing history and click delete.
    • Put a check mark on all of the boxes, especially for passwords and save forms(this is the reason why its automatically filling up your twitter or facebook) then click the delete all button. And your done.
    P.S. when you logged in to any website with a username and password, a pop-up normally come up asking if you want the password to be remembered, just click no. Hope this helps! Thank you for using FixYa!

    Click on Delete button
    Click on Delete Files button and click OK to delete
    likewsite do the same for Delete Cookies and Delete Forms

    In Yahoo log in mail, how do I uncheck permantely the automatic 'keep me sign in' feature? I tried internet explorer/tool/delete/password and it doesn't work

    If you look up at the upper left after you log on to your mail you should see sign out. If you sign out you should be able to remove the checkmark. If the problem is that you told your computer to remember your password. You should be able to change your password and this time tell your computer not to remember the password when you sign in.

    I can't close out of facebook to allow someone else to log onto their account. When I go to sign it, it automatically opens my account. What do I do.


    To log out u need to go to the account button on the top right, then click log out. Once u do that it should take you back to the login page where your login information will be saved. Just uncheck the save my password box and have someone else log in.

    Hope this helps you out,

    Everytime i turn on my pc the mail is my home page. I never sign out and the button is pushed to remember me, yet i have to sign in everytime.

    Make sure your computer's not deleting the browser history and catch doing so erases the password from the computer's memory therefore you'd have to RE type it instead of the computer keeping you login or automatically logging you in

    My solution to this problem would be to manually clear the catch/cookies and browser history so the computer doesn't keep trying to do that then RE type your password and username tell the computer to remember you then close the browser and restart your computer then try logging in again the computer should automatically log you in or have kept you login hope this helps
