Forgot my yahoo.mail confirmation code to access my facebook account


When you sign up for a free Yahoo! account, you gain access to the extensive features of the Yahoo! community and receive a free email account.

As with any account, it is a wise idea to change your Yahoo! password a few times a year in order to ensure its security.

Knowing where to go in Yahoo! to change your password will allow you to do it quickly.

Sign into your Yahoo! email account.

Click on your Yahoo! name at the top of the webpage to access drop-down options.
Select the "Profile" option.

Your account page will open.
Place your cursor over "Account Info" in the toolbar.
Options will again drop down.

Click "Change Password."

Type in your current Yahoo! email password in the first text box.
Enter your new Yahoo! password in the lower two text boxes.

Click "Save."

Your Yahoo! password is now changed.
Fix Facebook If You Get Locked Out

It is possible to get hacked or click on a virus that locks you out of your Facebook account.
The social network uses preventive security measures to stop malicious software or hackers from harming the site.

Sometimes these countermeasures are too sensitive and cause everyday users to get locked out. If you were recently locked out, due to a technical glitch, user error or compromised account, then you can use Facebook's automated compromised reporting tool.

In most cases, you'll regain access to your account within a few minutes.
Type "facebook.com/hacked" in the address bar of a Web browser.

Press "Enter" on your keyboard.
Click the "My Account is Compromised" button to continue.

Fill in the form on the next page by choosing one of three identification methods: email address or phone number, Facebook username, or your name along with a friend's name.

Click the "Continue" button to continue onto the next page.
Enter your Facebook account's password, and click "Continue."

On the next page, the website notifies you that your account is locked out, which it may or may not have already been.

Type a "New Password" and "Confirm Password."
When done typing, click the "Change Password" button.

Click the check box for each email address associated with your account, confirming you have changed the password for your email address.

This is a security precaution. Click "Continue" to move to the next step.
Review if there were changes to Account Settings, and then click "Continue."

Click the "Log In" button.
Your Facebook account is unlocked, and you may proceed to use it as normal.

Yahoo! is a free customizable website that includes free tools such as email, games, sports and chat. When you forget your password, you cannot utilize tools or access your Yahoo! Mail.

Update the email and security questions regularly in order to prevent account loss.

2.Select the button next to "I forgot my password." Click "Next."
3.Enter your Yahoo! user name and enter the security code into the "Enter the code shown" field. Click "Next."
4.Enter your alternate email address. Your alternate email address is the address you listed when registering for a Yahoo! account. Click "Next."
5.Check your email. Yahoo! will send you a message to reset your password.

Reset Your Password Without E-mail
1.Click "Forgot You Password" on Yahoo! Messenger or "I can't access my account" on the Yahoo! Mail login page. Your browser will take you to the Yahoo! password-recovery page.
2.Select the button next to "I forgot my password." Click "Next."
