My understanding of Yahoo Mail is such that if you know your current password for your account, you can login to Yahoo Webmail and change it to whatever you want, including changing it back to your previous password, through the settings/profile menu.

If you don't recall your previous password, I am afraid that Yahoo's customer service will not have a record of it for you.

I hope that helps.

Create new yahoo account. My previous account has been stolen and given a new password, which I don't know. The thieves now have control of my email account. I need to establish a new account.


to get it back try putting in your user id and then click on forgot password
when you get permission to reset your password put in a completely new password, reenter it and you have your account back
I then suggest that you change your user id as well by the forgot process
if that doesn't work contact the yahoo administrator and ask how it can be done

I've lost my password for my yahoo account.......swtgrl_ishi@yahoo.in i've forgotten the secret answer too as i created my account way back long........... i have important mails to be read....so i...


There are many chances you would lose your yahoo mail / messenger passwords and would not be able to recover it. Here are some of the steps you need to perform.
yahoo-mail-logo.gifThe basic and normal procedure for recoving your password is to start with this page where you will be asked with your Yahoo ID and will need to confirm whether you have used credit card previously with this login, because if you would have used a credit card previously your account will be verified with those CC details without any charges. The next step would entering your identity details which you would have submitted while registering this yahoo account like Birthday, ZIP (or Postal) Code, and Country.
REQUEST A NEW PASSWORD:
If the above information did not assist you, please attempt to request a new password. Remember that our team may not reset your password or remind you of your current password.
To request a new password:
1. Click on the MY ACCOUNT link at the top of the Yahoo! home page.
2. Enter your password.
3. On the Account Information page, click on the CHANGE PASSWORD link.
You will be prompted to change your password to something different. It is recommended your new password not contain any part of your old one, for security reasons. If you have followed the directions above, and are still unable to obtain a new password for your account or feel that your account may have been compromised, please reply to this email with the following information you supplied during your Yahoo! registration.
yahoo-logo.gif* Yahoo! ID (If you cannot supply this ID, please give your alternate
email address given during your original registration)
* Your name
* Date of birth (mm-dd-yr)
* Your alternate email address
* Secret Question and Answer
* Your city and state
* Zip Code or Postal code you entered during registration
* Your country
If the above solution does not work out , you may have to lose the email because the normally sold softwares which are used for recovering the password are all fraud and they cannot help you to recover the password. All these Yahoo Password Recovery Softwares are fake because none of these can recover the password from yahoo so dont ever buy them.
