Identity problem Account disabled.


E-mail accounts are disabled after so much time has past without the user logging in. First try giving email id and then clicking on forgot password option. They will either send you a temp password to get into your account or they will ask you secret questions used when you set up the account.
If that does not work then follow what they say and create account and use the same email and password of the original. It might rez it. Or just make a brand new account and log in once in awhile so it does not become disabled.

I have forgot my password and yahoo secret question's answers, plz help


Well Yahoo has tight security feature that wont allow you get your password if you do not remember your secret questions and answers. When you first opened the account, did you add an alternate email? If you remember the email you added and the password to that then go to that mail as yahoo always sends you account details to the alternate mail.
If you still cant remember any of the details, then you will have to open a new account. But make sure u note the questions and answers down somewhere safe that you wont misplace it. Also remember to use an everyday word thats common to you, like a combination of ur parents names or friends names etc.
I hope this helps you in some way.

Sir i forgot my password.I do remember my 1st secret question but i cant remember my 2nd secret question,nor do i kept any alternate email id,i hve some important mails in and i want them,its important...


Hello,
Unfortunately, the official answer from Yahoo is that if you forgot your secret questions you will need to create a new account.

From Yahoo: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/edit/id_password/edit-20.html

You can get a new password, a Yahoo! ID reminder, or both. If you forgot your Yahoo! ID or password, go to the Sign-in Problems page.
If you forgot your Yahoo! ID, you need to provide three pieces of information so we can confirm your identity:
  • Your birthday
  • Your ZIP or postal code (at the time you created your Yahoo! account or when you last updated it)
  • Your alternate email address -Note: You must have access to this email address
  • Country code (at the time you created your Yahoo! account or when you last updated it)
Be sure to provide the same information you gave the last time you registered for a new Yahoo! ID or password or the last time you updated your account.
If you forgot your password, you can create a new one. But first you'll have to provide the following information so we can confirm your identity:
  • Your Yahoo! ID
  • Alternate email address, mobile phone number, or the answers to your secret questions
A Reset Your Password link will be sent to your alternate email address. Click the link and enter your new password in the Reset your password page.


If you entered your secret question incorrectly or forgot what you originally entered, for security reasons, we cannot tell you what your Yahoo! ID is or let you create a new password.


Please let me know if I can help you further.

Regards,

KYTechnology

I forgot my password and dont remember my answer to the security question. HELP


You can get a new password, a Yahoo! ID reminder, or both. If you forgot your Yahoo! ID or password, go to the Sign-in Problems page.
If you forgot your Yahoo! ID, you need to provide three pieces of information so we can confirm your identity:
  • Your birthday

  • Your alternate email address -Note: You must have access to this email address

Be sure to provide the same information you gave the last time you registered for a new Yahoo! ID or password or the last time you updated your account.
If you forgot your password, you can create a new one. But first you'll have to provide the following information so we can confirm your identity:
  • Your Yahoo! ID
  • Alternate email address, mobile phone number, or the answers to your secret questions
A Reset Your Password link will be sent to your alternate email address. Click the link and enter your new password in the Reset your password page.
If you entered your secret question incorrectly or forgot what you originally entered, for security reasons, we cannot tell you what your Yahoo! ID is or let you create a new password.

When you request a new password, need technical support, or have questions about your billing, Yahoo! usually asks you for your Secret Question for verification that you are who you say you are.
To protect your account from unauthorized access, Yahoo! must be able to confirm your identify. You can confirm your identity in one of the following ways:
  • Answer your Secret Question (also referred to as a Security Question)
  • Provide a valid alternate email address or mobile phone associated with your account (if you no longer have access to that email address or phone number, it's not valid)
If you can't sign in but have provided an alternate email address or phone number, you won't need to verify your Security Question. Go to the Sign-in Problems page for help logging in to your account.
If you cannot verify your Secret Question and your account doesn't have an alternate email address or phone number we can use to identify you, then you will not be able to reset your password, get answers to questions about your billing, or receive technical support.
If you cannot verify the answer to your Security Question, you cannot change it to something else.
We strongly suggest that you add and verify an active alternate email address or mobile phone for your account. This is an email address we can use to communicate with you if you no longer have access to your Yahoo! Mail account. To add or edit an alternate email address or mobile phone, go to your ACCOUNT INFO: Manage your email addresses page.

I forgot my password. then how i open my account


In order to reset and change the password of Gmail and corresponding Google Account with the affected Gmail email address, follow these steps:

4. Enter the username for the Gmail or Google Account in the field provided.
5. Enter the captcha letters as shown in the image on screen.
6. If you never login to the Gmail for the previous 24 hours, a secret question as set in the Google Account will be presented. Answer the question with a correct answer in order to be able to reset the password.

If you're unable to answer your security question and the account has a secondary email address configured, a link will appear at the bottom of the secret question results page. Clicking on the link will has a password reset email message sent to the secondary email mailbox. After receiving the email, follow the link to reset the password.

If you have login to Gmail in the preceding 24 hours period, the password reset email will be sent immediately instead. Follow the link to reset the password. If you don't have a secondary email address, or if you no longer have access to that account, repeat the steps above after 5 days.

7. If you cannot remember the answer to secret question, cannot answer the secret question correctly and do not receive password reset email in secondary email account, try to contact Google for help.

Something about the password..


Your yahoo account only has those three methods of access - one, the password, two, the secret question, and three, the alternate email address. If you forgot the password and the secret question, and you can't get your alternate email address back, you're out of luck - you'll have to get a new email account.

The whole point of the secret question is that it's supposed to be something you could never forget, like a pet's name or something - what was the question you forgot?
