1 Answer 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.)

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.

My yahoo account has been locked

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

did you receive a notification message from yahoo that your account is locked? if yes, the locking time is 24hours. The account that is locked is due to multiple log ins using a wrong password. and locks after 3 or so attempts.

Wait until the lock time limit had lapsed, then log in again using the correct password.]

You may need to try and log in and hit Forgot My Password if you cannot log in again when your account is unlocked. Do not lock yourself out again, do not attempt password more than twice if you know it won't work. Each time you try to log into your account, it may restart your time and lock it down again during the waiting period.

Do NOT touch it for at least 24 hours.

If you wish to change your password after this period;

Go to

click sign in;

click i cannot access my account;

click forgot password,

click next

Enter in your email address, the security code and try to reset your password. You can also use your alternate email address, or security questions for this.

Then try and sign in again.

I down load already but i cant sign in to yahoo msnger even my id and password are correct.

Hi aile_palomo,

If you are logged in in yahoo from the browser and then trying to log in from the messenger , then you might not be able to do so.

However at times when the server is busy , you would not be able to log in in messenger , In this case I would recommend you to wait for some time and then try logging back again.

Hope this helps...:)

I am trying to log in my Yahoo mail account but it shows a page that says a problem occured. I tried to log in several times and started over but nothing changed. By the way i can reach my other Yahoo...

Yahoo is currently having some issues and they are working on it as they claim.
Sadly, there is nothing you can do about this for now, you can only wait patiently and hope they are done with it on time.

I have been locked out of my yahoo account.I atempted to log in and my password did not work and i kept tring and then it locked me out.How can i check my mail?i am waiting on job e-mails.

Not sure, but I think you have to wait, between 12 - 24 hrs for yahoo to let you log in again, because after many failed attempts yahoo automatically locks your ID to protect it from being hacked, you could try emailing yahoo from another email and asking them to unlock it, but I think its a wating game.

Try to wait for several hours and then log in your account again. These problem is a glitch in the yahoo services.So just wait until you can log in to yahoo again. Try also switching to GMAIL if you want.
