Try to relog in after a few hours, it might be temporarily blocked due to excessive log in attempt.

If you think you typed your password correctly, check the following:

  • Is your CAPS LOCK key on? Passwords are case-sensitive, which means that "PASSWORD," "PaSsWoRd," and "password" are seen by Yahoo! as three different passwords. Try typing your password again, making sure to use uppercase and lowercase letters exactly as you typed them when you created your password.
  • Did you sign in with the correct ID? Make sure that you are using the correct ID (user name) when signing in to your account. If you have forgotten your ID, you can search for your ID online.
  • Have you changed your password within the last 24 hours? If you recently requested a new password or changed your password, wait 24 hours before typing your new password. Waiting allows your account to update. Otherwise, if you've entered your password too many times, you'll be locked out of your account for 24 hours from the last time you entered your password. This is a security feature. A good work around before you change your password is to close your browser, go to the Sign In page, clear your browser's cache, and carefully type your password again.
  • Delete your cookies. If your cookie isn't being accepted correctly, you'll be logged out of your account as soon as you move to a different page. To delete your cookies, follow the instructions in the online help for your browser. For example, in Internet Explorer 7.0 and 8.0, from the Help menu, select Internet Explorer Help, and then type delete cookies in the Search box:
  • Try another browser. For example, if you're using Firefox, try Internet Explorer instead.
If you're still having problems, please request a new password. After you receive your new password, you can change it.

Yahoo.com 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.)
http://thingsaboutcomputer.blogspot.com/2009/03/how-to-unlock-yahoo-when-account-is.html

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.

Dear sir, some one locked my yahoo pasword how can recover my password


From Yahoo.

This message is seen when an attempt to login has failed multiple time. As a security measure, your account has been locked to prevent unauthorized users from being able to log in to it. If you have not recently tried to log in, this is not necessarily a cause for concern. Another Yahoo! user may have mistakenly used your ID when attempting to log in to their own account.
The lock on your account will expire 24 hours after it was first locked. Don't worry-the lockout time period won't reset each time you try to sign in while the account is still locked. You can try to sign in again after the lockout time has expired. Note: Yahoo! is unable to provide you with the exact time that your account was locked or when it will be unlocked.
If you are still unable to sign in with your new password, please see the password problems help page for some common reasons why you are seeing the "Invalid Password" error.
