Locked out of yahoo account


If you suspect that someone has hacked your Yahoo! account or if you attempt to log in your account too many times with an incorrect password, Yahoo! might lock you out of your account.

After several failed login attempts, the Yahoo! security feature locks your account for a predetermined amount of time to prevent unauthorized users from accessing your account.

Unauthorized users might use your account to send unsolicited emails or intrude on your private content and emails.

Although being locked out of your Yahoo! account can be frustrating, you can gain access to your account and change your password after the lock expires.

Wait 24 hours.
Return to the Yahoo! website and click the "Sign In" link at the top of the page.


Click "I Can't Access My Account."
Select "I Forgot My Password" or "My Password Doesn't Work" from the list of options.

Click the "Next" button to proceed.
Enter your Yahoo! ID in the "My Yahoo! ID is" field.


Enter the security code in the "Enter the Code Shown" field. Click the "Next" button.
Click "I Cannot Access Any of the Above" and click the "Next" button.
Type the answers to the security questions in the appropriate fields.

You set these security quests when you created your Yahoo! Account.
Click "Next."


Enter a new password in the field and verify the password by retyping it in the field.
Click the "Next" button and Yahoo! resets your password.

The new password is effective immediately, allowing you to sign in your Yahoo! account.

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.

Why did Yahoo deactivate my account??


You can use the forgot password link to have a new password mailed to you, or you ca use the reset password function after answering the security question you made when you got the account. Most places will lock you out after too many incorrect tries.
