Change Password

Change Password

With duel authentication and security features I now can't find a simple way to change my password. This is critical and after a hours I still can't find a simple resolution to change password. I just get ways to get into my account without changing it. I want to completely change my password as it has been compromised and I want to change it. This now seems to not be an option as it takes you down the authentication path to access not make changes

Re: Change Password

Just go to Account Security under Account Info or click here.

Make sure your phone and email are current. There is no way to verify or recover an account without them.

Re: Change Password

The only place under account security to change passwords is for apps. I want to change the password on my Yahoo Plus account. Please point me to a place to reset my word

Re: Change Password

AmericanSurplus,

follow the advice from Bartley_Hound  but disable the 'securuty key' before going to 'account secirity' and you will get a screen that allows you to make a new password.  Afterwards you will have to reinstall your 'security key' (if you prefer) and change the passwords on your mobile apps.
