When you remove information from the Account Security page that information will still be available to use to recover your account for approximately 90 days. Yahoo does this as a security measure so that a hacker can't lock you out of your account by changing your recovery information. After that time limit expires the old recovery information will no longer be available as an account recovery option.
I had the Yahoo mail on mobile app. I lost it and now I can not access my account on my browser because I can not accept it from my application. And I have no access to the phone number because I lost the card with my phone
Nume utilizator : **Username Protectedemail@example.com . I can't log in on browser because i need to accept from app on phone. But i don't have phone... I have facebook on that email... I have steam acount on that email... All of stufs is on **Username Protectedfirstname.lastname@example.org. Change pass or deactivate app from phone if you can... I really need acces on email back...
As the subject says, I am currently locked out of both of my yahoo accounts, and the login helper is... not helping. This is such a frustrating process trying to figure out how to recover my accounts- no help chat, no customer service to call... please assist.
Thanks for nothing, I was able to get my game accounts unlinked from this piece of **bleep** email service without regaining access to my worthless accounts, so thank **bleep**ing god for that. I had pictures of naked women in there, but that's okay. I just wanted my hundreds of dollars worth of video games unlocked. **bleep**.
I forgot my identity password of yahoo mail app. Can someone tell what should i do?
How to Recover Your Account
If you forgot your password or a hacker has changed it this is the only way* to recover it. There are no exceptions. There is no phone number you can call.
All accounts must have at least one current recovery phone number or email address. It is better to have more than one in case you are unable to access one of the others. If you are locked out it is too late to change it.
It is highly recommended that you always have a non Yahoo recovery address.
Security questions are being phased out and will all be removed soon. You can remove them now under account security. They may have already been removed.
To recover an account or to get a list of accounts associated with a recovery phone number or email address click here.
NEVER use this method to change your password if you know the old one. Just go to Account Security under Account Info or click here.
* NOTE: There is a possibility that more options would be available if you have
Yahoo Mail Pro. It includes priority customer service and no ads. There will be a special website with email and chat. You can not sign up for new service without your password so it is only good if you purchased it ahead of time.
Desktop price is $3.49 a month or $34.99 a year.
Mobile price is $.99 a month or $9.99 a year.

The only way to recover a password is with a current recovery phone or email already on file. Sorry.
This issue should now be corrected. I do see that mail is operating properly. Please test our account once more.
Hi there. My Yahoo account was de-activated or removed sometime last month when Yahoo and Rogers Canada decided to de-couple their respective mail accounts. I can sign in using my @rogers.com account but my Yahoo account it no longer active.
I tried to recover it but Yahoo states that my user ID is not a valid ID. I can't even ask for help using the regular help methods because I can't even identify my Yahoo ID.
Can someone please tell me how I can get my Yahoo ID re-instated? Thanks in advance.
I'm sorry but it's unlikely you will be able to recover this account. What I would do is create a new Yahoo account.

Use the following article to secure it properly.

I always recommend that people add at least two recovery email addresses and make one of them a non-Yahoo email address. Since you will have to add a mobile number during the account creation process that will give you three ways to recover this account in case that's needed. Be sure you check the recovery email address at least two or three times a year just so you can make sure you can still access them. Make sure you update your recovery phone number if your mobile phone number changes.
You can also use a password manager like KeePass or LastPass to create and store strong unique passwords for the sites you visit. These programs can also automatically log you in to any web site you have stored in its database.
I'm having trouble changing my full name for my yahoo account. The field for full name is not clickable so I have no way of changing it. It is the same case for DOB. I can change my nickname through the account options BUT it still has my incorrect nickname when I sign in.
I've seen a lot of people reccommend changing the mail sending name BUT these are two different things because my mail sending name is correct even though my full name in the account settings section is incorrect and it shows my incorrect name when I log in.
I've seen a lot of posts on this issue so YAHOO, please figure out a solution soon.
Thank you for reaching out!
The following article will show you how to change your name everywhere on Yahoo!
Hope this helps!
Make sure you are changing the right name, not the one in your account but the "From" name in your email. Here is how.
Change your sending name in Yahoo Mail
Did you recently get married, change your name, or just want to reinvent yourself? Just change the "From," or sending name, that displays to your recipients.
