  • How to Recover a Lost Yahoo Email Password

    There are three basic ways to regain access to a Yahoo email account when someone loses or forgets his/her Yahoo email password:

    1. Reset the Yahoo email password online
    2. Recover the Yahoo email password from the web browser
    3. Recover the stored Yahoo email password from the Windows Registry

    Reset the Yahoo Email Password

    The easiest way to recover a Yahoo email password is to go to the Yahoo! Sign-in Problems page. After going to the above mentioned link, follow these steps carefully:

    1. Select I forgot my password and click Next.recover-yahoomail-password-01
    2. Enter the Yahoo email address and type the alphanumeric characters from the image shown. The latter verifies that the user is human and not some computer operated program. Click Next.recover-yahoomail-password-02
    3. Enter date of birth, country of residence, and the postal code. This information should be the same as what was entered when the email address was created. Click Next.recover-yahoomail-password-03
    4. If the prior information is correct, Yahoo will ask for a new password for the Yahoo email address. Retype the password for confirmation.
    5. Log into the Yahoo mail account with the new password.

    Recover the Yahoo Email Password from the Web Browser

    Most Yahoo users allow their web browsers to store their Yahoo password. Each web browser stores the Yahoo password in a different manner.

    The method for recovering these stored passwords is different for each web browser.

    How does Internet Explorer password recovery work?

    How does Netscape Navigator password recovery work?

    Getting the Yahoo Email Password from the Windows Registry

    If running Yahoo Messenger and Yahoo Email, use Mail PassView or Advanced Instant Messengers Password Recovery to retrieve the Yahoo password from the Windows registry.

      I have a little used yahoo email account and I have forgotten the password or the password I have does not allow me to access the account. Unfortunately, the recovery e-mail that I gave to yahoo was xxxxxxx@yahoo.com when in fact it is xxxxxxx@yahoo.co.uk. I completed Help recover password docs and got the e-mail acknowledgement to xxxxxxx@yahoo.co.uk BUT the recovery code was sent to xxxxxxxxx.@yahoo.com, I even got a confirmation to my mobile number BUT NO INFO or contact that is helpful for my predicament. I telephoned the Phone Number provided by Oliver (Thank you, Oliver) but it terminated without a response. I am a Senior and have spent three days trying to solve this BUT THERE IS NO REAL HELP from YAHOO. I am now worried that the holder of account xxxxxxxx@yahoo.com has received the code and may be accessing MY account. PLEASE HELP. Anna
