Yahoo users face multiple types of issues while login into their accounts. But one of the major issues that we all surely experience once with an online application is to forget the password. However, it is a very common issue these days and there are too many tutorials available on online platforms to recover your Yahoo account. This problem basically occurs when we forgot Yahoo password and try to log in it by entering the wrong password multiple times. Yahoo is a highly secure application and doesn’t open with any random password. Therefore, either you have to enter the correct password or you can also change it to a new one.

  • Click on the “Difficulty sign-in” option available on the login page.
  • Enter your registered contact number or email address. If you do not have any of these then you can also enter recovery email address and phone number.
  • Click on the “Continue” button available below.
  • Now Yahoo will ask for your permission to send a code on the entered details. So, make sure that whatever email address or phone number you are entering in the previous field is available with you.
  • Click on the “Yes, text me the account key” option to receive a text on the contact number. Instead of this, you can also choose to receive a Yahoo forgot password link on the email address.
  • Enter the 8 digits unique code available via text or click on the link received on email.
  • Click on the “Verify” option to access your Yahoo account.
  • On the next page, you will get an option to change the old password. Click on “Create a new password” option if you have forgotten it and want to change the password. You can also skip this step if you already know the password.
  • Enter the new password again and click on the “submit” button to confirm it.

Now you can access your Yahoo account with the new password.
