Posted by john williams on June 29th, 2021

Yahoo has been a part of the email world for a long time. From working with emails to getting the latest news, everything can be done through Yahoo! As an email service provider, it is used by millions of users around the world. What makes it so popular is; It is an easy to use interface and security features.

Forgetting passwords is a very common scenario, as it is not possible to remember all passwords every time. If you no longer remember the correct password for your Yahoo account, you need not worry, as Yahoo provides some easy methods to recover your password.

To perform the Yahoo password recovery process, you have two options:

One is through the mobile number linked to your Yahoo! account.

Another is to use the alternate email address added to your account.

Note: Yahoo does not send the lost password, you can only set a new one by verifying your identity.

Password reset using mobile phone number

Go to the Yahoo Login Assistant page and click on the "Login Difficulty" option.

2. From the available recovery options, select the one that asks you to enter your phone number.

3. On the next page, your phone number will be displayed on the screen, click "Yes, text me with a verification code".

4. Fill in the code you received on your phone and press "Verify".

5. You will see all of your Yahoo email addresses linked to your phone number.

6. Click the account for which you are recovering your password.

7. You will then see a message that you have successfully logged into your account.
