I am locked out of my yahoo account, even though I give all

Customer Question

I am locked out of my yahoo account, even though I give all the right answers
JA: How long have you had this issue with your Yahoo account?
Customer: Periodically, but I was able to access it today. It keeps referring me to 5/16 where apparently there was evidence of compromised emails
JA: Have you installed any updates recently?
Customer: no. I use the computer a lot because I am a writer but I usually use word pad and print out, don't get a lot of use out of e-mailing only a few friends (3) and the rest advertisements. I am eighty one years old
JA: Anything else you want the computer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: The only problem is with my yahoo e-mail. I have a g-mail account that is currently working but when I go into yahoo and use that tp send an account number, once I switch to the account verification number, yahoo asks me the same information and refuses to accept the verifying account number that they sent and I have to ask for another. I do not know how to keep yahoo and switch directly back from gmail
