Yahoo! provides three methods for validating your identity when you've forgotten your password:

  1. Phone/texting number
  2. Alternate email address
  3. Security questions

Depending on the options you configured when you first created your account, some of those validation options may not be available for your account.

If you run into any problems or have further questions, please let me know!
