Wow I don’t have access to that account. There is no other way to change my password ***** update my information
Email technician: Josh, Computer Enthusiast replied 4 months ago

No. The account owner is responsible for making sure their recovery options are up to date.

That is where the issue is -- You need your password ***** update them. The recovery options need to be kept current for this issue exactly.

As two experts have helped you hence I guess most possible ways have been tried and failed. I just want to know a few things not mentioned above.1. As far as you remember, so far, what questions were asked by Yahoo during the password ***** process?2. How did you answer those questions? You don't need to tell me those answer. I need to know the accuracy. Did you answer something not 100% sure, or in other words, guessed?3. Is there any device, especially mobile device you used before, still having access to the Yahoo messages?

Thank you. I was able to reset my password
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 4 months ago
Great. All fixed now?
Ask Your Own Email Question
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 4 months ago
Cool! This time you better write down your password ***** it at a place safe yet easy to access, such as under your TV. Or you may change the password ***** something always seen by you but no one else could guess, such as your TV's model number or even serial number.
