I regret to have to say that I have no special powers over Yahoo! (nor over Apple) accounts.

However, I can point you as to where to either regain access, or change passwords.

For Yahoo!: log in to mail.yahoo.com, then go to hover over the Gear button in the upper-right corner.

Select Account Info

then Account Security

There, put in your current password.

and click on the change password link.

Create a new password. (You may have to enter it twice, accurately, so be careful.)

Submit that. Once it is accepted, Sign Out. Wait a half minute or so, then sign in with your new password.

- As for changing an Apple ID password:

1. sign in to your Apple ID account at https://appleid.apple.com/

2. go to the Security section, and choose Change Password.

3. Enter your current or present Apple ID password,

then enter your new password ***** it, that you want to change it to, twice.

Submit that change (Change Password.)

4. And you should be able to sign in with the new password, shortly thereafter, to access Apple services and features.

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!

What is the benefit of this answer if I can’t remember my password?
Mac Support Specialist: Russell H., Long-time Computer Expert replied 4 months ago

I answered the question as to how you could change it.

Now, to retrieve or reset the password, when it is unknown or you have forgotten or misplaced it, is a different process - you cannot change the password ***** you have access to the account with the password. So, retrieve the password ***** way:

Then with your Apple ID, you go to this page and follow its process, to recover your Apple ID's password:

https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/appleid

and enter your Apple ID there, and then click on 'Continue'. Follow the process through to recover or reset your password ***** your Apple ID.

(This may be done on any computer or smart device with internet and web page access.)

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
