What to do if you can't remember your Yahoo! password or security question answer

If you've been locked out of your Yahoo! Mail account, or if you've forgotten both your password and the answer to your security question(s), you can have Yahoo! reset your password so that you can log back in.  The process is very easy to do, and it doesn't take a long time.

Follow these steps to have your Yahoo! password reset:

- Go to the Yahoo! login page (login.yahoo.com).
- Click on the "I can't access my account" link.
- Choose the "I have a problem with my password" option and then click "Next".
- Enter your Yahoo! ID and click "Next".
- Click "Next" again to have a password reset email sent to your alternate email address (part of which will be displayed on the screen).
- Log in to your alternate email account, and when you get the email from Yahoo!, click on the link to reset your password, then create a new password.
