Can't access to account and alternate email

Ask a question Tim - Last answered on Oct 16, 2016 at 04:18 PM by Ambucias
Hello,

I wanted to log in but the software noticed some special activity so I'm just able to get a new password by receiving it to the alternate mail address. I don't have access anymore to this account. If there is a security question I will definitely know the answer but no ine asks for that. It can't be that this is the only possibility to recreate a new password.

yahoo Id: ***@***
alternate email was ***@***

I just want to delete my flickr pictures because I don't want them to exist in the internet anymore.

Sorry but in your case account recovery is impossible.

Sorry Tim but no. Anyway nobody can access your account to view the pics and after 12 months of inactivity your account will be deleted from the server.

Thank you Ambucias!

One last question.
When the yahoo Account will be deleted after 12 months, why is the flickr account still alive? Because I definitely did not use my yahoo account in the last 12 months.

Are you certain that your flickr account is still active ?

I can find the profile via google so the account is stiöl active. But I have not accessed to the account for ages. At least for 7 years. (my email address was deleted since I was inactive for at least 5 years) That's why I'm a bit confused of the visibility of the pictures. I have not access to my email address so I can't log in to the flickr account aswell.

Finding your account on Google does not mean that the account is active.
