Unfortunately, if, when you created the account, you have not registered a secret question which you remember, or an alternate recovery email address or phone number to which you have access to receive a reset code, you cannot prove that you are the account's legitimate owner. Hence account recovery is absolutely impossible and there is no way around it.

There is nothing you can do if you created the account on the mobile device or number you no longer have access to.

Always create accounts on a PC or Laptop (landline IP), and then attach a mobile number to it. That way, you can have multiple ways to recover the account!

I think you can try to do it if you remember the additional email address you had to enter while registering on yahoo. Try to click on "Trouble signing in?" which is under the line where you should enter your yahoo address, and follow the instructions. Maybe you have a chance. Good luck!
