Hello,
I am finding problem with my yahoo account. It appeared that some one might have he or her way to it.
Why I say this is, I have try to login the recovery phone number it could not go and the said question email recovery address was not set by me.
The truth is I can't say were my father born.

Unfortunately, if, when you created the account, you have not registered an alternate recovery email address to which you have access to receive an account key, you cannot prove that you are the account's legitimate owner. Hence account recovery is absolutely impossible and there is no way around it.

Yahoo may ask for a security question but they no longer work.

NOthing we can do.

Try to contact Yahoo, but since it is a free service good luck with any support!

We understand that this is too late in this circumstance, but always create IMPORTANT accounts, such as email, and lesser important accounts, such as social media, on a landline workstation. A landline workstation can be laptop on wifi, or a desktop on wifi for that matter. The important thing; the account is created from a WIRED, NON-cellular network.
The provider can offer many ways to recover your account, if you create it in this manner. Always attach a recover email, such as a work, or another email that you will not forget the username and password too (because it SO important)!
After you have attached another email address in case of forgetfulness, now you can attach a mobile device to the account. Now, if you lose, break, or stop having access to your mobile device (non-payment of services), you can still recover your account!
