Hello,
I have used the mobile app until now to access my yahoo emails. Today I wanted to log in via a latop (new browser) and I am asked to get a verification code because I've never used this device before. Both the secondary email address and the phone listed as options are outdated. I don't have access to them anymore.

Is there any way to update these via the mobile app? I still have access to my account via the mobile app (but not the mobile browser or any desktop browsers). Where do I find the account settings page via the mobile app?

I have read the info here and it wasn't helpful for my case. All recovery methods listed anywhere involve some sort of login from a browser which I can not use due to the problem I just described: http://ccm.net/faq/36332-yahoo-mail-how-to-recover-your-account

Hi

I beg your pardon but...

In this link:

under: Alternate ID Changed, the solution does not require some sort of login but directs you to a way to contact customer service.

Good luck
