Hello,

Ok, so i need to access an old email (Yahoo) in order to change passwords on other sites.
However, to do so it requires me to use the verification code sent to an old phone number which i no longer have access to. Any ideas?

Hello

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.

Sorry
