I am unable to access my email account with yahoo. Yahoo did a security update and I forgot my password and the cell phone number I gave as the contact number is no longer active.
I really need to access the emails asap!
Is there a solution?
Thank you!

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
