Hi everyone,

Please help me sign in to my account.

I know my password but I cannot login.

Yahoo says they "noticed some unusual account activity."

So I need to give them a code that they would send to me via text or call.

However, my phone was lost. And I used that as my recovery phone for my Yahoo account.

Is there a way I could just login to my account using my password only?

Thanks.

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 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!

We can’t help you .You have posted your question on CCM.net, we have no business connections with Yahoo
