How to unlock Yahoo Account immediately ?

We have come up with two methods to unlock your Yahoo Mail account quickly.

Method I:

When you log in to your account, cookie in the form of packets of data are stored on Yahoo servers. These cookies are the one which helps recognize your Yahoo account for further references. But when someone attempts a sign in using wrong password the cookies are deleted. And when the limit number of attempts are crossed the cookies expire. This stimulates the Yahoo filters to think account activity as suspicious and thus locks it temporarily or for so called 12 or 24 hours.

To unlock or unblock your account you can try to Log in using another Yahoo server. These results in formation of new and fresh cookies. New server do not have any knowledge of expired cookies. And you are able to login and access your Yahoo! mail account again.

You can use any server listed below. (Try different servers if one doesn’t work.)

Method II

  • Remove POP and IMAP settings from email client software.
  • Revoke access to all third party apps and software.
  • Use any other browser to log in a re-open your account.

    Been locked out of my laptop and now also my old phone, I can’t access my mails. Yahoo server sign in is not helping either, doesn’t provide other alternative to retrieve password. Before I locked up from my old phone tried to reset the password but on numerous occasions they didn’t send the confirmation email to change password. Worst service ever. How do I get my yahoo account back when nothing seem to be working? As I switch to gmail #disappointed client
