Do you have an email id?
The Internet became an integral part of our daily life. Nowadays people use to ask about our name, mobile number and email id for contact. This shows the importance of an email address in our daily life. When it comes to communication; email is one of the best alternatives after a mobile phone.
There are numerous email service providers available. Yahoo is one of them which provide free email services. Yahoo has its own search engine and Yahoo mail is its email service entity that serves worldwide.
Think about a scenario when you asked to reply a job offer from your Yahoo mail and you are not able to sign-in or when you need to write an urgent mail but your email is creating a problem while signing; what to do now?
We have a solution for you
There could be many reasons that you are not able to sign in your Yahoo user account; we can divide them into two categories. First is user id or password related and second is device-related problems.
A user id and password related problem are very common. People use to forget their user ids or passwords and then they find it difficult to sign-in. We are going to talk about both of the problems.

In case you are not able to recall your correct Yahoo id then simply take help from Sign-in Helper. Here you need your alternative email address or mobile number; Yahoo will send you a link to refresh your account.
If you forgot your Password
When you don’t remember your Yahoo id password then you can easily reset it. Just click on Sign-in Helper and go for a password recovery option.
When you deleted your browser history or cleared caches & cookies
Sometimes we use to delete browser history or clear caches & cookies then that browser couldn’t remember our Yahoo email credits; so we have to Sign-in once again with User ID and password.
Account Locked Temporarily
This is a security feature with your Yahoo mail account if try multiple times unsuccessful attempts then your account will be locked for security purpose. After 12 hours this security locked will be lifted. But you can easily regain access with the help of Yahoo Sign-in Helper.
If your Yahoo account is compromised
If you think that someone else is using your Yahoo account or changed your Yahoo account password then you should immediately reset your Yahoo account password. We also recommend increasing the security of your account from the Yahoo account’s setting section.
Invalid ID or Password
If you see an “Invalid ID or Password” error when trying to sign in to your Yahoo account, it means that the Yahoo ID or Password entered by you doesn’t match the record of Yahoo. In such a case, you will need to look for the following:
Signing in for the first time here?
If you are trying to log in from a program, device, or location which Yahoo hasn’t noticed you using before, you may be prompted to enter an Account Key (sent to either your registered email address or phone number) in order to verify you as the rightful owner of the account.
However, if the account verification information shown for your Yahoo account is outdated, unfortunately, due to security and privacy reasons, Yahoo will not be able to allow you to reclaim your Yahoo account until you prove yourself as the rightful owner. So, make sure to always keep your account recovery information up-to-date whenever you change your email address or phone number.
These are a number of ways by which you can easily fix the Sign-in problem of your Yahoo account. Still, if you are not able to get into your Yahoo account then you can contact Yahoo customer service team for an ultimate solution.
