Where is my Yahoo account?

Answered by Robert Dupre

I recently had an issue with my Yahoo account and had to go through the process of recovering it. Here’s what I did to find my Yahoo account:

1. Open a web browser: I opened a web browser on my computer and typed in the URL for the Yahoo account recovery page, which is https://login.yahoo.com/forgot. This page is specifically designed to help users recover their Yahoo accounts.

2. Visit the account recovery page: Once I landed on the Yahoo account recovery page, I was prompted to enter my Yahoo email address or phone number associated with the account. I entered the email address that was linked to my Yahoo account.

3. Choose a recovery option: After entering my email address, I was given the option to choose how I wanted to receive the account recovery code. Yahoo provides two options: using a backup email address or a phone number. I selected the backup email address option since I had access to it.

4. Check the backup email address: Yahoo sent a confirmation code to my backup email address. I opened my email inbox and looked for the email from Yahoo. It had the subject line “Recover access to your Yahoo account” or something similar. I opened the email and found the recovery code inside.

5. Enter the recovery code: Back on the Yahoo account recovery page, I entered the recovery code that I received in my backup email. Make sure to enter the code exactly as it appears in the email, without any spaces or typos.

6. Verify the code: After entering the recovery code, I clicked on the “Verify” button. Yahoo then checked if the code I entered matched the one they sent. If the code was correct, I was taken to the next step.

7. Create a new password: Yahoo prompted me to create a new password for my account. It’s important to choose a strong and unique password to ensure the security of your account. I entered a new password and confirmed it by typing it again.

8. Update account recovery information (optional): Yahoo gave me the option to update my account recovery information, such as adding a phone number or an alternative email address. This step is optional, but it’s a good idea to have multiple recovery options for your account.

9. Account recovery complete: After updating my recovery information, if applicable, Yahoo confirmed that my account recovery was successful. I was then able to log in to my Yahoo account using my new password.

It’s important to note that the steps may vary slightly depending on your specific situation and the options available to you. If you don’t have access to your recovery email address or phone number, you may need to try alternative methods or contact Yahoo support for further assistance.

I hope this detailed explanation helps you find your Yahoo account!
