Problems logging in and can't get a reset code

If you're having trouble logging in to your Yahoo account and are not receiving a reset code, it might be due to a few reasons. Your recovery method may be outdated or inaccessible, your account may have been hacked, or Yahoo's systems might not recognize your account due to multiple incorrect attempts. First, check if you've entered the correct email for the account. If you've done that and still can't get a reset code, you might need to recover your account through your alternate email or phone number. If you still can't access your account, it might be best to create a new one and secure it properly. Be sure to update all your recovery information periodically.

Why is it asking for an account key and not letting me put password in?

Yahoo's Account Key feature is designed as a security enhancement to replace traditional password entry. Yahoo Account Key links your account to your mobile device, sending a notification whenever there's a sign-in attempt, which you can then approve or deny. This way, even if someone else knows your password, they couldn't access your account without access to your mobile device too. If you would like to use your password instead, you can always switch off the Account Key feature. To do this, go to the Account Security tab in your account settings, click on 'Yahoo Account Key' and then on 'Manage', and proceed to disable the feature. After doing this, you should be able to log in with your password.

How do I remove the new reply box from in front of every email message?

The "reply box" you're seeing is probably Yahoo Mail's Quick Reply feature and it's designed for convenience but if you'd rather it not appear, it can be deactivated. Click on the gear icon in the upper-right corner and select 'More Settings.' Click on 'Writing email,' and then unmark the 'default reply' box. If 'Show quick reply' is also checked, uncheck it to remove the reply box. Click 'Save' to finish. Please remember that updates to Yahoo Mail’s interface or policies might modify these steps. Please always refer back to Yahoo’s own help center or settings page for the most accurate and up-to-date information.

Verification code in yahoo not received

We understand you're having trouble receiving your verification code from Yahoo. This can occur for a variety of reasons. First, make sure you have entered your email address or mobile number correctly. The verification code is usually sent directly to your registered recovery email or mobile number. Check to see if the email has ended up in your spam or junk folder. If it's a text message, ensure you have good network coverage so that you can receive texts. Sometimes, delays in the network can also cause a wait. If you've checked all these and still haven't received your code, you might want to try the process again after a while.

yahoo verification code are not send to me

We're sorry to hear that you're having trouble receiving your Yahoo verification code. It's possible that there may be a slight delay with the delivery of the code. So, it's recommended that you wait a few minutes, then request another code if it doesn't arrive. Ensure your mobile number is correctly stored in your account details. Also, check if your SMS inbox isn't full and whether you're able to receive messages from different numbers. If you're still not receiving the code, you might want to consider trying an alternate sign-in method such as the Yahoo Account Key which is more secure and doesn't require codes via SMS.
