Help with my Yahoo issue
GetHuman635035's next move: find and follow the right step-by-step guide.
Yahoo doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman635035 will need to dig through the advice provided by Yahoo, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman635035 can let us know if they help or not.
If time is of the essence or you are lost, we partner with a BBB-accredited US-based company that has live experts you can chat with about issues like this for roughly $20-45. Chat now with an expert.
Top Tip from another customer
If you're having issues with a password, try resetting it using your email address (be sure to use the correct spelling). Click "Forgot Password" under the login, then follow the prompt. You should have the option to reset with your phone number.
The issue in GetHuman635035's own words
I got a new phone number and didn't think to reset the Security key phone number to the new phone. Now I can't log in with my new phone. I tried logging in with my personal laptop that has always worked and it won't work without the security key now for some reason. I apparently didn't set up a back up email either. So now I'm completely locked out of my email. I have my password. I have my SSN. What do I need to be able to get in without that old stupid phone????
