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 GetHuman-babogacz's own words
Sign in and change my password ... I have a Yahoo email account and I cannot remember the password and over ** years ago I had a different phone number than I do now so I cannot reset my password.
It keeps telling me that there is nothing I can do
I need to change my phone number on my account so that I can sign into my email.
I have had this email for over ten years
I have an issue with Yahoo too
